The Bulbs of Holland-A Garden Story

March 23, 2011

The old guy must be eighty, and he pulls up on his bicycle to stop and chat, and to check out the thousands of tulips in bloom in a one acre garden.

“It sure is pretty,” he says.  “It looks just like Holland.”

I am about to ask him when he visited the Netherlands when he asks me:

“Have you ever been to Holland Michigan?”

A lot closer than the Netherlands, we can just pretend we’re in the Netherlands and save money.
