We've been to see the tulips





But we only found daffodils - and oh the daffodils we found. The tulip fields are just beginning to show color, so another few weeks and they will be in full bloom. The daffodils were almost gone by - we were glad that we went down when we did.




The fields were almost glowing in the afternoon sunshine . . .


Some white daffodils planted in a yard . . .




The signs all say to stay on the paths and out of the flower fields - guess these poor folk never learned to read . . .



A charming farm - can you imagine waking up to all this beauty?













The only tulips in bloom were those planted in yards or in the landscaping of the farms that have tours. It is more protected and warm here, so they bloom sooner . . .











It was a lovely day - and beautiful flowers . . .

Oh, so beautiful - hoping things will be slow enough that we can get a show when we get down there next month! Our show here hasn't started yet, so just waiting to get out there and take a look!

Our tulips are very slow emerging this year, also. I love the picture of the barn behind the daffodils. So glad you had such a lovely day, and that you shared it with us.

What beautiful pictures! We still have crocuses, no daffodils and definitely no tulips yet! It was even snowing again today!

It's hard to imagine those vast fields of flowers. Thanks for showing them.

Oh, I love the flowers up there! My hubby and I used to go spend a long weekend in LaConner and drive around looking at the flowers, and the old barns and whatever fabric store I could find.

Oh wow, no I cannot imagine waking up to behold such splendor! That is an amazing place and that must be fun to visit there. Oh that kind of ires me to see those people not staying on the path though. Glad you only shot them with the camera though (ha!) ~Lili
