Photos: Amsterdam tulips in bloom

It's tulip time in Amsterdam, where people have adored the flower for centuries. Every canal is decorated with planters of blooming beauties. The venerable Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam offers a display of wild and cultivated varieties. At the Flower Market by the Singel canal, you can buy 50 tulips for about $15. And in the U.S. on Sunday, it's safe to day, these colorful flowers will find a place in many a Mother's Day bouquet. -- Susan Spano
