Yellow Seas

On our way home from Canada, we made a loop and stopped in La Conner to check Skagit Valley Tulip Festival that runs from April 1st to April 30th. It was early for tulips and irises, but the daffodil fields were in their best.

Yellow color is not my favorite, but I love this sea of yellow.
It looks better when enlarged

Skagit County is located in the northwest portion of Washington State, USA. between Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, B.C. Canada. The majestic Cascade Mountains stand to the east, overlooking a fertile valley boasting a variety of agricultural crops. Running through the valley is the powerful Skagit River flowing westward toward the beautiful San Juan Islands. World famous tulip fields blanket the valley in the spring.Flocks of Canadian geese, snow geese and trumpeter swans can be seen here in the winter. Bald eagles soar overhead year round and great blue herons stand along the shorelines. I like this Skagit County description from http://www.skagitcounty.net/common/asp/default.asp?d=Home&c=General&p=about.htm

  4. Beautiful Tatyana. We've got a tulip farm out here too. I've never gone to see it in bloom before - I probably should.
    We like going up to the Skagit River to fish. Then after morning fishing I hit all of the wonderful little towns around there to do some antiquing. Beautiful country.

  5. Wow - amazing. I find the scale of it a bit overwhelming, but I'm just used to small fields. Stunning though!

  12. Hi Hermes! Thanks. I understand what you mean. It's like me - I never thought that state Washington was the main producer of apples in the U.S. I think the name of the area -Northwest - makes people to think about the NORTH.

    Hi Blossom! Thanks! Which color do you like more - yellow or cream?

    Hi Bangchik! Thank you. What is paddies?

    Hello Linda! If you go to that field, take pictures, will you?

    Emily, thanks! I agree, it's a lot!

    Heather, thanks! I missed Blotanical. Was able to look at it a couple of times after skiing.

    Lynn, I could smell the aroma when close to the flowers.

    Hi Jody! I'm glad I took these pictures of your favorite flowers. I bet you have lots of them in your garden!

    Hi Sweet Bay! What an interesting image of heaven! You made me smile!

    Hi Silvia! I''m glad you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

    Voldemar, как приятно среди отзывов увидеть твой! Я не очень люблю желтый цвет. Никогда не верила, что это цвет измены, как у нас говорят, но видимо, этот предрассудок все-таки как-то в подкорке остался. Однако же когда их так много, то очень красиво, хоть и желтенькие. Зааходи в гости!
