Mondriaan makes an appearance in Amsterdam
MDs who’ll be in Amsterdam between March 23 and May 21 next year, may want to visit the famed Keukenhof gardens (actually located in Lisse between Amsterdam and The Hague). The garden’s theme for 2017 is Dutch Design and, this past October, gardeners began planting some of the seven million flower bulbs that will bloom next spring. One flower mosaic will depict a Mondriaan painting combined with designer chairs. The mosaic will cover 250-square-metres and be planted in two layers to ensure a longer bloom period. It’ll consist of 80,000 tulips, muscari (grape hyacinth) and crocuses. Keukenhof’s 32 hectares feature 15 kilometres of footpaths and attracts over a million visitors every year. Adults €16; kids four to 11 €8. keukenhof.nl.
