Photo Friday: Tulip Festival

The pictures we bring back from the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival (just north of Seattle) each April belie the reality of the experience. The truth is that the fields are a big muddy mess! It's tons of fun though, with activities for kids and a chance to pick up both reasonably priced cut flowers and bulbs of your favorite varieties to plant for next year.

What is Photo Friday?

  • Post a travel photo on your site. It can be about any topic, as long as it is G-rated.
  • The focus of the post should be on your photo.
  • You don't need to be a professional photographer (I'm not), but do showcase your best work, and make it big enough to see well!
  • It's nice to include a few sentences about the photo, but it is not required.
  • Link back here so that your readers can see all the other great Photo Friday posts.

        Beautiful photo! Tulips are magic - only wish they could last longer. (Hence the need for good photos!) ;-)

        Those flowers look beautiful. I would love to go there and seem them for real.
