Artist's Description

Oops… I Don’t Think I Belong Here… – Tulip Plantation

Vivid streaks of colour draw your attention immediately 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.
I love walking around the tulip plantations and photographing the odd one that stands out … This beautiful red tulip had popped up in amongst the pink tulips… Sadly it will be removed, when the bulbs are lifted they are shipped and packed by colour… I guess the red one does not belong with the pink….
