    TULIPS - This is amazingly beautiful!

    At first glance, it looks like a giant child armed with a box of crayons has been set loose upon the landscape. Vivid stripes of purple, yellow, red, pink, orange and green make up a glorious Technicolor patchwork.

    Yet far from being a child’s sketchbook, this is, in fact, the northern Netherlands in the middle of the tulip season. With more than 10,000 hectares devoted to the cultivation of these delicate flowers, the Dutch landscape in May is a kaleidoscope of giddy colors as the tulips burst into life.

    The bulbs were planted in late October and early November, and these colorful 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 .

    I've seen fields and fields of tulips in the Amsterdam area and they are amazing.

    Oh that's lovely.
    Not too long ago I watched a show called Wallender, set in Sweden and on one show they had a girl running and hiding in a field of some sort of tall yellow flower. as tall as she was. i always wondered what they were.
    not tulips anyway.
