Netherlands: Auction processes 125,000 sunflowers for 'Van Gogh Museum'

Busy days at flower auction FloraHolland in Honselersdijk. They're processing 125,000 sunflowers at the moment for the opening of the new entrance to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, this weekend.

They are creating a large sunflower labyrinth at Museumplein, specially for this occasion. Visitors will search for the new entrance through the labyrinth. The sunflowers are referring to a couple of paintings by Vincent van Gogh.

"The flower arranging marathon @FloraHolland runs smoothly! Still 100,000 to go," tweeted Zuidkoop yesterday.

An employee of FloraHolland says it's a gigantic task, which she never has seen before at the flower auction. There are 42 trucks required to transport all the flowers to Amsterdam.

Auction Employees are asked to help out as volunteers. A part of the yield from this project will go to Ride for the Roses.
