Skagit Valley Tulip Festival
Unofficially, the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is from April 1-30, 2011 but this doesn’t guarantee the tulips will be in bloom during these dates. Seattle has had a cool and wet spring with all flowers and trees weeks behind last years pace. So on April 4th, we headed north not expecting to see any tulips I knew the daffodils were in bloom so it wouldn’t be a total bust, but its not the daffodil fest!
It was pouring rain…all day. It was grey and dreary but it actually made the reds of the limited number of tulips shine. Add the fact there were NO people there meant I could photograph tulips without being rushed! I came away with about 2 decent photos but that’s 2 more than I thought I’d get:)
