I’ve been asked where all the tulips are. Tulips are mostly grown in Northern Holland, so Maastricht doesn’t have huge fields of tulip bulbs. I did manage to take a couple of pictures of tulips decorating the roundabout just up the street from our flat.
A better place to get tulips this time of year is the Bloemenmarkt in Amsterdam. Dan & I stumbled upon it last Saturday morning while looking for the American Book Club store. The length of an entire block is taken up with stalls selling flowers, bulbs, and seeds.
There were even a couple of booths dedicated to selling cacti (and big ones).
We didn’t pick up any bulbs this time because we would have had to carry them all over the city with us, but the variety and prices looked great. I will be going back some time to pick some up.
