Last year I was introduced to tulip patches here in our region and wrote about here and here. I knew about the tulip farms in the Nederlands, but wasn’t aware, that there are also tulip farms here in Germany. Friends of mine are living in that area, so I asked them to drop me a note, when the tulips are out.
I hope, you’ll enjoy them as much as I do. So, don’t miss the gallery at the end of this post.
As I mentioned last year, the tulips here are grown for selling the onions, not the flowers itself. So, they start mowing the blossoms at a very early stadium. As you can see, many rows of tulips are already cut. But, there were enough remaining tulips for some nice photos. So, you only have a very small time window, to go and take photographs. That’s why I went as soon as possible after work and didn’t wait until the weekend or better weather conditions.
I got the note on Sunday evening, that my friend found 4 patches. When I arrived at Tuesday afternoon, two of them were small and already cut down except a few remaining rows. I also saw here and there a few rows next to the streets. But, the other two patches were still in guid shape, although the farmer was already cutting blossoms with his mowing machine.
Enjoy the colors!
