Nederland - Anna Paulowna, Poldertuin

Nederland - Anna Paulowna, Poldertuin
After the construction of the Anna Paulownapolder an office of the water board was built. This stately home is locally known as Polderhuis. In 1885 the Poldertuin (Polder Garden) around the house was designed by landscape architect Jan David Zocher jr., who also designed the well known Vondelpark in Amsterdam and the garden of Soestdijk Palace. His gardens are characterized by winding paths and water features with bridges.

Polderhuis (nowadays privately owned) and Poldertuin were sold to the municipality. The garden is still owned by the municipality of Hollands Kroon, but since 2014 it is managed by a foundation. In autumn volunteers plant 220.000 flower bulbs, which are blooming between early April and mid May. The flower bulbs are donated by about hundred flower bulb growers in the region.

Park Poldertuin with its large variety of springtime flowers like tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and special bulbs and tubers is also called ‘Little Keukenhof’ and can be visited free of charge. The garden is a real hidden gem and almost unknown to tourists.

This is such a wonderful garden, an oasis of colours and scents. But I imagine all the work behind it to plant these thousands of bulbs.... The PiP's are great as well, they show several aspects from this hidden gem. HFF Jaap.

Such blooming beauty Jaap, so typical of Nederland. Makes us want to stroll through and take in these wonderful colours. Such a great pity that so many of the tulips to be sold and distributed now have no place to go. As usual well captured with this great series.

No question about the location of these photos once you lay eyes on the tulips! The main image is absolutely stunning Jaap...............and very well composed. The tuilips are gorgeous (of course) as are the colours, especially the the sea of red in the centre of the image.

All the PiPs are splendid with lovely detail and colours, I especially like the fifth one - a sea of colours surrounded by trees!

My favourite FF shots this week........so uplifting!
