tulip mania

Growing up in Northern Europe with Dutch parents, grand parents, aunts and uncles, it's only natural that I have an affinity for flowers. However, despite having lived in the Netherlands for six years, I don't remember ever having been to the famous tulip fields or the auction in Aalsmeer.

I would like to credit the photographer for these photos but they were sent to me in a forwarded chain of emails so I don't know where they originated...
