Last Saturday the tulip season started with an exhibition in the open air at Dam square in Amsterdam. Not such a great idea with temperatures below zero. The organisation was not able to find another location so they decided to put heaters between the flowers which didn't have much effect.
The public is allowed to pick 21 tulips for free but they looked miserable because of the cold.
But tell somebody it is for free and they will pick it anyway no matter how it looks like. Within three hours all the tulips had gone.
This woman is happy with her gain and gave me a smile.
