Workers check tulip heads in a tulip field on April 27, 2012 near Schwaneberg, Germany. Spring weather is finally taking hold in Germany with temperatures expected to reach 28 degrees Celsius by the weekend. Since the tulips will be sold for their bulbs rather than their flowers, the workers need to check that the machine that bends the tulip heads over (a process that makes for better bulbs) was successful.
