Tulips! Tulips! Tulips!

Tulips, tulips, everywhere!

It is the season of tulips.  One billion tulips are grown each year.  Our climate is too warm for them to thrive here, but thankfully they appear in the stores at this time of year.   According to this UK article from MailOnline, there are 60 million tulips in the top photograph from the Netherlands.  Amazing!

  1. We have seen such a display of tulips while visiting with Mercy. Marysville, just north of Seattle, grows tulips just as the Netherlands photo shows - long, boldly colorful beds of nothing but tulips. It feels like being inside a cartoon.
