Artist's Description

Who Painted The Fields Red?
Vivid Streaks – Tulip Plantation*

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 Southland New Zealand Oct. 24th 2011

Vivid streaks of colour draw your attention immdiatley in what was once grazing paddocks in rural Southland. Hundreds of hectares of tulips blooming all at once in every variety and colour and shape. These glorious blooms light up the country side for a short period of time and then disappear for another year. The flowers are removed to enhance bulb growth and then lifted. Most of the bulbs grown on New Zealand soil will be exported to the Netherlands and America. The bulbs are planted in nets in the ground in leased paddocks, once the bulbs are ready to harvest, the nets are and bulbs are lifted by machine, leaving most of the soil behind. Tulips are not a flower one would think of in New Zealand, but conditions are perfect for growing tulips.

Tulip bulb production is currently the number 1 horticultural crop in the southern regions of New Zealand. There is still room for significant expansion. Bulking up bulbs is the main business, not cut-flower production. Our long summer days and cool nights make ideal conditions for all type of bulb growing.

I will be away for a few days helping out at a wedding.
