Dutch Tulip Fields

Check out these photos taken in Spring of 2008. This magnificent sight can be seen in northern Netherlands - the middle of the {tulip season}. With more than 10,000 hectares devoted to the cultivation of these delicate flowers. This Dutch landscape is absolutely breathtaking - a kaleidoscope of colors - of tulips bursting into life. The bulbs are planted in late October and early November and are in full bloom by the end of April/early May. 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. In the first picture - you are seeing 60 million tulips blossoming.
