NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW) – In Texas, it’s not spring till you see blue bonnets – but one family hopes to change that. Petra and Pieter Koeman are originally from the Netherlands. They moved to Pilot Point, an hour north of Dallas, just a couple of months ago. The Koeman’s know a thing or two about tulips. Their family is in the tulip bulb business for over 40-years in the Netherlands.
But it wasn’t just the tulips that brought them here. “When we were young, we looked at a television series Dallas,” says Peiter Koeman in English with a thick Dutch accent. “It inspired us to go to Texas. It was a dream,” he told CBS 11 News.
