Tulip Extravaganza. Skagit Valley, WA. Part 1

It's that time of the year again when tulips are blooming in the Skagit Valley, state of Washington. If you haven't been there yet and live close by, then don't wait! To skip crowds, go on weekdays if you can. This year, the RoozenGaarde display garden is unbelievably beautiful! I had a tough time leaving it.  The Roozen family business is the largest in the world in growing tulips, irises and daffodils.
The weather during our visit was cloudy and partially rainy, but it didn't spoil the impression a bit. Flowers were fresh and bright. Vibrant flowerbeds and tulip fields attracted us like a magnet. It was an absolutely mesmerizing, uplifting and inspiring show! If you want to see how it all looks on sunny days, please check my previous posts about this festival. They also have general information about the festival and RoozenGaarde on the Tulip Festival WEBSITE.

  1. This is so so pretty!!!! Tulips are my favourite flowers. I always put bulbs in containers in autumn to enjoy them in spring but this year the severe frost in february froze them all. Spring feels weird this year. So glad I see so many tulips all over in blogland. Thanks for sharing all this abundance of blooms with us.
    Bye,
    Marian

  2. This is just beautiful, wish I could have a disply without all of the precuations I have to take because of the squirrels and rabbits. I do it anyway, buying new tulips each year because they are so lovely.

  16. I love the newest hybrids the most - you would have a field day in the Keukenhof in Holland if you've never been there! They even have bluish/black tulips!
