Life Is A Journey... Not A Guided Tour
Every April, the county where in live in Washington state celebrates the advent of spring with a Tulip Festival. It runs the entire month, but the flowers come up and bloom in their own time. This year they were on the early side, with the large fields in full bloom just before the official start of the festival on April 1.

Gorgeous then and now . . .
I love to see these pictures. Good job, Susan. Bob
It’s on my to do list over the next week. Just got home and almost missed it. That would make me so sad! Loved this post last year, and this year it inspires me. 🙂
Thanks so much. Just an FYI, the flowers are at peak this week.
I know! Hoping I can make it happen.
I know! Just hoping I can make it work.
My favorites are the ones in the tree, and also the yellow with red tops. They look like reverse flames! What an incredible display.
Thanks Eli. I have so many favorites. Too many! Actually made it over to the flowers last week and hope to make my next post more photos.
