The Netherlands:

 

'Keukenhof', page 1 (of 2)


Looking along one of the main walkways within Keukenhof.

Keukenhof is a special yearly flower display/show held in Lisse, The Netherlands. In 1998, it was held between 26th March and 24th May. Keukenhof is set up in an 80 acre park with gardens of tulips, narcissi, daffodils, hyacinths and other flower bulbs, along with ancient trees, ponds, fountains and pavilions.

This windmill was within Keukenhof, and visitors could explore inside it, and go up to a veranda level to get excellent views of the surrounding areas. I found it fascinating to feel the size of this windmill up close.
