Did you ever visit a garden fair where you experienced a green overkill? Every 10 years there’s the Dutch Floriade that gives you just that. It’s 163 acres of endless flower park.

On Flickr you can find more pics and all the names of the perennials and bulbs they used for each border. And before I forget… Floriade is quite popular. 🙂
