Last weekend the start of the tulip season was celebrated in Amsterdam on the Damsquare. There was a big picking garden on the square where 200 000 tulips were waiting to be picked.
many people came to Damsquare and of course the press was also there
The two ladies with the beautiful tulip-hats were the first to be allowed in to pick their flowers after the picking garden was officially opened
many people came to pick their share of tulips which were completely free of charge. everybody got a plastic bag to collect the flowers when entering but many people took more than one bag
some were prepared very well as the boy below
others used the opportunity for an exotic selfie
though people kept on picking it seemed to be a neverending abundance of tulips
with the beautiful weather it was really a very enjoyable event and I am still enjoying the abbundant tulips I took home
