Purple and Pink Dream

Today was THE DAY.



Do you remember my post Yellow Seas ? Following a pattern, I was supposed to call this post Red-Yellow-Pink-Purple Seas.


Three weeks ago, fields of daffodils looked like huge yellow seas. Tulips were not ready yet.

Today, 26th Skagit Valley Tulip Festival was in its best.



I'll leave red and yellow tulip fields for later.



Purple and pink were my favorite.



This Festival is a tourist destination in Washington State.




More than 1 million visitors...



Over 300 acres of daffodil and tulip fields...



The host city for the Tulip Festival is Mount Vernon. It is the hub for the Skagit county’s bulb growing industry.

Festival includes nurseries walks, art shows, air show, live music, etc., etc.


I hope you enjoy these images. As always, click on the pictures to make them larger. Then, click Back to return to this page.

  13. To see these tulip fields in full flower must be one of the natural gardening wonders of the world. The power of the massed colours is stunning.

  14. Wow, Tatyana! Lucky you to see these first-hand. I was just marveling today at all the nice tulip beds our village landscapers have put in, but they look puny next to this! Thanks for sharing them with us.

  21. What a beautiful thing. Thanks so much for sharing. I read somewhere that it takes something like 7 years for a tulip from seed to get big enough to flower.

  22. I can't decide which I like best, the red and yellow or the pink and purple. In my own garden I must prefer pink and purple, but the red and yellow certainly had a wow factor too!
