Spent April 6-14 in the Netherlands and want to report that the flowers should be peaking about now...we were just a tad early but still saw gorgeous displays at Keukenhof. We took a tour there from Amsterdam and had about 2 1/2 hours at the gardens - could have used another hour or so, especially since the weather was fantastic. A word of warning about the bus tours - always be a bit early for your times. We were 2-3 minutes late and found our bus gone! The time they give you is when the bus departs! We were able to hitch a ride with a bus from the same company fortunately.
