Tiptoe Through the Tulips!

You probably have heard of the song ” Tiptoe Through the Tulips” Well, over Easter, we did just that! We traveled to my nephew’s wedding and it happened to be at the time of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Mount Vernon, Washington.  I had never heard of this before so we decided to take it in while we were in the area.

What a gorgeous sight! All those tulip fields, with brilliant colors in a row, looked just like a rainbow! The day was sunny and clear so the colors were spectacular! Every turn drew an “Ooh! and Aah”!  While this is quite different from my normal posts, I thought I’d share with you the beautiful sights. Put this place on a list of “must see someday”!

The gardens I photographed are at RoozenGaarde. They were started by the Roozen family and now have more than 1,000 acres of field blooms. They maintain a 3 1/2 acre display garden with a quarter million spring-flowering bulbs. The pictures are of the display garden.

Enjoy!

Now, that was just a taste! You need to experience it in person someday!  I  was blown away by the beauty!

If you can make a trip there sometime, check out the website of Tulips. You can order tulip bulbs directly from them, too!

Please note that I am not compensated for this post in any way. I have been to Kuukenhoff Gardens in Holland, too. While this is not as big, it is easier to get to and still so beautiful! It is well worth the trip!

Thanks for stopping by and “tiptoeing through the tulips” with me!

  1. Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for sharing. You will be one of the features tomorrow at the Anything Blue Friday party at The Dedicated House. Pop on in tomorrow to check out your feature. Hope to see you again at the little blue soiree. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  2. Stunning! We’ve been to the Netherlands in tulip season and loved it. So glad to know about this location — adding it to the list! We are “collecting” states and have 12 more to go before we are in all fifty. Have never been to Washington and now we know what season to plan that trip!

    • Wow! All 50 states! How fun! Another great time of the year for Washington is late August/early September. Usually good weather at that time. My sister lives out there so we go late August and pick blackberries!

  3. This is beautiful. Wow! I love tulips. This would be fantastic to see. Thank you for linking up with Tips and Tricks.

  4. We were just there visiting dear friends! It was so beautiful and so reminiscent of Holland. We lived in Germany years ago and would drive over often.

    • Yes, it is very much like Holland only a bit smaller scale! Still just as beautiful!

  5. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us at Show-Licious Craft & Recipe Party! I hope you will join us again this Saturday at 8:00 am EST!
