Snowbirds of the Skagit Valley

Last week I visited the daffodil fields of the Skagit Valley and got to see the snowbirds too! Thousands of snowbirds including snow geese from Russia’s Wrangel Island and trumpeter swans from Canada and Alaska migrate south along the Pacific Flyway to spend the… Continue Reading “Snowbirds of the Skagit Valley”

Daffodils of the Skagit Valley

On the sunniest day of the last week of winter I made the trek to the Skagit Valley and found the fields at Roozengaarde brilliant with daffodils. I excused my husband so he wouldn’t have to endure the waiting while I wandered around taking… Continue Reading “Daffodils of the Skagit Valley”

Surprised by Snow

Last week spring was here – maybe even summer – with blue skies, sunshine, and temperatures reaching 60 degrees. But this morning I woke to big, beautiful, sloppy snowflakes falling – winter’s last hurrah I guess. I love the snow, but there’s a time… Continue Reading “Surprised by Snow”

Let’s Go Visit the Tulip Fields!

There’ll be no Tulip Festival this year and you already know why!  But that doesn’t prevent us from traveling back in time to last year’s festival in Washington’s Skagit Valley, where fortunately I took enough pictures at Roozengaarde to have plenty more to share… Continue Reading “Let’s Go Visit the Tulip Fields!”

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… Continue Reading “Let’s Go Visit the Daffodils!”

I was completely dazzled at the Tulip Festival this week and thought I’d share a few more pictures I took at Roozengaarde Farms. According to their website, “William Roozen emigrated from Holland in 1947 with years of experience in the bulb industry and started… Continue Reading “Dazzled by the Tulips at Roozengaarde”

Tis the Season for Tulips

Yes indeed.  The Tulip Festival in the Skagit Valley is in full swing and the fields were an explosion of color yesterday and we were happy to visit under mostly sunny skies without rain or mud in this so very rainy month of April.… Continue Reading “Tis the Season for Tulips”

A Walk through Fairhaven and Western Washington University

Call me sentimental. But last week’s road trip to Bellingham was a walk back in time. It started when we headed north from Seattle,  passing through the daffodils of the beautiful Skagit Valley. (Tulips are up next in the Valley and that needs another… Continue Reading “A Walk through Fairhaven and Western Washington University”

More Daffodils – I couldn’t resist

Back by popular demand, I couldn’t resist posting a few more pictures of the wonderful daffodils of the Skagit Valley.  And why not?  I found row, upon row of the happy yellow flowers next to dirt roads meant for walking, at Roozengarden. For Cee’s… Continue Reading “More Daffodils – I couldn’t resist”

A Road Trip and Daffodils

There’s nothing better than a road trip and after a long winter we were overdue. So we headed north to Bellingham, my old college town near the Canadian border, and one of our favorite places. The drive was wonderful, especially as we stopped by… Continue Reading “A Road Trip and Daffodils”
