Thank you, Jeff. Such intensive agriculture is commonplace in some areas of NZ and produces attractive landscapes, but in other areas, the wilderness is prevails. Here they almost meet.

I love the area.

Hi Berend,

Red in a green-blue landscape is rather attractive and different. But it is the Dutch who are the masters of painting a landscape with brilliant colours - in the bulb growing areas!
