The other day I had the "Travel Chanel" on TV. They were showing the tulips in Holland. They were lovely. However, I thought that most people don't realize that we grow tulips up in the Skagit Valley just north of the Seattle area. In a town called Mt. Vernon they have a month long (April) festival to honor the tulip. I decided to share this information with my blog friends. I don't think Washington is associated with the tulip. The SBA and I did not go this year. We try to get up there every other year. It is breath taking! It is truly a rainbow on the ground. I hope you enjoy these photos from last year's festival! Thanks to all who read my blog! I really appreciate you very much!!! Have a great week-end!
