This is and isn't a fake view. Entirely out of season these tulips are in bloom in autumn in our southern climes.
Months of prep using refigeration and light control resulted in this display. The effort is appreciated. The business, down south, sells all sorts of flowering bulbs.
 Bulbs are not at home in Newcastle's climate.

They are pretty, even if helped along by odd means.

Here in May we have a big tulip festival- it's a legacy of the Second World War as thanks from the Netherlands for liberation; they started sending bulbs to us and have continued to do so. A well known photographer was one of the founders of the whole idea of a festival and it's carried on ever since.
