It's our family tradition to visit the Skagit Tulip Festival each spring.
Every April for the past several years, I shared pictures of the daffodil and tulip fields, and also, the stunning displays of spring flowers at RoozenGaarde /Washington Bulb Company.
This year, the blooms were ready for show unusually early, a month early to be exact.
We traveled to the valley on the 27th of March.
I was excited to see something different - not only the blooming tulips, but also the tulips in wait.
There is a special charm in the buds preparing to open. They are not less exciting then the open flowers.
Brief information about the place:
Farm History: Washington Bulb Company was founded by Dutch emigrants William and Helen Roozen in 1955. Established with only 5 acres of land, the Roozen family now farms nearly 2,000 acres (including 1000 acres fo tulips, daffodils and irises) in addition to growing fresh-cut flowers under 15 acres of greenhouse space. RoozenGaarde was founded in 1985 to serve as the company’s retail division and display garden. The display garden has grown in size over the years and we now design and plant the display garden with 135+ flower varieties and 1.4 million bulbs during the months of autumn.
AgFARMation: RoozenGaarde/Washington Bulb Company is the largest grower of tulip, daffodil and iris bulbs in North America.
