Tulip Time, Part 1

 It was a beautiful day in the Skagit Valley, as you can see from my new header. The sky was blue, Mount Baker was glowing in the sun, and the tulips were showing off their most brilliant colors. 

Having not had a Tulip Festival last year because of Covid crowd restrictions we were most eager to get there this year. We ordered our reserved tickets for Monday, April 19th well ahead of time, hoping we would get good weather and a good bloom show. We got both!

I have LOTS of photos, I won't post them all, of course, and I will post in two or more parts. Few words are needed. Just sit back and enjoy the show. 

We'll start in the enclosed display garden. 







Even with limited access, there were more people here than we usually had, so getting photos without other folks in them was mostly impossible, but I did crop a lot out. 














Certain people are allowed in my photos. Tom likes to take close ups. 





Somebody always has to be different. 




There will be more to come. See you later.

  4. I love it when you and Djan take us with you for that splendid display. Almost overwhelming the amazing colors with rivers of color flowing through.
    Laughed out loud at that lone yellow volunteer.

  8. Absolutely gorgeous! The red ones under the shade of the tree are my favorite in photo #20. The contrast of dark and the splash of color is like a painting to me.

  9. Wow! What a gorgeous day and such incredibly floral scenes! Seeing your photos makes me want to order more frilly and two toned tulips from Brecks. However, planting them in my extremely rocky ground isn't as enticing.
