Tuesday, March 22, we managed to get a way for a few hours in the afternoon and evening and went down to the Skagit Valley to see the daffodils, the tulips, which were just starting to bloom, and the Snow Geese. The weather was not great but it was good to be out. After stopping in various areas along the roads we stopped at on the tulip farms in the area, but it was only a few minutes from closing and we did not want to pay the entrance fee for those few minutes. We took a few pictures from the parking lot and then went on for something to eat. I do not know why the tulips at the farm were so much further along than the others, but assume it was some kind of forcing that brought them out so early and in such abundance.
