Tulips and Hyacinths and Daffodils, Oh My!

Posted by on Oct 19 2009 | Other

Every fall volunteers gather in the Eastman House barn to plant bulbs in preparation for the upcoming winter’s Dutch Connection!  This year we had a great turnout and can’t wait to see the bulbs come to life in 2010.

Inspired by a bulb order placed by Mr. Eastman over 100 years ago, this yearly offering of flowers in Feburary is a welcome respite from the Rochester winter. It features more than 2,000 tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, freesias, and amaryllis in bloom in the Eastman House conservatory.
