Photographer's Note

I found this picture in my archive, I will this picture places for the lovely perspective and pleasant colours.

In spring time we see a very wonderful nature, every day I enjoy the wonderful fields of Tulips of potatos or other fruits.
The farmers are busy with work on the fields, for a picture of them field this is no problem, yes with much pleasure.

I hope that you enjoy.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tulips cannot be grown in the open in tropical climates, as they require a cold winter season to grow successfully. Manipulation of the tulip's growing temperature can, however, allow growers to "force" tulips to flower earlier than they normally would.
Some historical cultivars have had a striped, "feathered", "flamed", or variegated flower, as in the illustration. While some modern varieties also display multicoloured patterns, this results from a natural change in the upper and lower layers of pigment in the tulip flower. Historical variegated varieties- such as those admired in the Dutch tulipomania gained their delicately feathered patterns from a viral infection. The mosaic virus is carried by peach potato aphids, Myzus persicae, an insect common in European gardens of the seventeenth century, in which peach trees were often a prominent feature. While the virus produces fantastically beautiful flowers, it also causes the plant to sicken and die slowly. Today, it has been almost completely eradicated from growers' fields.
