It was a wonderful weekend!

Look at how gorgeous these tulips are!

Saturday our family drove up to the lovely Skagit Valley for the annual tulip Festival.

It started out a bit rainy and cloudy but gave into a beautiful day after all. We first attended the flight show and that was amazing. The stunt pilots were very talented men that did some crazy, very impressive things in the sky!I didn't include photo's of that in this post because I had so many great photos of the flowers to share. I hope you enjoy them!

Did you see those pretty fluffy white clouds?

I love days like that!

And the velvety red tulips lying beneath like a cozy blanket.

I love the way the rows and rows of the tulips look.
It was interesting how every once in a while there will be one tulip that is a totally different color. Sometimes I feel like that odd flower out. I just don't always fit in.
The flower and I were one-LoL-kindred spirits.
Reminds me of Grandma's quilt with all
the different colors and textures.
There were also many variety's of Daffodils too.
Daffodils are such cute flowers and bring back great memories for me!
Aren't these next tulips interesting?
I Adore the contrast...
There's that one random,
different colored flower again...
The next variety was called Ice Cream.
Who would have thought of naming a tulip that?
I love how they are short and full and don't even really look like a tulip at all.
This next pretty pink is a favorite of mine-so delicate.
The gardens and fields at Roozen Gaarde were absolutely gorgeous! The work it must take to accomplish this- just imagine...
I totally dig on topiary they remind me of
a Dr. Seuss book. How fun is that? I know!
I was not able to get as many photos of the entire garden because there were a lot of visitors that day.
Plus it is hard to really do it justice.
But on the other hand it is so spectacular you really almost can't take a bad photo!
So many lovely layers!
More flower patch work-Sooo Pretty!
If you go to their website to order bulbs
they have some great deals.
You can visit them at
It was a very good day and we had a wonderful time!
I hope you all enjoyed it too!

Have a nice week and...

May warm ray's of sunshine kiss your garden!
