TIMING IS EVERYTHING-IF YOU’RE LUCKY

I returned a few days ago from a trip to Amsterdam with my brother Will. One of our goals was to go to Keukenhof, which boasts the largest flower garden in the world. The Netherlands is famous for tulips (among other flowering plants) and the guide books all say that peak season is late March to late April. March 30 seemed a good time to see vast fields of tulips. Except that after an hour trip to Keukenhof we discovered that the tulips hadn’t opened yet. We were about a week too early. Maybe next time, with better luck.
