A small, sleepy town in the west of the Netherlands comes to life every year in Spring as countless tulips begin to blossom in the neighbouring fields and dramatically transform the landscape into a palette of vivid hues as if from the stroke of a masterful artist’s brush. This outburst of colour and vigour seemingly stretching all the way to the horizon is a unique and an absolutely breathtaking sight that draws more than a million visitors from across the globe every season.

Located in the heart of Netherlands’ Bulb growing region, the town of Lisse with a population of just over 22,000 is a major tourist attraction during the blooming season. It is especially famous for its Keukenhof gardens which is a flower showcase of grandiose proportions and is primarily intended to advertise the Dutch flower industry as hundreds of growers come together to present their best work.

This year however, the garden was closed for public due to the pandemic and was reduced to offering virtual tours. As with any business this year, this had a huge financial impact on the garden. Nevertheless, as I was once again sifting through my archives, I found some really beautiful images that was worth sharing and maybe "extend" the virtual tour of the gardens.

The colours are out of this world. I know these fields and you've made them justice my friend. Nowadays everything is virtual.
