Let’s Go Visit the Daffodils!

At least virtually!  It was a year ago that we went to see the daffodils in bloom in Skagit Valley, the first time ever, though I’ve lived in Washington my whole life!

We made the journey 60 miles north of Seattle to Roozengaarde, which according to their website,  “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.”

During the last part of March the yellow beauties are on display while tulips are the stars of April.

It was wonderful traipsing through the fields – on the designated pathways of course –

and visiting the charming town of La Conner afterwards for lunch and shopping.

The virtual tour will have to do this year. The display gardens at Roozengaarde are closed as are all other nonessential businesses due to the nasty coronavirus.

We do our part to flatten the curve.

Stay safe.

  1. Beautiful. Ours down here in SW Colorado are just staring to bloom. We live at 7000 Ft. so things are a little slower here.

  2. We have some on the south side of our house and the sun must warm them enough. The flip side of the high desert is that the sun is really intense without humidy to disperse it.

  3. Terrific virtual tour – and it’s comforting to know that this beauty will be with us long after we are allowed back out to enjoy them!

    • Thanks John! This is as close as I’ll get to the daffodil fields this year but lots of other beautiful flowers await us when the virus is defeated.⚘🌹🌻

  4. Of all the times I’ve been to the Skagit Valley, I only knew of the tulip fields. These daffodil fields are amazing! The images of LaConner bring back many memories of weekends as well as a week here and there spent wandering its streets. Thanks for a bit of brightness while sheltering in place.
