Hollands rural fields are simply spectacular when the tulips are in full bloom. Vivid reds, yellows, pinks & oranges cover the landscape as far as the eye can see.
The Tulips growing season is from March to August & the kaleidoscope fields are a huge tourist attraction. Over 9 billion tulips are grown here each season, two thirds of which are exported overseas.
Alas, this glorious site is rather short lived. Once the tulips are gone the fields are re-planted with rather ordinary crops of vegetables.
