Every year for the entire month of April the Skagit Valley springs alive with tulip mania....thanks to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Hundreds of thousands of visitors from Washington, British Columbia, and beyond converge on the colorful fields to take in the sights of this lovely flower. You never know exactly when the tulips will begin to fully bloom, but luckily for me, many of the fields were blooming when I happened to be up in the region.
One of the most popular destinations is Tulip Town where you can stroll through the fields, browse local arts and crafts shows, and savor delicious foods. As for me, all I wanted to do was photograph the flowers! The sky was a bit overcast when I made my visit, but the sun made occasional appearances and showered its warmth upon the vast flowering fields.
