Skagit Valley Daffodils
The Skagit Valley, about an hour south of us, is home to numerous Dutch bulb growers. We try to get down twice every spring, the first time to see the daffodil fields in bloom and the second to see the tulip fields. This year we made it down on April 2nd to see the daffodils, very early for them to be not only at their peak but past their prime as we found them. The tulips were just beginning and we took some pictures of those fields as well. Here's what we found.
Finished wandering the roads and seeing the fields we went for a little while to Roozengaarde's, the largest of the bulb growers, and to their display gardens. The displays were still far short of what they will be in a few weeks, but took pictures anyway in the time that we had and made plans to go back in a few weeks.
