Spring!

Man, I keep pushing the time-envelope with these. Sorry! I promise I'll do better!

Anyway, one of my favorite signs of spring is the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Skagit Valley is about an hour north of my house in Seattle, and they grow a surprisingly large percentage of the the tulip, daffodil, and iris bulbs used around North America. If you live in the US or Canada and plant bulbs it's very possible that those bulbs come from the Skagit Valley! The tulips haven't really got going much yet (this was a brutal winter, and it seems to be kind of a late spring) so this is from a couple of years ago.

I just love this picture. It's almost surreal, isn't it?

If you're interested in seeing more pictures of the tulip festival I've got some posted here

Tulips are my favorite flower, and that's one of the most beautiful shots I've seen.
Thanks! I love tulips too; and I think this might be my favorite picture from that day!
That's amazing, almost more like a painting than a photograph.
I think it's something about the light. But I just love how that one shot came out!
gorgeous!
Thanks!
That's spectacular. They look almost edible. A field of stripy sugar-flowers?
It makes me think of the Wizard of Oz!
That is a wonderful picture!
Thanks! I think it's my favorite from the whole day!
That's simply stunning. Thanks for sharing!
There's something magical about a field of flowers, isn't there?
That is absolutely spectacular! Breathtaking! I'd love to see them in person someday.
