A weekend, last April, we visited the Tulip Festival in Skagit valley. It was a few hours drive from Seattle, which we enjoyed, it being a nice sunny day. The Tulip Festival is held each year in April, when the flowers are in their full bloom and people come to see these wonderful displays.
An ambiance is created which gives an impression that the visitors are in Holland, complete with a decorative wind mill. The flowers are planted in a similar manner to the Tulip fields in Holland. Even before one reaches the actual gardens, we are able to see the festive display of long rows of colorful flowers.
The entrance is bedecked by numerous varieties of Tulips, Narcissi (a variety of Daffodils ) and many other colors and types of Daffodils. I love the white narcissus so I took a lot of pictures there. The arrangements were made to cater to the exceptionally large crowds. There were area for eating with long queues of people and portable toilets, which were very much in demand.
Though the weather had turned rainy, we had a wonderful time. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
I am writing to express my opinion, share my experiences and to maybe provide some insight. My blog is addressing women at 50 ( but men are welcome to read my posts) ,their issues and the questions that come up at this stage in life. I don’t aim to teach, but to learn together.
