Who wouldn’t like having the chance to win something?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have an unexpected surprise gift come though the post?
The floral brightness of the Keukenhof and the coming of Spring has inspired me to run a competition.
To be in to win all you have to do is to tell me which of my recent posts has been your favourite and why, and in doing so your name will be in the hat as my possible winner.
I will draw a winner on 11th May and one lucky reader will be the recipient of a little goodie bag from Kiwidutch.
The Keukenhof is full of features that compliment the floral displays: large statues such as the stylised figure on horseback or the stylised figures , various artworks some more serious than others.
Two of the more serious statues are wooden carvings of the composers Brahms and Chopin, one that is taken less seriously is of a seated bare chested lady where I had to wait for a large batch of Russian men to finish taking photographs of themselves handling her considerable “assets”. The more traditional features of the Keukenhof are things like the large windmill that offers a wide view of the exhibition on one side and of the bulb fields outside the exhibition on the other, or the set of traditional bells in the style still seen outside some Dutch churches. Most of all I like the fountains, and the water features like the ponds and mini rills that reflect the flowers and the sky…nature on display, and beautiful.
