Tulip growing in the Netherlands

These photographs, were taken in the nothern Netherlands.

The cultivation of flower bulb began more than 400 years ago and today Holland produces more than nine billion bulbs every year, of which two thirds are exported overseas.

Evenly distributed, this number would allow for almost two flower bulbs for every person on the planet.

  1. Nice to look at, but my nose, and eyes would stream constantly from the pollen. I have trouble with the variety of trees here, and as you know there are quite a few of them.
    Finland is about five times the size of Ireland, with the same population 5 million. (did I say that already?)

  2. Finland would have been a better choice for you if you were allergic to people :-)
