Fields of tulips

I know this is one of the standard touristy postcards from the tulip fields of the Netherlands, but I do love it.  Tulips are very much associated with the Netherlands.

I used to live in an area in the south of England where a farmer started raising tulips, not for their blooms but for their bulbs, to sell them at garden centres.  Of course you can't raise tulips without  the flowers so the fields around were a delight to see in springtime, not unlike the ones pictured.

It was a beautifully mild and sunny day today, a taste of spring, so I was reminded of this card.

  1. I've never seen anything like that before! That is why people shouldn't shy away from popular tourism because we miss out on so much. This is just a beautiful site. I tried to imagine how magical each individual colour must be.

    1. The only drawback could be that it's for such a short time and everyone goes at the same time.

      PS - I didn't have to rescue you from spam. Progress!

  2. The colors are amazing, I used to see fields like that on a smaller level when I lived in California.

  3. I love this card. I have seen similar ones from Poland and they too are awesome.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
