US (CA): Springtime is tulip time in Modesto

Springtime is tulip season at Dutch Hollow Farms, a flower farm which originated in the garden at John Bos' mom's house. 

"I told my mom years ago her tulips were beautiful, and she said in her thick Dutch accent, 'Yes, why don't you grow them for cut flowers?' And I said, Ok," Bos said.

Today more than 160,000 tulip bulbs are planted on what used to be an old dairy farm.

This massive flower bed is more than just a business. It's an introduction to springtime.

"Tulips love, love, love, rain, water, and warmth. Then they explode," Bos says.

Dutch Hollow is an interactive farm where you pick the flowers, equipped with animals, too. It’s also a place to come learn about the tulip and the flower's origin.
