Keukenhof Windows 8 Theme is dedicated to the beautiful Keukenhof garden situated in Lisse, the Netherlands. It is also known as the Garden of Europe and is regarded as the largest spring garden in the world. The park and garden covers an area of 32 hectares (79 acres) and is it one of the largest flower gardens in the world. Tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths are the three most common flowers found in the garden, and approximately 7 million flower bulbs are planted annually in the park.
The garden was established in 1949 by the then mayor of Lisse to provide a flower exhibit where flower growers from across Europe could showcase their hybrids and help the Dutch export industry (the Netherlands is the world’s largest exporter of flowers). The flower park is accessible by bus from the train stations of Haarlem, Leiden, and Schiphol. There are several gardens in the park such as the Amsterdam Garden, Herb Garden, Romantic garden, Selfie Garden, Insect Garden and the Historical Garden. The park is open annually from mid-March to mid-May. This year, the park was opened on 20th March 2015 and will close on 17th May 2015. In 2016, it would be open from 24th March to 16th May 2016. So, if you are planning to visit Netherlands during the spring season, make sure to include the beautiful gardens in your itinerary.

All of them are of 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution and will fit very well into Windows 8, 8.1 and RT screens of nearly all resolutions. Hope you all like this theme too. 🙂
