This time of year is such an exciting time. The snow melts and the colors being to shine through! The flowers being to bloom and everyone is a little bit happier. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers, so I was quite thrilled when we recently moved to a little dutch town. Everyone here plants tulips! It is just plain beautiful to walk through the neighborhood and see all the brightly colored tulips lining the streets. One of my absolute favorite sights to see! iBulb (the flowering initiative from Anthos) supports 85 Dutch companies in the dry sales and forcing business, which together represent more than 90% of Holland’s flower bulb business.
With spring approaching and Easter and Mother’s Day just around the corner, these would make great gifts! While the potted bulbs may not have bloomed when you give the gift, the recipient will have a lasting gift that can even be replanted next year! They are readily available at your local grocery stores, garden centers, and flower shops so you can get started on your beautiful flowers as soon as you can get to the store!
