Perry's Perennial Pages

Garden of the Month,  June 2002


Every 10 years an international flower show is held in Holland, the Floriade.  This year, near Amsterdam and Schipol airport, about 3 dozen countries are represented on the almost 200 acres, divided into 3 sections.  The key feature is a pyramid from which most can be seen.  These sample photos are from late April outside show gardens.

 For a quick overview, check out the Slide Show.
