Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

Fields of tulips in Skagit ValleyToday we went with our neighbours to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. The weather was wonderful - sunny, yet very windy (as it always seems to be, in that valley). Here are some photos from our visit.

The festival runs from April 1 - 30 this year. We were happy to finally get good (dry) weather on a weekend, before the festival was done. When it has been raining, the fields can be pretty muddy. Today they were dry, with very few puddles.

We enjoyed our visit afterwards to the town of La Conner, with its unique shops and galleries.

Hi Lily

AND I love the mosaic stones you bought at Superstore, what a great find. I agree about the service I'm sure.
