Holland is known around the world for its rainbow-hued fields of tulips, especially those located in and around Keukenhof. Millions of bulbs are planted in the park each year—visit in mid-April to see the flowers during their peak season.
Whiskey Barrel Planter! I wanted to make the mailbox area look pretty, but didnt want the same old flowerbed so this is what I came up with.....removed the bottom of the barrel filled it halfway with soil planted some (Tulip Bulbs for next spring) and then planted the rest of the Fall Plants -Mum, ornamental pepper, Ornamental Cabbage Kale, ivy, pansy and Red Fountain Grass. lots of color and beauty! ( Oh yeah a solar lanter for light).
