Tulips and Trees: The Union. (Skagit Valley, WA. Part 4)

Petals and limbs, young and old, fragile and strong, light and dark, small and big, fine and rough, colorful and sublime, 'here & now vs forever', beauty and the beast... They are so different. Nevertheless, trees and flowers are united in a moving, touching show created by RoozenGaarde tulip growers.

  2. Just magnificant tulips and the trees make them look almost unreal. In my area many tulip varieties do not come back or if they do the color and size can be different. I just think of them as annuals now and enjoy them for the season.

  4. Hi Tatyana, incredible photos. I think my favorite is the shot of the perfect pink circle of blooms around the tree. Wonderful lines. Their gardens are just immaculate. Cheers, Jenni

  6. I've never been lucky enough to see so many tulips in person so thanks for all the photos you've been posting Tatyana. Just amazing. I really marvel at them growing up in the trees! or are they in pots tucked under the moss?? Whichever, it catches your eye because it's so unexpected.

  12. very interesting combination of crude, moss-grown branches and trunks and soft, moss-grown, colorful tulips. Thank you, Tatiana!

  13. Tatyana, capturing the trees with the tulips is pure genius. What an amazing time of year it must be there! Someday perhaps we'll get to see it. We have friends in Vancouver who drive down for it and have mentioned it but never sent a picture. (Probably afraid if we saw a photograph we'd be on their doorstep for the duration LOL.) Actually, that's a joke... they've invited us several times but they aren't photographers and that adage, a picture is worth a thousand words... well they would have saved themselves a lot of breath with a single picture. What you've captured in each of your posts about this festival is amazing!
