Rainy Day in a Tulip Field

The tulips are slow to bloom this year in Washington’s Skagit Valley due to the unseasonably cool weather. I hope to make it up north to see them when they do.

But last year we stopped by the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Oregon, on the first day of a road trip to California.

It was a very rainy day.

But still beautiful.

Six soggy photos for Six Word Saturday.

And Cee’s FOTD.

  1. Rain or shine, the tulips are very beautiful! ❀️☺️

  2. Thank you for the gorgeous photo essay! I love those from such typical Willamette Valley spring days. We all love those blooming flower fields in the sun….and viewing and photographing are of course much easier sans rain gear. But an interesting opinion from a photographer of landscapes and seascapes in where there are even more cloud cover/precip days than the PNW. New England! He felt that the camera finds colors more dramatic, shapes more delineated, subjects more balanced, and perspective more pronounced on gray days. Your beautifully evocative photos of Wooden Shoe’s fields fit that perfectly!

    • Interesting! It was really pouring the day we stopped by so I was disappointed at the time. But in hindsight, perhaps the tulips are more vivid against the dismal background!

  3. That’s a must-see place when armed with a camera. Great shots, Susanne.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Having grown up in Holland, Michigan, your photos stirred memories of Tulip Time parades with klompen dancing girls in “Dutch” costumes, pigs in a blanket, and visits to Uncle Vern’s tulip farm.
