Tulip Fields

This is actually my mother's photograph from my parents' recent trip to Holland, but oh how I wish it was mine and that I'd been there to see it with my own eyes. I usually post my own work here but this was too beautiful not to share.

A couple of hours north of Seattle is a tulip festival every spring that looks like this, the Skagit Valley Tulip thing. Holland is probably closer to you, though. A sight worth travelling to, I think!

Gorgeous- does Holland still import bulbs from Israel and then grow them in Holland? I think I heard that once and was surprised....maybe it was another type of flower

I have been Beth, although quite a while ago. It's a wonderful country to visit. Someday though I definitely want to make it there during tulip season!

angie said...

Amazing. When I lived in ORegon, I went to this tulip farm every spring where there were acres and acres of tulips just like these.

followthatdog said...

Beautiful. When you see photos like that is it no wonder so much important European art came out of the Netherlands.

Wow, all that are tulips? It must be a very beautiful sight.

My brother is stationed in Germany and he and his wife toddled on over there to see them. {lucky poopheads} This weekend they're going to Istanbul {again, lucky poopheads}. Oh well, do it while you're young and childless and living overseas...LOL!
Those tulips are just beautiful.
