I know some of you have been patiently waiting for the photos I promised. There were a few issues.
We spent Tuesday, our anniversary, in the Skagit Valley, under glorious blue skies, soaking in the beauty of the fields and the flowers and the mountains in the background. We then drove over the bridge and onto the island for an overnight at the Whidbey cabin. We spent Wednesday at the cabin. We returned home Wednesday evening.
Today we have spent the day working in Jill's yard and in our own. We have to use these sunny days constructively.
I had planned to download all on my photos onto our desktop, which I did, and then begin to edit and post. However, our computer picked up a nasty Spyware virus, and since our tech guy is too busy with his own new job right now, this afternoon Tom hauled the CPU off to the Geek Squad, at Best Buy, where after some days and hundreds of dollars we should be back in business again.
That leaves me to post using my laptop, which, while a sweet little thing, is pretty gutless when it comes to posting lots of high resolution photos. For some of you, that may be a blessing. There might be fewer photos.
We'll see. Here we go with Post # 1, RoozenGaarde Tulip Display Garden.
Hi. Here we are. It's late morning, after a two hour drive and a stop at Christianson's nursery, which I will show in a later post.
In the background you can see Mt Baker and a huge field of golden daffodils.
This is just outside the fence. As you can see some tulips are still in bud. The show will go on for quite a while. It is early this year, though, and this is the earliest we have even come.
Princess Irene tulips already in bloom in a sunny spot. At home ours are still emerging.
Well, that worked quite well! As you can see, we shared the garden with quite a few other folks, but nothing like it will be this weekend, after the warm sunny days we are having.
More to come!
