Today, I received this postcard from the Netherlands.

Keukenhof, also known as the Garden of Europe, is the world's largest flower park. It is located in south Holland in the small town of Lisse.

More than seven million flower bulbs are planted annually in the park, which covers an area of 79 acres.  In addition to the millions of colorful tulips at Keukenhof, there is a fantastic collection of other flowers, including:  hyacinths, daffodils, orchids, roses, carnations, irises, lilies, and bluebells.

The gardens and four pavilions at Keukenhof attract approximately 800,000 visitors annually.  The park is open for eight weeks each year, usually from late March to late May.  Every year, Keukenhof creates a complete new look according to a central theme.  The theme for 2014 is "Holland."
