The Most Beautiful Bulb Garden in the World: Keukenhof!(Photos)

Seasons change. Beauty fades. Life is short. Spring returns!

I found peace and joy this April on a return press trip, photographing the flowers of Keukenhof, just outside of Amsterdam -- the most spectacular bulb garden in the world.

I'll just let you enjoy the flowering bulbs as I did: lingering if you wish, and then moving along. Happy Easter!
