Terry Huffer at Mill Creek, Washington’s YMCA plans the best trips for seniors. Yesterday we went to the Tulip Festival in Washington’s Skagit Valley.
RoozenGaarde has been on my bucket list for over a decade. It is a photographer’s dream.
We all picked up a catalog so that we could hopefully identify the tulip wonders we photographed.
The garden’s signature is a windmill.
Fortunately, we went during the week when it is easier to take photos than on the weekends when the crowds are enormous and the traffic is horrendous.
The variety of tulips took my breath away.
The blend tulips was exquisite.
In the summer, I love to plant a variety of red, white and blue flowers.
My only disappointment was that the gift shop offered a limited selection of unusual tulips to plant in my own garden.
Early blooms arrive in March.
I appreciated the benches throughout the property where I could rest and enjoy the view.
As you can see, RoozenGaarde is a photographer’s dream.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my memories of a lovely, lovely morning.
