Flower fields in Lisse-or a tip toe tulip history

The tulip was originally a wild flower growing in the Central Asia area and first cultivated by the Turks in early 1 AD. The flowers were introduced in western Europe and the Netherlands in the 17th century by Carolus Clusius, a famous biologist

Lovely flower/plant exhibition

In Ghent/Belgium, the "Floralies exhibition" are famous, but i was always curieus and fascinated about a small place in southern Netherland called Lisse, visited by many VT-members, and located near Haarlem and Rotterdam. I went there to get the proof. And finally i have to admit Keukenhof offers you the opportunity to see millions of bulbs in flower, fantastic flower shows and the largest sculpture park in the Netherlands Enjoy the spring!

    Lisse near Haarlem and Rotterdam????? You'd better drive a P...... instead of a Honda, it would lead you in the right direction which is Leiden. Nice photos, by the way.

    Hi Luc, thanks for your virtual postcard. This looks like a great place for cycling. I like your flower and windmill photos on this fine new page.
