Whidbey Tulips

 We haven't made it to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival yet. We're waiting for a warmer, less muddy day, probably right after Easter. But we did make it to the Whidbey Island Reeder Tulip Fest.

Monday, April 11th was Jake's birthday. He came down from his home on San Juan Island to the Whidbey cabin for the weekend, and we met him there on Monday for his birthday. We took him out to a late breakfast and had a good visit before he took off back north. We prowled around for a while, visited with the cousins next door, and enjoyed our tulips before heading home ourselves. 

Turns out if was very good timing for our tulip display.

We were very happy to have made it to Whidbey for our tulip show. Some years we don't get the best time, as the cabin is booked by other family members. But the local neighbors get a show every day as they meet in groups to stroll by. We hear about it through the grapevine. 


  1. What wonderful tulips! They grow so easily for you. Here in Hawaii we just get cut flowers that wilt away so quickly.

  2. How pretty! So glad you got to see the Tulip show that you put so much work into! Well done!

  3. Very nice garden as usual I love the cabin too!

  4. It's truly beautiful. I'll be at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival on Easter Eve. But your garden and new header have made me hungry for more! :-)

  5. How very pretty! They are so colorful. I, too, like the cottage - it is very well maintained.

    Happy belated birthday to Jake.

  6. That's quite a nice tulip display of your own! My favourites are the deep purple ones. Our trip to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival remains one of our best travel memories.

  7. Your garden looks grand! Love those two-color orange and yellow "parrot?" tulips. Linda in Kansas

  8. Beautiful tulips! What a display!

  9. Thank you for sharing your awesome tulip display. I do miss seeing all the spring flowers.
