The power of flowers to bring joy can never be underestimated.

Last Saturday, in partnership with iBulb and Anthos, Sun Valley brought 100,000 tulips to Union Square in downtown San Francisco to celebrate the inaugural American Tulip Day. This effort was spearheaded by Dutch bulb exporters to promote tulips in the United States. Modeled on a similar tradition in the Netherlands, the public is invited to come pick their own tulips from a huge garden for free.

At sunrise, a group of Dutch flower farmers, local Dutch flower fans and team members from Sun Valley gathered at Union Square to pull off an incredible effort.  By 11 AM, this team of about 25 people had placed 100,000 tulips into a perfectly designed pattern, around the Dewey Monument.

Backs were sore, hands were chapped, but spirits were very high as what seemed like an unattainable goal was achieved through hard work and cooperation.
