Tulips everywhere!

The husband and I drove about 3 hours to Mount Vernon WA today. We missed the town's annual tulip festival, but got to see several fields of tulips. We spent the afternoon dogding showers and mud puddles. The flowers are farmed for their bulbs and most are exported to the Netherlands. The flowers are byproducts and usually are left to die after the bloom. These are some pics of the fields, with more to come soon from the Roozengaarte complex.
