The start of April usually signals the beginning of the Mount Vernon Tulip Festival. However, Mother Natures thought otherwise. This year, she brought months of unusually cold, wet weather. As a result, few tulips are in bloom and festival activities are on hold. Flower fields

Driving out to our lot on Anacortes, however, we passed a few fields of daffodils, which were very dramatic. 

I can’t wait until the tulips bloom. We plan on riding our bikes through the area to see the many fields of not only tulips, but irises, daffodils, narcissus, and other spring bulbs. Click here to learn more about the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival and see pictures.  Flower fields2
