Spring in Holland …

Shared by Bear Tales follower Hilary

SPRING..like you’ve never seen it before ! …

Keukenhof – know as the Garden of Europe – is the one of the best places to view the abundance of spring flowers in the South Holland region of the Netherlands

Amsterdam’s flower market – the Bloemenmarkt – reflects the country’s passion for cut flowers and plants

Around seven million bulbs are planted each year in the park at Keukenhof, in an area of 32 hectares

The Bloemenmarkt – set on the capital’s Singel canal and said to be the world’s only floating flower market – has a score of stalls where you can buy all sorts of plants, flowers, bulbs and seeds

The mild climate of Holland, with its wet springs makes it an ideal place for bulb cultivation

Tulips originated in the east and were brought to Holland from the Ottoman Empire in the mid 1500s

In springtime, the lowland area by the North Sea is carpeted with fields of gladioli, hyacinths, lilies, daffodils, crocuses… And, of course, tulips

Keukenhof – literally ‘kitchen garden’ – is part of the hunting grounds of the ancient Teylingen estate

This year, the theme for the Keukenhof exhibition is Germany: Land of Poets and Philosophers

The patchwork quilt of colours in the Keukenhof park, just outside Lisse in South Holland, is a veritable feast for the eyes

The bulbs of Keukenhof are re-planted each year according to the current trends and in collaboration with a number of gardening magazines

Spring in Keukenhof is one of the main tourist attractions of the Netherlands

The best way to appreciate the full glory of the Dutch spring is to hire a bike and cycle one of the tourist routes among the bulb fields

Heavy rains bring stunning changes to Western Australia’s remote desert landscapes …

“A photographer working in one of Western Australia’s most remote communities has captured the stunning change to the desert landscape brought about by summer rain.

While a tropical low over the Pilbara has brought significant rain across Western Australia over the past week, the Ngaanyatjarra Lands and other parts of the northern Goldfields have experienced a particularly wet summer.

Jody Brown has lived in Warburton, 1,000km north-east of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, for around eight years, but said he had never seen the town wetter.

“It’s the greenest I’ve ever seen it, the grass is so long everywhere,” Mr Brown said.

“There are animals and wildlife and all sorts of things everywhere.””
