This spectacular true-color image, offered by Customaps, shows the blooming tulip fields in The Netherlands. While there are a few different bulb-growing regions in the Netherlands, the most well-known area lies in the small village of Lisse, roughly 30 miles (48 km) southwest of Amsterdam. It is located between the towns of Haarlem in the province of Noord-Holland (North Holland) and Sassenheim, just north of Leiden, in the province of Zuid-Holland (South Holland).
Every March, as the first signs of spring emerge, the fields just outside Amsterdam transform from sandy patches into carpets of lime green sprouts, as shown in this high resolution satellite image. By the time the season is in full swing, the area is swathed in red, pink, purple, orange and yellow blooms.
