Town Hall, Tulipmania 2018The town buildings are as tall as 4 metres in height. The structures are brightly decorated with bright hues courtesy of different varieties of tulips.

Sleeping Giants

Sleeping giants, Tulipmania 2018, Gardens by the BayThe family of four giants consists of Dad, Mom and two children. Occasionally, you will find them opening their eyes as they stir from their slumber, only for them to fall back to sleep again.

They must have been sleeping in the fields for some time as tulips have grown in their hair.

Giant children, Tulipmania 2018In the case of the children, you’d be forgiven for thinking that they have been buried up to the necks in tulips instead.
