Skagit Valley Tulips

An April gift grows up the road a few hours in the Skagit Valley. The area is famous for it's tulip farms. There are other fun things to do in the area as well, but those tulips, oh my. They come in a vast array of colors and thousands of people make the journey to see them. The farms open up for viewing and vending. We have only made the trip once due to the crowds. Happily the best light for taking pictures is too early for most people to be out in large numbers. I will post a few more shots of the fields later as I'm heading out to work. Just wanted you to have a bright start to your day as well. This photo was scanned from a film shot so the sharpness isn't great.
