So, I know I had promised to post the pictures I took of the different tulip varieties I saw while in the Netherlands, but to be honest I was feeling kinda lazy, lol. I finally uploaded somewhere some days ago so I could share them with you. Please excuse the low quality :( I took them using a mobile phone camera!

They are screaming spring, @Trellum and they are just so beautiful. I had a few frizzy ones in my garden last year until the squirrels decided to eat them!

Oh gosh. I love tulips! Those are amazing. Reminds me of when I used to go to the Skagit tulip festival in Mt Vernon, WA every spring.

Fun fact about Netherlands and tulips: Tulips were the first speculated commodity to cause the world's first economic bubble.

@DeborahJane I'm glad you liked them :) Yeah, if you have a local one go! It's lots of fun if you got a good camera. I've a lot different festivals to go to next year (this one was during the winter), so you guys can wait to see even more tulip pictures taken by me ;)

Beautiful Tulips, I wish I had better luck growing them. Thanks for sharing them.

You are welcome! And what's the problem you have when growing them?

Thanks for sharing that interesting fact with all us :) I had no idea! I can imagine how tulips could have caused such a shock and be considered a commodity ;)

Oh no :( I'm sorry yours got eaten! I hope you are more lucky next time :) You know? It's kinda funny, but I was telling my fiance back then that some of those tulips looked so good I could eat them :p Hehehe, I've always wondered if they are edible flowers or not.

When you have the chance you should do a quick read up on it. The history of how it happened and the aftermath is really fascinating.

Hi! Long time no see! And thank you :) I only wished I had a better camera back then, some people took some really profesional ones, can you believe one person even used a tripod? :LOL: My favorite ones had to be the pink frilled ones, as well as the lilac ones. I also liked the ones with red on the bottom and whitish pinking on top :) So hard to choose!
