The early bird catches the worm, or in this case witnesses first-hand the �buzz of the blooms�, as beautiful plants and flowers are bought and sold.Sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery as you head out of Amsterdam to Aalsmeer and the 518000 metre squared auction house. Join the hustle and bustle as 19 million flowers and 2 million plants are bought and sold every day through 13 time zones clocks. Enjoy a birds-eye view from your gallery vantage point where you can watch the online auction screens. Thousands of flowers are displayed and then dispatched to more than 10 countries. For those of you who aren�t such flora followers, the sheer logistics and size of the operation is an education and work of art in itself. As forklift trucks pivot and perform, ferrying flowers in and redistributing them out and onwards by land, sea and air.Make sure you bring your camera to capture the colours and creative blooms, whilst you soak up the amazing aromatic scents that fill the air.
