Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

Skagit Valley is a picturesque farming community in northwestern Washington. In springtime all focus is on the magnificent daffodil and tulip fields. This year I arrived just in time for the tulip festival. Even the sunshine made an appearance for me. Come take a look at the spectacular variety of tulips that caught my eye as I walked through the Skagit Valley tulip fields...










































The festival continues through the month of April, so if you hurry, you can still visit this marvelous display of flowering tulips. Here's a link: Tulip Festival

Thank you so much for posting such a great assortment of photos. I have a whole bunch that I like, too, but hesitate to put too many on my regular blog. Guess I need an auxiliary blog like yours! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. And I appreciate that you thought of me on your visit. Rest assured if I ever get to San Ramone any time soon, I'll think of you, too!

Oh! This is fantastic! How I would love to be in your area to see this! Your photography is exquisite...and what a fabulous sky you had to enhance each shot! Wow! I love this. I see a tractor pulling a wagon for visitors. We rode on the same at the Flower Fields in Carlsbad, California (Giant Telecote Ranunculus). I have them posted on several of my latest posts! Those tulips are something special!
