Summary of article in Billed Bladet #21, 2014.
Written by our reporter in the countryside Trine Larsen.

Who went to Gavn Manor, where a new tulip named after our Marie was to be presented and that's a very official ceremony!
Present were Marie as well as Helle Reedtz-Thott, a close friend of both M&F and M&J.
So far there are only 1.000 tulips in the world carrying the name "Princess Marie".
When Marie first saw the new tulip she exclaimed: "How beautiful it is".

This is actually the third tulip named after Danish royals, the first being Queen Ingrid from 1955, the second being Crown Princess Mary from 2009.

Helle Reedtz-Thott explained: "By cristening the tulip Princess Marie, we continue a centuries old Dutch tradition about christening the brith of each new flower that has been approved and accepted in the official list at Holland's Royal Onion Producers Association".

Marie was presented with a speciment of the new flower on a pillow handed to her by a young women dressd in Dutch national attire. Marie sprinkled the tulip with water and said: "May the seeding of you each autumn remind of the need for being visionary. May your long wither sleep be a testament to your patience. May your blossoming each spring inspire joy and renewal. - I christen you Princess Marie".
Then Mary signed an official document that will be send to the Netherlands to be formally registered.

Unsurprisingly it's a Dutchman who has produced the new tulip.

While there Marie also met Otto Reedtz-Thott.

I love work, it absolutely fascinates me. I can sit for hours looking at people working.

And we all know that Baron and Baroness Reedtz-Thott are the owners of Gavn

Where charity and love are, God is there.
