Photographer's Note

Are some people not veeeeery lucky? - ;o) - Living surrounded by colours for a couple of days each year, and then in such a cute house!...

Tulip plants are allowed to flower for just 7 to 10 days before mechanical harvesters sever the flower stalks in order to preserve nutrients in the bulb. This seemingly heartless process also encourages plants to produce side bulbs for future crops.

The Dutch are very proud of their flower bulbs. Flower bulbs in the Netherlands are both a product and a passion. Each bulb, they like to say, holds a promise - a promise of a world alive with colour and good cheer, from the last snows of winter through the first frosts of autumn...

* I first thought I had no pictures good enough for the TE book - too much postcards :o) - but I read somewhere ;o) that you can say you've a rather good picture when it has often been added as a favorite... Though this one is not my "own" favourite, I just realized that a lot of people seemed to like it enough to add it to their own favorite list. Thank you everyone!!! :o)))
