I brought some cutted flowers home so you can see the end of the glorious flowers.

I Here you see me helping Nico. Just for 5 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nico, the owner of the tulips, husband of a friend of mine.
He cuts the forgotten tulips by hand.
The others where done by a machine.
It is a very busy time and he is working hard these days
The same field after cutting the flowers,now the tulips are growing to the bulb.

This is the field I choose to tell something about the tulips. This part of The Netherlands, named Westfriesland is famous about the tulips.
This are not gardens but the way of making money for the tulips-growners. This tulips grown for the bulbs , and mostly export.
So when you buy tulips-bulbs remember this photo's and landscape.

I walked into the middle of a field so you can see the rows.

This field I will "follow"so you can see what happen with the plants.

The first step after 10 days blooming the flowers are cutted of, so the bulb can grow.

Spring in Holland.
This are the flowers of the willowtree.
We called them "pussycats".
It is in a park near us.

The tulip fields are blooming in april.
This is not a park.
The tulips belong to a tulip-crowner, after one week of blooming the flowers are cut of .
So the bulb can grow for better quality.
This part of Holand is where the tulipcrowners live and work.
