Acres of tulips are blooming at Holland America Flower Gardens at 1066 S. Pekin Road, south of Woodland. Visitors can enjoy the display garden, or pick their own flowers in an adjoining tulip patch at a cost of 50 cents per stem. The gardens opened for the season last week and will close on Mother’s Day, May 9.
Tuesday was a perfect day to visit for McKenzie Grauer, 2, above, who ran through the tulips as her mother, Brandie Grauer, followed. Generations of locals have visited the farm since it was established in 1980 by Dutch immigrants Benno and Klazina Dobbe.
