Flowers on parade

Twenty huge floats and 30 lavishly decorated cars follow a route from Noordwijk, a town west of Netherlands, to Haarlem, outside Amsterdam. Visitors throng to catch a glimpse of this colourful flower spectacle. Local organisations put on their thinking caps months before the parade, to come up with a great design, how to build and decorate it. The choice of flowers has also to be decided. Dahlias are a common choice as they are grown in large community gardens.I had heard so much about these floats and even read up about them, but nothing prepared me for the sight that met my eyes. I was blown away by the sheer genius of it all. Live music and costumed performance accompanies the floatsGet setThree days before the parade, there is frenzied activity as the floats will be “pierced”. Ha! Got you there, didn’t I? Pierced means to cover and decorate with bulb flowers. Hundreds of volunteers gather and get down to work piercing or pinning hyacinths, tulips, daffodils, dahlias and more to the floats.I am always interested in finding out the hows and whys of any celebration. So, I dropped in to the local library and did some research. I found that this began in the end of the 1940s, just after World War II. After the strife and terror of the war, there was a great need to lighten up and have a laugh. So, people began to plan a parade...a party so to spea... (The Hindu)

Austria's Clone Kings: Legal to Clone; Illegal to Flower

Cannabis College and the Hash, Marihuana & Hemp Museum in Amsterdam. The Embassy has a wonderful showroom, beautifully kitted out with hexagonal display cases, each with an individual cannabis plant thriving inside. Information screens attached to the cases provide detail about the featured strain, its growth characteristics, and the breeder that created it.In addition to the showroom, the Embassy has a neat little shop selling high-quality hemp products, staffed by a friendly, enthusiastic team who will happily guide you around the plants and explain anything you’d like to know. Head honcho (or should that be Chief Diplomat?) at the Hemp Embassy is Gregor Fritz, a warm and affable man who clearly maintains great relationships with his staff. On first impression, the Embassy is wonderful, but so far, not massively different from many other hemp shops and museums in Europe. But it soon becomes apparent that there’s another service provided via the Embassy—one which certainly isn’t available in Amsterdam, or in most other European countries for that matter.Vienna, Austria Clone CannabisIn a handful of outlets in Vienna and elsewhere in Austria, it’s actually possible to purchase live, growing cannabis seedlings and clones. Here at the Embassy, a menu discreetly laid out on the counter lists t... (Dope Magazine)
