Tulips, Holland, and the Biltmore Estate in N.C.

If you have an affinity for tulips, then there are certain places you might want to put on your radar for future trips. One is Holland, and one is the Biltmore Estate in N.C. One other place where I witnessed incredible tulips was on the Canadian side of Niagra Falls. There are thousands of tulips at the Biltmore Estate, and on the Canadian side of Niagra Falls. Holland, I do not know, but I am sure they are stunningly beautiful. Tulips are a fragile breed, and their window of opportunity is brief. Sometimes a visual moment can change your life forever. Such is the case with tulips in the spring.

Tulips by John O'neil

You don’t need a green thumb to appreciate the colourful, dazzling spectacle of the Floriade World Horticultural Expo. The floral extravaganza is the pride of the Netherlands and a rare treat, taking place just once every 10 years with glorious displays of flowers, plants and trees from dozens of countries, plus themed cultural programs with music, dance, literature, theatre and visual art.

Tulips are a rare spectacle of color and form, and can be cultivated in your own backyard if you don’t live in the desert. They are the entry into spring, and there are spectacles of them in places like the gardens of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C. in April each year. Pencil in “Spring and Tulips” for your next cultural extravaganza.
