Skagit Valley Tulips – By Evelyn Williams

How about a Springtime trip to Washington’s Skagit Valley Tulip Festival?  These are Evie’s photos, taken April 18, 2010 at the Roozengaarde Display Garden in Mt Vernon, Washington.  Believe it or not, these pictures were taken on the last day of the Tulip Festival; therefore the tulips were even more glorious in prior days.

From its website: Roozengaarde was established in 1985 by the Roozen family and Washington Bulb Company, Inc.  The Roozen family business of growing Tulips, Daffodils and Irises is the largest in the world, covering Skagit Valley with more than 1000 acres of field blooms and 16 acres of greenhouses. Each fall, the 3 acre show garden is planted with around three hundred thousand spring-flowering bulbs, providing a gorgeous display of color during the early weeks of spring. Roozengaarde is an official Sponsor of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. We welcome hundreds of thousands of visitors, from all over the country and from around the world, to our garden and store during the festival. Thousands of full-color bulb catalogs are distributed each year. Bulbs are shipped each fall to thousands of homes across the United States and Canada. Fresh-cut flowers are available for purchase or for shipment anywhere in the United States year-round. All of our bulbs and flowers are purchased directly from Washington Bulb Co., Inc.
