Tulip Farms

We just got back from western Washington where I hosted the Sonlight booth at the Christian Heritage Homeschool Conference. The event was Thursday evening, all day Friday, and until 4:15 Saturday. I had told my husband that I wanted to visit the bulb farms in Mount Vernon (north of Seattle) if daylight allowed that evening. It was snowing off and on… and just an hour before sunset… when we got to the farms, but I just loved seeing all the “lilies of the field” in their springtime “array”…

The first field we passed was daffodils…

We could see red, pink, and fuschia tulips in the distance…

We got a little closer to this field…

Red tulips with yellow ones in the distance…

These next pictures were taken from the front lawn of a nursery (which was closed that late in the evening). If it hadn’t been so cold and wet (and getting dark) I could have wandered around enjoying the flowers for an hour!





This inspires me to plant a bunch of bulbs next fall, doesn’t it you?

I love the early spring bulb flowers. I think because they are so vivid after months of winter drab… and because they don’t last long they are such a treat.
