ALLURE - September 2020
I joined Instagram while visiting Holland at its most Instagrammable time: during the six weeks each year that the country becomes a rainbow checkerboard of tulip fields. Here are things I now know about these highly-photographable flowers. (I will impart my new understanding of bikes and canals at a later date.) 1. They are one of the only flowers that keeps growing — up to an inch or more — after you cut them. 2. They can hold their entire weight in water. 3. They have up to seven times more DNA than humans.
