The chapel and the tower are also decked out with wonderful flower arrangements. Tulips, orchids and other bulbs can be purchased at the entrance to the castle.

    I went to Floralia for the first time in 2004 and I was absolutely blown away by the sheer number of flowers and the gorgeous natural setting. After seeing the Floralia display at the chateau de Grand-Bigard, my Mum (visiting from Canada) thought Keukenhof Gardens was boring! I went back a few more times but have skipped Floralia for several years as I found they were planting fewer and fewer bulbs.

    They’re back on track, though, and I really enjoyed it this year — especially since I managed to be there in the only sunny period of the day. It’s still on this week, so go and feast your eyes on the fabulous array of colours and flower varieties.

    I’ve posted a selecton of photos of this year’s gardens on my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/wendy.deyell
