Tip-Toe Thru' The Tulips With Me...

Spring Break was last week and on Thursday we decided to go on a little road trip to the Tulip fields in Skagit County, WA. The weather was absolutely phenomenal!  {smile}

These were the only fields we stopped at, the lines of people trying to get in at other places were just way too long. Funny fact, I've never actually visited any of the Dutch fields growing up in Holland!


The mountainous backdrop was spectacular and as always I had to take some pics of all the barns...



Still from the olden days...
After some driving around we made our way up north and stopped for lunch in one of our favorite little villages: Edison. So much peace to be found in the mudflats. All we could hear were the birds twittering and the ducks 'snattering' across the mud in search of yummy tidbits...




What a lovely Spring Day it was!

  1. Wow, wat een mooie foto's weer! Lachen die tulpenvelden in de USA, dat verwacht je niet echt. En nee, ik zet ze hier ook nooit op de foto ;)

  2. Prachtfoto's !! Op IG dacht ik eerst, hé, Marjan is terug in Nederland op bezoek ! Wist niet dat tulpen daar bij jullie ook zo in massa gekweekt worden !
    Enne, meen je dat nu ? Vroeger nooit naar Keukenhof geweest ? Hihi... Grappig - ik denk dat zelfs elke Belg daar wel één keertje in z'n leven geweest is. Minimum.

  3. I love your funny fact (and photos). Stunning. My mother dragged a friend and I to Keukenhof when we were teenagers and sooooo uninterested. Now I am ashamed of that attitude!

  6. Prachtige foto's Marjan. Vreemd gezicht die tulpenvelden. Vorig jaar waren we te laat in de polder en waren de meeste velden al leeg. Dit jaar gaan we voor een nieuwe poging. Groetjes,
