Anyone who has ever been lucky enough to visit Amsterdam can attest to its beauty. The purpose of my recent visit, under the auspices of the International Bulb Centre, was to visit gardens throughout Holland filled with spring blooming bulbs.
On my last afternoon before leaving, I finally had some time to myself and quickly caught a train to Amsterdam. Once I stumbled into the flower market area, what can I say except that I was ‘hooked’? The first stall that hit me in the face was filled with flowers, dozens and dozens of ready to burst open tulips. The cost? 5 dozen for 12.50 Euro…about $17.
