Tulip Time 2009

When I say that Veldheer Tulip Farm in Holland, Michigan has 5 million blooming tulip bulbs, it is hard to comprehend, right? I thought it might help to show you a casual photo from my last visit to Tulip Time in 2007. There are rows and rows of tulips blooming by color and variety. One of my favorites is called "Apricot Beauty." Are you thinking of planting tulip this Fall? Check out a neat tulip season & style guide here.

P.S. If you stop at Veldheer on your way to the Tulip Time festival, you will also see 50,000 daffodils, 10,000 hyacinths and 20,000 crocus blooming too! Simply breathtaking.

How apt to have a tulip farm in Holland, even if it is in Michigan. Nice to see your smiling face too Anne.
