One of the most beautiful gardens that I have ever had the opportunity to visit was the Keukenhof Gardens in Holland. The garden is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary.
While we were living in Germany I had heard about the gardens and wanted so badly to visit. My cousin was also living overseas at the time. He was in Scotland experiencing a semester abroad at the Glasgow School of Art. (You can read about the beautiful library in THIS POST.) Eric had asked if he could come for a visit at Easter time and I knew it was the perfect opportunity to go.
Here is the Fashionista, aged 11 at the time, enjoying the metal lilypads the grace the lake.
