Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

I visited a different type of garden this weekend.  No, not really a Koi Garden type garden, but a grand garden, just the same.  The type of garden that you might take a helicopter to see completely…. 

The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is that type of garden (show) (  It goes on every year for the month of April in Mount Vernon and the surrounding areas.  There are fields and fields of colorful Tulips.  It is really quite impressive.  Now Tulips are not the type of flowers that you might normally find in a Koi Garden but colorful they definitely are!  Here are some photos.  Enjoy!!!

 This festival is based on working farms.  These are businesses that sell all these Tulips during the month.  In fact, most of the Tulips have already been harvested.  Therefore put off that helicopter tour 'til next year...

Fotoartbyme, thanks for the compliment. The lens was the old Nikon standby, the 55mm f/2.8 Micro manual focus
