From Russia to Germany, Keukenhof themes
Every year for the last few years, a theme is chosen and elements are scattered throughout the park. Last year, it was “From Russia with Love.” To view the colourful mosaic reproduction of St. Basil’s Cathedral, visitors had to climb up to a makeshift landing to get the full effect, as shown here. The theme for 2011 is Germany: Land of Poets and Philosophers. On the website, you can see the 100,000 bulbs laid out last fall for the mosaic of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. I can’t wait to see photos of it in bloom.
