Sunflower Rally - Extra attention for sunflower
Tuesday 4 July 2017
On 4th July, 8 classic cars (Citroën Deux-Chevaux ) made a photogenic tour from Het Rijk van de Keizer in in Amsterdam to sunflower grower Timo Steenwijk in Abbenes (Haarlemmermeer).
A select group of editors of well-known magazines and some leading bloggers (invited by Bloemenbureau Holland in collaboration with Royal FloraHolland), participated in this fantastic tour. The cars were decorated with sunflowers, offered by Bloembinderij van der Post from Hillegom. During the tour, several pitstops were made: at the first stop the participants learned how to make a sunflower arrangement, the second stop was at a ‘tableau vivant (live painting) made by the Wunderkammer. The third and last stop was at flower grower Steenwijk.
For this special occasion, sunflower seeds were made available by Evanthia. This resulted in a beautiful field of sunflowers at the finish of the rally. In the middle of this field a rectangular space was made free where a long, covered table was ready for an extensive lunch in the open air.
The rally is recorded in an aftermovie and a photo album
