Tale of the Tulip Farm by Market Friday

#MarketFriday began as a way to reach out across the globe and learn about different cultures through their markets, especially local markets and farmers' markets, even grocery stores. Over time, it began branching out from shopping to a real cultural affair. It highlights our differences and points out how much we are really alike, a melting pot of customs and traditions. We all have rituals, festivals, and food that are ours alone, among languages that separate and bind us together. We all have unwritten rules for social behavior. Being familiar with all of these things allows for an increased tolerance between us, being educated about them. This month alone, the world has celebrated Ramadan, Passover, Easter, and this weekend, Orthodox Easter. People had posted about these celebrations and I have learned so much about all of you - it has been an amazing experience. I can only hope that learning about each other can help us work together for a peaceful world.

Last week, #MarketFriday brought you wooden shoes. I know you probably were scratching your head, wondering what I was doing with those wooden shoes, slightly broken in. I use mine for gardening, If you didn't get a pair for today, run back to this post and select a pair! Or just pick one from below. We are going to a tulip farm to walk among the beauty of the season. Burnside Farms is a tulip farm in a rural part of Virginia, a fairly easy reach from where I live. Have you ever been to a tulip farm?

Over 100 pairs of wooden shoes to choose from. You too can klomp around in them! Here you go, pick any pair that will fit, and make sure to wear a thick pair of socks. Your shoes should not be tight. The heel of my foot should have enough room to stick my thumb between it and the back of the shoe. I have worn wooden shoes for many years. Despite how they look, they are very comfortable. I wear mine in the garden and around my yard. My daughter wears hers to the grocery store. She grew up with them and feels the Dutchie in her when she slips them on her feet.

Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) Join me as we share our markets across the globe. I always look forward to seeing what you send me! It is amazing to see the different markets and cultures of our friends here on Hive.

*

This is *Burnside Farms 11008 Kettle Run Rd, Nokesville, VA 20181. Tulips as far as I can see. The price for weekday admission is $14.00 for children over 3 and $19.00 for adults. You get 5 free stems with your admission, 3 for children. Weekend admission is $16.00 for children, $21.00 for adults.


IMG_4628 1.JPG


They have this ticket called a passport. It is $70.00 for the season, but, you have free admission any day or every day, plus 5 free stems every time you go. As an aside, this also gets you into the farm when they have the fields of sunflowers. Now, there are places that are free and they grow them, but, you have to go look for them, which is half the fun, but, this came along with the passport, so who am I to pass on a good deal? Have I told you that I have vases and vases of free tulips all over the house? It is literally #alwaysaflower here!


IMG_99701.JPG


I have never seen them chastise anyone for picking and not purchasing it, They are just too nice that way. It is a family-owned business and they like what they do. After the tulips and daffodils, they do sunflowers, then later in the year, pumpkins and a maze, and then Christmas trees. They all work together and go out of their way to make it a pleasant experience.


IMG_4612 1.JPG


What a life! To be carried around and doted on. The shame of it is that we don't appreciate it when we have it. We even fight for the right to be independent. What is wrong with us? We didn't know we had it so good!


IMG_9574 (1).JPG


There are acres and acres of tulips, two hundred different varieties. I have seen some this year that I didn't know existed. It is fun to find something unique to you. I pulled a couple of bulbs to plant in my garden. The good thing about these bulbs is that they are tried and true. You know that they are good bulbs and performed well. I like the idea of shopping for them here. I can see what I am getting. Bonus!


IMG_97861.JPG


There are some sections with all shades of yellow or red or a particular color. Then they have mixed colors and styles. I like them both and like them both. I am more of a mixed color palette, a little on the colorful side. The order is nice too, but not for my flowers! Bring on the color~


IMG_9960 (1).JPG


The farmer drove a tractor with two trailers in the back, hauling little kids and adults around to the different sections. I think a few of the kids never got off of it. It was a wonderful day, steeped in the laughter of children and the beauty of nature.


IMG_0291.JPG


Did you know that tulips originally came from Asia, not Holland? The most beautiful tulip garden I have ever seen was in Holland. It was called the Keukenhof and I have never seen anything as amazing as it, ever. Have you ever been to the Keukenhof?


IMG_9539 (1).JPG


Even though I claim to like an eclectic mix of color, there is something eye-catching about the colors in number. I guess as long as it is a flower, there is a place in my heart for it.


IMG_9805.JPG


As an aside, Happy Earth Day! The theme for Earth Day 2022 is Invest In Our Planet – a call for governments, businesses, and individuals to invest in a better future for the planet.


IMG_9643 (1).JPG


I got both daffodils and tulips this day. I was told not to mix them in the same vase. I didn't know that the affodils have a scent that will ruin your tulips. Who knew? Not me!.

Please leave the link to your post here so it can easily be found by others. It helps you and me to have them in one place. Where else can you take such a quick trip around the globe? Thank you so much for joining us!! ❤


IMG_4608 1.JPG


There were bikes to ride and benches to sit nad enjoy the view. I have been a couple of times now, trying to get as many tulip days in as possible.How can you not love the sunny tulip?


IMG_0400.JPG


As always, there must be flowers to color my world. I just want to say that I am honored that so many end their post with a flower, to color their world. That truly touches my heart. #alwaysaflower


IMG_47111.JPG


Once you are finished photographing and picking the tulips you want, make your way to the check out tent where there are table set up. Wrap your flowers in the paper provided and write how many tulips and how many bults. Each are $1.00 each, after your five free ones. Step right up to the cashier and they will take good care of you.

Thanks for coming along with me to pick a few tulips and enjoy the view. It was a spectacular day or three and I can breathe normally now that I have had my flower fix. I hope you had a good time and don't forget to return your wooden shoes if you borrowed some. Thank you!


IMG_9675 1.JPG


And just like that, this post is done. I hope you had a good time and learned a little something new. As always, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit, and just remember, #MarketFriday loves you! Thank you for supporting the challenge! Have a most fabulous day! Cheers!!

It sounds crazy but I think it's the scent that it ruins... they were pretty adamant about it so I have to believe them but now I have to believe you so I'm going to be looking it up.

Thank you lovely. ❤

I've never heard of that but I can't have tulips in the ground or containers, darn rabbit and deer, so daffs for us (they are highly poisonous so the animals are smart enough to be leary of them.) tho there are some variety of tulips that I find the scent SO intoxicating, like the heady Christmas scent of paper whites.

Sadly I didn't have time to do a #Marketfriday today ah well , next week.

Some have an intoxicating scent!! It is true and even though hyacinths are overpowering, wafting through the yard, it is a truly lovely scent. I have rabbits breeding in my garden beds, for real!

Deer are here but only as a run-through, they don't stay. There was actually a bear this spring, although that is highly unusual. This close to the city, but, there is much-wooded area in and around DC.

No worries about #MarketFriday! I am always appreciative of all the ones you do!!! Thank you!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Daffodils do secrete a sap when they are cut and it can shorten the vase life of other blooms.

There you go ... beware of severed daffodils. I suppose another way to look at it is that they speed up decomposition and production of soil. It is vase that is problem.

From now on they will get their own vase:)

The same here, although I do have a lot of perennials popping up, and their little offspring. I actually had to pull some daylilies and iris this year and give them out throughout the neighborhood. I do it every year now as they grow bigger and multiply like crazy.

I am not complaining though. I look forward to seeing what comes up with your seeds. Mine are starting to show!!

Wooden shoes are a Dutch tradition, which actually is very practical for over there with gardening.

That's really beautiful. I like the multi-colored rows of tulips. Those are especially pretty.

With the stems, are you allowed to dig up the bulbs as well?

0

I like the multi-colored rows also. They are gorgeous. With the stems, you can dig up the bulb as well. However, if you want the bulb, it is $1.00 for each. If you pull it up and don't want it, there is a bin to toss them in for replanting.

I personally like getting the bulbs there, a tried and true kind of thing. I know what they are going to look like and if they are a good bulb. Win-win. I need to run over to your place and see how Holland was. I was out of range for 4 days. Really puts you behind!

Wooden shoes? Does it hurt when you wear it for long? This is my first time of seeing it, here the ones they call rubber shoes pains the feet when you wear it for long especially when it is tight.

I love the view of this tulip farm, thanks for sharing such amazing photos.

They are made from these trees: European willow, yellow poplar, or tulip poplar. These woods are all hard and water-resistant, which makes the shoes very practical in Holland, (they are Dutch shoes), especially with their weather. I use mine for gardening and perhaps my feet are used to them because they don't hurt my feet. But, I don't wear them all day. One of my girls wears them a lot~!

The rubber shoes hurt my feet, although the Crocs brand does not. I think they are overpriced, but, I guess you can't put a price on comfort. (I can though!)

The tulip farm is lovely!!! So colorful too~!!

The wooden shoes are from the Netherlands, but, they are very useful in climates that have a lot of rain. :)

Your market Friday post today is truly an adventure for me. I don't think a farm basically meant for growing flowers exist in this part of the world where I am. Truly educative and impactful.

I am so glad you liked it! Farm in your part of the world doesn't have tulips for sure, as they need some cold weather. Believe it or not, Kenya and Zimbabwe are the leading flower exporters in Africa. South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, and Zambia are also major producers, and a few African countries export a much smaller volume.

I believe Kenya alone has 110 Farms or Greenhouses.

Daffodils do secrete a sap when they are cut and it can shorten the vase life of other blooms. If you put the daffodils in a separate vase for a while, it secretes the slimy sap and after a while, you can mix them. I believe
it is the same for ranunculus as well.

I do love going to the tulip farm and have had such a good time this year, picking out some flowers and bulbs to put in my garden, I got some really unique ones. I liked being able to see what they look like!

Thanks so much for stopping by and dropping your link!

Good lord that's a lot of tulips! How awesome!

I can't imagine someone deciding to pick a flower like that and not pay for it. I know my children know better.

It's a shame that I don't get down in that area anymore (I used to drive down to the DC area weekly). That'd be a fun place to visit.

I know!!! It is about 40 minutes west (with traffic) from downtown. I have a butcher out that way and how I found it. There are still farms out here.

Isn't that a lot of tulips??? It has been so fun to stroll about and enjoy the wafting scent, everywhere you turn. Very light, not at all overpowering. I got some more bulbs this morning and it is fun to take some of the bulbs with the flowers... you know, tried and true. I know what is coming up next year and I know that they are good bulbs. No surprises!

It is a shame you don't get down this way anymore. It was a weekly ritual that you hated loved so much, that you found another job. LOL There is so much to do here and there and on the entire eastern seaboard, it is easy to see why we put up with the traffic.

It is a really fun place to visit. Next year! ;)

I hope you are having fun at the beach! What a great day you picked!!!! Perfect!!!!

Wow, that is really impressive! I noticed the other day that he daffodils are finally coming out in the woods behind our house. It is just a small clump, but it is always nice to see them. No flowers yet, just some nice green stalks sticking up. These shots are beautiful. What an awesome place. Makes me think I need to take that drive over to the West side of Michigan sometime soon.

Oh!!!! I would be so jelly if you went there! That is the ultimate in beauty! And a working windmill too. The only one in the US. I loved living in Holland and seeing/going into all the working windmills. They actually have a function, which I actually didn't realize until I was there. :)

Theirs runs from May 7- May 15

If it isn't far? Go!!!! You won't regret it. Thanks for dropping by!

Wooden shoes very comfortable once you get used to wearing them, had a pair or two when young...

Never seen tulip fields what a treat, absorbing waves of colour, what is the perfume like with so many in bloom?

Happy Earth Day something to celebrate with respect it deserves.

I love my wooden shoes! I still use them and one of my girls wears them here a lot. I agree, once you get used to them, they are comfortable. Great for gardening and yardwork!

The tulip fields are always amazing, the perfume is intoxicating, Joan! @joanstewart There are daffodils as well as hyacinths. Heightened senses. They bloom for about a month and then the sunflowers start taking over. Hopefully, I will remember to take some sunflower fields this year. Last year, there were many, but, not one did I get!

Earth does deserve her own day. I planted a tree in her honor. It was a loblolly pine tree (they are native here) and also a Rose of Sharon. One practical and one pretty. :)

Thank you for stopping by, I feel so left behind, I was out for days and just jumped back in the fire.

Thanks for the LUV!

Feet warm and dry, made your leg muscles work along with good posture.

Walking fields must be an amazing experience, we have commercial sunflowers and cosmos in the wild.

Did not plant yesterday, locally everyone is cleaning up after floods, assisting with letting people know where they are able to obtain water, yes too much, now too little 😅

Have a wonderful day!

Flower Farms like this is not unusual, however, I am always excited to see that many flowers together. Even in my own garden. It is a fun place to go to and the bulbs grow well here. They need some cool weather to bring out the best in them.

I am happy you like them. Thank you for dropping your link!

Thank you for taking the time to read the post and for dropping your link!

There are some sections with all shades of yellow or red or a particular color. Then they have mixed colors and styles. I like them both

I also love how the flowers were arranged, although I've never seen one before.
I'm sure that they would have a lovely scent.

For this week's market Friday by @dswigle

Here is the link to my participation.

I am so easily swayed by which one I love best. The mixed seem happiest. I love flower farms like this. Tulips are a popular farm and so are sunflowers, but, not until July or August.

They definitely had a lovely scent, wafting all through the farm.

Thank you for stopping by to read the post and for dropping the link!

How did you like the tulips? :) The wooden shoes were there at the farm so people could keep their feet dry and not muddy. It had just rained.

Thank you for dropping the link. I really enjoy reading everyone's posts. Have a great weekend!

Sunflowers are my favorites, but tulips are in my top five, for sure! If I ever go to a field like those, I'd have to have tons of money, to buy a bunch!!!

Here's my entry for this week, a bit off time but, you know, UTC, enjoy! Another day, another Ice Cream

Happy Earth Day!

Oh well the Passport it is then. I would get as many as possible for a few days and see if I couldnt sell some along the road in front of my place. With a little luck, I might be able to grow that 70 bucks 😎

Indeed it was a happy Earth Day! I think I'll pass on making the pictures because even though the passport was $70 I feel like I am worth at least that much for my happiness and quality of life. As you know, my editing skills are not that great so I would be a fail. LOL thank you for stopping by and leaving your words. I hope you have an incredible weekend and drive safe side of you head down to Virginia.

I see tulips really are a passion of yours! These lovely flowers are worth it. The Tulip Farm, the subscription, and all the activities there make me envy you (a little, very little!), I would love to work in the tulip field too.

Unfortunately, tulips are also a bit ephemeral, their life does not last more than a month...

Because I had neither time nor inspiration, I took inspiration from your post and put some tulips myself. Spring in the Botanical Garden

I do understand that about tulips. It's one of the reasons that I don't have a million of them in my yard. Their life is too short and so I enjoy a few different ones no, but for the most part I stick to things that have a long-lasting life. I can enjoy the beauty going to the Tulip farm and taking pictures. I guess it's not so much my love for them but more that they are one of those unreachable beauties. It will never last long enough for me to be happy. Birthday to last long enough for me to photograph them. I do love the Botanical Gardens and so I think that this will be an enjoyable visit as I go along with you. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend as you are getting ready for Easter. Today you are going to color your eggs if you have not already done so. I look forward to seeing that in a post sometime. You know how we love sharing your life. If I don't catch up with you later just know that I am wishing you a happy Easter to you and the entire family!

#MarketFriday loves you!

That's right, they are too short-lived but enough to delight our eyes and awaken our memories, like you and Holland or me and the botanical garden in Iasi. Tulips are a drop of beauty in this world to which, fortunately, we have access.

Easter preparations are a feature of our family. A lot of work! Magda almost goes out of her mind and wants everything...repairs, cleaning, changing furniture. I'm tired as hell. We finished work today around 5 pm, rest a bit, and then go to church. From tomorrow comes the well-deserved rest.

Thanks so much for the wishes, and thanks so much for the friendship.
Wishing you a peaceful and joyful weekend!

They are simply one of the prettiest aren't they? They're pretty hard to beat but I will say that they don't last nearly long enough for me. Which is why I need to take photographs of them. I am glad you like them and I appreciate you dropping your link. Have a most amazing weekend!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Oh how much I would love to take my family on a tulip picking adventure - complete with equally dutch experience of bicycle ride. What a wonderful place this must be. As far as your woodens shoes go .... I wish I could find myself another pair. I had one years ago and, as you so, unimaginably comfortable. In fact one of my most comfortable and favourite pairs ever. It was also way before platform shoes became a thing and their wooden sole was a platform and a half but so easy to walk in.

A wonderful week to you my sweet tulip loving and colourfully caring Denise!

Isn't that funny about the wooden shoes? It is true, though! I loved mine and they are still worn by the family, having had to get pairs as their feet grew. I use mine, even now and I truly think they are comfortable. One day, I will get a really colorful pair, I always have gone for the plain wooden ones. :))

Today was the last day for the farm and Monday morning, they will plant the sunflowers for later in the season! The flowers will continue!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I was off for a bit and now it is hard to sit at the computer when there is so much to do. :) I hope you and all the Buckaroos are doing fabulous!

How is that baby sheep you are caring for?
