Tiptoe through the Tulips

The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival brings visitors from around the world.  Massive field full of daffodils, followed by ribbons of color and the sea of tulips takes over the valley.  Having grown up in Washington I’ve seen the downsizing of the fields as more and more fields were lost to the sod/turf business or just left vacant.  The center strip between the highways used to be filled with wild daffodils when I was a kid but now just a few holdovers have survived.  Still this is a beautiful sight to see. Every year we all await the news that the daffodils and then tulips are in bloom and make the trip up to Mt. Vernon.
