RECONSTRUCTION #1, hexagonal flowerbeds, May 19, 2015
Next to the pond, 82 of the original hexagonal flowerbeds of the Floriade 1972 are reconstructed with 67.000 beheaded tulips in 6 different colours. The nursery Groot–Vriend in Lutjebroek, grew the tulips. During the course of the reconstruction, the flowers fade. On the opening day of the summer exhibition, the flowerbeds are refreshed with the latest still blooming tulips Daladier from A. Hogervost in Noordwijkerhout. Passers-by can make pictures in front of this colourful mosaic.
in collaboration with Groot-Vriend Lutjebroek and A. Hogervorst Noordwijkerhout
