Tulip Time in the Skagit Valley

It is an annual pilgrimage for us. This year our days were filling up, and the weather has been awful, but we decided to set a date and take our chances. Look what we got!
 Here we are in one of the growing fields of Roozengaarde, one of the major bulb growers here. 









And this was just the beginning. Next we were off to the incredible Roozengaarde display gardens, and more growing fields.  

I have too many photos, so I will try to limit myself. At least there will be very little to read. 

This is outside the display garden, along the road, for all passersby to see. 









 So many beautiful combinations. 

































 In the distance you can see the bands of color of more growing fields. We trekked out there too. 






 A field of daffodils had just finished their show. 









 Purple and gold W, for all the Husky fans.
We spent about three hours here and in the fields. We bought some lunch here and enjoyed the gift shop as well.

Then we were off to Christianson's Nursery, also in the valley. More to come.

  6. For a little prairie boy who's only used to wheat fields , it's hard to get my head around tulip fields. With all the vivid colors they can make eye catching designs. I can see why you would not miss the tulip tour.
