Today was our first day searching for tulips and we came across some beauties.  We headed out from Almere Haven and drove along the edge of the Markermeer with some fantastic views over the water and lots of marshland with cattle grazing and plenty of wildlife.

Before we went I found an article saying that Flevoland was the biggest growing region for tulips and we certainly found plenty once we got on the Tulip trail.  However, have to admit I was expecting colour for as far as I could see, and this wasn’t the case.  I know I’m guaranteed colour once we get to Keukenhof so looking forward to that.

We did spend a lovely day touring around though, had a lovely afternoon kip next to a stream and a tulip field and headed back to Almere Haven for the evening.

Here is just a small selection of the tulips…
