    If the sight of daffodils and other spring flowers raises your spirits after the greys of winter, why not pop across to the Netherlands and see the tulip fields in all their myriad colours? Let our gallery whet your appetite for the glory in store.

    Each year, from March to May, the Dutch countryside becomes a sea of tulips, hyacinths and all manner of other flowers. Mere photos can only give a hint of the pure explosion of colour and scent all around. Amsterdam's bulb belt stretches for thirty miles from Haarlem, just outside the capital, to Leiden. Known as Bloembollenstreek – bloem is bloom or blossom, bollen is bulbs, and streek is region – it's a low land area close to the North Sea coast with a sandy soil and mild wet climate that makes it ideal for bulb cultivation.

    The best way to view the sights is to rent a bike and cycle, maybe along the trail that links Oude Wetering and Gouda, or the one from Gouda to Willemstad where there is the attraction of the traditional Dutch windmills to add to the picture-perfection of the views. There's the chance to attend the biggest flower auction in the world at Aalsmer, or visit the Keukenhof gardens and have your breath taken away by the spectacle produced by over seven million flowering bulbs. “Get on you bike” never sounded such fun!

    Re: The tulip fields of Holland.

    You do know that the best Tulips come from Persia not Holland? & that they've basically imported it.. the name Lalee (in Persian) means Tulip.. it is their state flower and a popular girl's name..
    unlike un cute albino rabbits who freak me out.. Flowers of any type are such a welcome sight & a treat for the senses...

    thank you..

    Yup,im in love with Persian Roses since i was in School.The Schools were under the administration of people who belong to Persia and they brought thousands of Persian Rose plants for the School building and those were just amazing

    Did you ever see a Purple rose sis?There was just one plant of that beautiful purple rose and Little Endy was mad about it

    I thought the name is "Lala" means "Desert Rose" :><:
