These days we are enjoying spring here in Pacific North West with beautiful flowers around. And this week for Cee’s Fun Foto challenge I would like to share the close ups of the tulips recently captured at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

Tulip Festival

Last weekend we visited the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. This is a spring Tulip Festival near Mt. Vernon and is held annually, April 1 to April 30. This festival claims to be Washington’s largest, with over one million visitors each year.

We drove for about 1.5 hours to the festival venue to catch a glimpse of the wonderful tulips. There are many fields in the area and we visited RoozenGaarde. The place gets crowded later in the afternoon so we reached there early. The day was cloudy and slightly windy.

There were many wonderful colors of tulips with beautiful color combinations. We clicked lots of pictures and I found it difficult to select which ones to post as the tulips looked lovely in all. Hope you enjoy the virtual tour presented here.
