Netherlands South_Holland Bollenroute (Bulb-route) – April 2009

Flower Fields – Floriculture
The Netherlands, and specifically the provinces North- and south Holland, are known for the floriculture. Every spring, the flowering bulb-fields make for a beautiful landscape, and are a real tourist attraction

Here flowering hyacinths – the strong scent, that would make you faint inside, is really nice and heavenly in ‘open air’
The yellow narcissus spread between the hyacinths are ‘imperfections’, and have to be removed by hand, before the inspection comes to value the crop. We would have loved to move closer to also photograph the workers in the background – but were asked not to come into the field – We learned that the flowers are very vulnerable for all kinds of infections, and that people moving into the fields might spread those… so tourism isn’t all that nice for the farmers of the area.. :/
