These are some of my natural history ramblings, both literary and afoot, the result of a search for whatever there is to be found, including the native orchids and wildflowers of the beautiful state in which we live.

Tulips and Daffodils
On April 17th we visited the tulip and daffodil fields of the Skagit Valley. This is usually the peak of the annual bulb festival, but this year the fields were almost all finished, due to an early and warm spring. We spent most of our time as a result at the Roozengaarde display gardens photographing the flowers there. A few fields beyond the display gardens were still blooming and it was possible to walk to them, but we could find no other fields with any flowers.
