Tulip Fields

Today's inspiration is coming to you all the way from Holland. The last month I've been raving about all the new growth that has been popping up around our house this Spring. My mom, from Pretzel's Paw, sent me these phenomenal photos from the tulip fields in Holland - how I wish I could experience these amazing flowers in person! For now, the bird's eye views are going to have to suffice.



Here is an excerpt from the tulip article: "With more than 10,000 hectares devoted to the cultivation of these delicate flowers, the Dutch landscape in May is a kaleidoscope of giddy colours as the tulips burst into life.The bulbs were planted in late October and early November, and these colourful creations are now ready to be picked and sold as bunches of cut flowers in florists and supermarkets. More than three billion tulips are grown each year and two-thirds of the vibrant blooms are exported, mostly to the U.S. and Germany. In the first picture, an extraordinary 60 million tulips can be seen coming into flower." Wow!
