An hour north of Seattle lies the fertile Skagit Valley known for its fields of tulips and daffodils.
We were fortunate to be at the fields yesterday, on a weekday without the crowds, and before the rain was scheduled to appear. The daffodils were full and glorious in bloom. The tulips are still waking up but many wonderful colors were on display.
The fields above were at Roozengaarde, the largest producer of tulip bulbs in the country. Their display gardens show the magic that occurs when you put the best combinations together.
