Since I've got my parents' car on loan while they are on holiday in the Middle East, I can do a lot. I drive to work every day (I'm lazy), I can get the shopping in a lot easier and I can drive around the countryside.
I live in the Noordoostpolder, which is the oldest part of Flevoland, the newest of the twelve provinces in the Netherlands (hence the NOP in the title). It's a mainly agricultural area, with tulips and potatoes the two crops that stand out (and both have their own festival as well).
This photo shows you a field of tulips that have just been beheaded. Most flowers have lost their heads due to the machine, but some were either too small or had not yet bloomed. The reason the flowers are beheaded (as opposed to deadheaded) is basic: stop the nutritions from going to the head and lead all of it to the bulb. The bulbs are then harvested some time during the summer, teenagers peel off the outer layers and the bulbs will go up for sale.
