Starting of the tulip season.

Today we had the first show of tulip cultivators on the Dam square in the middle of town.
Only problem it was 5° C minus zero.
Despite the use of a lot of heaters some flowers didn't look so healthy.
But for the tourists and shoppers a bunch of free flowers was still a welcome present.

  1. Do tulips bloom in your winter or have these been grown in hot houses? Must be a wonderful sight.

    1. I am not sure, perhaps they are from hot houses but that is not custom for the tulip industry.

  2. Hi s.c,
    Too cold for tulips! But looks like a fun event.

  3. I admire those two guys for being so cold yet wanting to bring a little laughter and enjoyment to the day.

  4. Fantastic thought! Tulips in January, outside. I love the guys with blue tulip jackets!

  5. Great expression on that last shot, does seem an odd time for an outdoor flower show...

  6. A tulip even in winter is an act of faith. Must be a cheery sight.
