Eight Hundred Varieties of Tulip

Tulips at the Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse, The Netherlands

There are tulips everywhere, so we must be in Holland. After a lecture and visit to the Keukenhof Gardens—which are only open eight weeks each year and boast over seven million bulbs and eight hundred varieties of tulip—I can understand how "tulipmania" developed. With so many magnificent tulips, each one more beautiful than the next, it was impossible to pick a favorite. Striped, solid, tall, flat, ruffled, giant, and colors from white to dark purple. View the photos below and see if you can choose a favorite, since I can't.
