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.
