LISSE…..CITY OF TULIP FIELDS.
Due to wars of Charles the bold and 80 years’ war, population of Lisse was suffering From poverty as their main lively hood was based on agriculture and harvesting of Peat. In middle age Lisse was a very small town and had only 50 homes. Now, people of Lisse and their country, NETHERLANDS are the world’s biggest exporters and grower of Tulips.Tulips came to Europe from Ottoman Empire.Today, Lisse is famous for its beautiful flower fields and flower bulbs that are exported around the world.Lisse is one of the Dutch towns that grew on top of an old beach dike and has a long history. Keukenhof Park is spread on an area of 79 acres of land & as per an estimate 70 million flowers bulbs are planted every year.Beside Tulip,Keukenhof also produces other kind of flowers such as daffodils,lilies,Roses and hyacinths.

Tulips are one of the first few plants to bloom in the spring—when temperatures are just beginning to upward jab and snow nevertheless sometimes falls.A flower can’t blossom except sunshine, and man can’t stay except love.” Flowers heal me. Tulips make me happy.A flower cannot blossom barring sunshine, and man cannot remain besides love.”
