    Everywhere you looked there were carpets of glorious colour. The whole of the gardens were drenched in the scent of hyacinths and other aromatic flowers and plants. Absolutely breathtaking.

    So much colour, my eyes are bleeding :) Great shots Eileen. It looks like a place you could spend your whole day just walking around, correct?

    Those bulb fields sure did look spectacular. Did you get closer to them then in the pic?

    Off to look at the next batch...

    We could have spent a whole week there Frank as there were still loads of bulbs and plants just about to burst into bloom.

    Wow that really does look nice. Where abouts is this? Are there any good places in London. Kew Gardens? Chelsea flower show? what are they like?
