Mosaics and Tulips

 
 

 

           Blooming bulbfields, beautifully arranged and well kept gardens,

           more than 100 flower mosaics and tulips, beautiful with daffodil 

           and guirlanders decorated streets and bridges.

           Anna Paulowna is the centre of the biggest bulb growing area of

           the world.

           Thousands of visitors come to see the flowermosaics displayed

           in competitors gardens to admire the fine workmanship evidenced

           by these beautiful works of art. The flowers are fastened with pins

           to a styrofoam base on which the picture desired is first painted.

           About 10.000 pins and flowers are used for each square meter

           and they are attached with precision. Mosaics are made in a number

           of subjects: cartoon characters, paintings, portraits and topics of

           the day.

           The mosaics have but a short life since they are made of the tiny

           flowers that grow on the hyacinth. There are many colours to

           choose from, so in one mosaic one can get great contrast.

           The "Poldertuin" in Anna Paulowna have on large variety of bloo-

           ming flowerbulbs in a very well kept garden.
