Today, I drove north to Pilot Point, Texas to check out a tulip farm. The farm is closing for the season in just a few days, so most of the tulips are gone, but it was still worth the visit. Texas Tulips is owned by a family from the Netherlands, and what they have accomplished is rather amazing. I've seen tulips in and around Amsterdam, and that someone would even think of growing them in Texas is incredible. Next year, I plan to stop by sooner in the season when more of the tulips are in bloom, but in the meantime, here are a few photographs. By the way, any flowers that you pick and purchase are beautifully wrapped, and young Pieter does a very good job!
