Tulip fields

This is a very common scene in the Netherlands. Vast fields of tulips are grown and ultimately auctioned off. Many are shipped to distant countries around the world within 24 hours of being picked. The tulips are grown in large patches of a single color in order to minimize cross-breeding between different varieties of tulips.
