Windmill and daffodils

This photo reminded me of the tulip festival we attended in 2016, in Skagit valley, Washington state.

Here are a few pictures from that April 2016

Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

Rows and rows of red tulips

There were so many varieties of tulips in so many colors.

          1. The climate knows… πŸ˜‰
            Good to have roses.
            I read somewhere that depending on the time of day the fragrance of the rose flower is different. So that is why some purfumes are expensive – to get the same consistantcy. πŸ™‚

              1. Just like with wine… different grapes produce different flavors. Some are pressed with the skins on and I think I read somewhere that some grapes have the skins removed before pressing… but don’t qoute me on that πŸ˜‰

                  1. Just to clarify (for my own benefit too…)
                    “Skin contact is another term for maceration, or the period during winemaking when the grape skins remain in contact with the juice. Reds and some rosΓ©s get their color from maceration. Most red wines are made by fermenting grapes with their skins for the entire period of alcoholic fermentation, though the juice can be separated earlier if the winemaker seeks lighter taste or body. RosΓ©s usually undergo less than 12 hours macerating on their skins before the juice is pressed off and fermentation is allowed to finish, though some can rest on their skins for up to a week.”
