Keukenhof attracts around 1 million visitors from all over the world in the eight weeks it is open and showcases 7 million bulb flowers that bloom in spring promoting one of the Netherlands' best-known export products. The 19th of May is the last day Keukenhof is open to the public.

For years, the Dutch agriculture, horticulture and logistics industries have been refined to swiftly deliver their produce to customers in the United Kingdom. A so-called "hard" Brexit could seriously impact the supply chain with delays expected at British and European ports if Britain leaves the EU without a deal. An emergency summit in Brussels on Tuesday was considering Britain's request for a further delay in leaving the EU. (AP Photo/Peter Dejong)
