You guys have heard me complain about how long this winter has been. A lot. I mean, we got more than two FEET of snow in the city this year. That just doesn’t happen. But it does mean excellent things for our bulb plants. They love a super cold winter!
On the way home from Canada, we stopped off in La Conner to check out the tulip fields.
Because the cold has been hanging on a little longer than normal, the fields weren’t in full force yet, but some of the manicured gardens were beautiful and the daffodil fields were still in their prime.
It was such a warm weekend, we were expecting the fields to be out and crazy, but I guess we needed a couple more of the warm days. Maybe next weekend is the weekend to hit them up!
I liked this garden shot though. The cherry blossoms are just finishing up in this garden, but you can still see them. I’m loving all the chartreuse and pink from most of our cherry trees right now.
The sunlight was so nice for capturing photos.
And I couldn’t get enough…I’m loving using the big camera!
Finally I asked someone to take my picture so I don’t bore my blog readers with pictures of flowers.
As we were heading back to town, we happened past one field that gets really good afternoon sun. By next weekend, there will be almost 15 MILES of these fields up in Skagit Valley. Beautiful!
