October: plant the bulbs!

In October the bulb producers plant their new bulbs. This picture was taken by the miller of the windmill in the Schermer polder, that we visit during our countryside tours. Thanks to these farmers, our guides can show you the beautiful flower fields in spring. We never know exactly when the fields will be in bloom. A lot depends on temperatures in winter and spring. Normally the last two weeks of April and the first of May should be perfect to shoot your iconic Dutch picture.
