On Wednesday, we boarded the bus at 8:30 in the morning for the trip to Skagit Valley near Mt Vernon, WA, to see the tulips. We went to RoozenGaarde.
As we came through the entrance we were greeted by crowds of people and a windmill!
Barrels of tulips, sometimes mixed with hyacinths, sometimes just variegated.
The McCafferys seemed to enjoy the visit to the gardens.
Beds of tulips in all kinds of configurations and mixtures of colors.
And off in the distance, fields and fields of tulips.
It was a gorgeous day with blue sky overhead and puffy, white clouds gathering over the mountains in the distance.
Ruth Daugherty joined me in the far-reaches of the fields.
After prowling around in the fields for a while, we returned to marvel at the various varieties in the beds near the tent where they sell bulbs.
There I found Dick and Joan Brown enjoying the sunshine and waiting for the bus.
By this time my eyes were filled with beauty and my legs were weary from wandering around, so we boarded the bus to go for lunch and a ride by several more farms with fields of tulips stretching into the distance. All in all a wonderful day in the spring sunshine, enjoying the beauty of the tulips.
