    These absolutely astonished me. I had no idea that the Netherlands had any such products, or are they imported? Or grown in greenhouses? I've toured many greenhouses and nurseries here and in Canada and Hawaii, no one ever mentioned the Netherlands as commercial growers, it's far too cold there unless citrus is taken inside in winter. My DH was an active member of the International Society of Plan Propagators.
    None of them spoke of such things, or at least in some of the speeches I attended.
    These really are of a much finer quality than even the Rose Bowl Parade in southern California. I love the little Dutch Girl..she's charming. And the Mushrooms, I've always loved wild Mushrooms and hunting them with Grandma.

    I am from the Netherlands and this festival is not from the Netherlands. Maybe the south of France or Spain?
    We don't have mountains or hills that high and there are no palmtrees growing there. The climat is too low to grow oranges and palmtrees.

    Where did you get those photos? I am looking at the buildings and the hills, and the plants growing outside, and wondering where it is? I see some writing in French on one of the displays- Menton maybe?

    I am sorry but you are wrong.. I have just googled 'orange festival' it takes place around April 30 in Amsterdam, apparently the birthday of the queen, who is from the royal 'orange family' there is lots of info on the web.

    That's true. Our queen's birthday is celebrated on the 30th of april (her real birthday is in january). But we have the same climat as in England. Are there growing oranges and palmtrees in England? We have festivities all over the country but nothing like a parade with just oranges.

    I must apologise to you.. you are correct, I quoted direct from the site on the web and should have checked further, when I looked at the pictures again I realised they could not be Amsterdam, I have been there. It is the Festival Citrusov and is in the South of France, I should know not to believe all I see on the web. We can grow oranges/lemons outside in the very South of England but not commercially as far as I know, in other areas they are grown in greenhouses. we do grow palm trees outside over a lot of the South of England, we have them here in Kent. Once again I would like to apologise for believing the impossible.
