Bulb fields

The Keukenhof and the nearby village of Lisse are located in the so-called 'Bulb Region' ('Bollenstreek' in Dutch), in the west part of the Netherlands. Floriculture, the processing of bulbs for export, and other activities in the floral industry are major economic activities in this area.

When the bulb fields are in bloom it is one of our country's most visited tourist attractions. These 2 photos were taken from a viewing platform at the edge of the Keukenhof.

I'm linking to Floral Friday Fotos.

  7. I got one of your bulbs and it didn't work! I screwed into the lamp perfectly, too! :)

    just kidding. These fields are glorious! What fantastic colors. Re your question on Ocala: I think that lead bird is what we call a "Mucky Duck." They're ugly things and breed fast. We had tons of them in south Florida, but not so many here in central Florida.
