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
