Saturday Snapshot - Tulips

I'm so ready for springtime! So, in an attempt to banish my late winter blahs, I'm posting a few photos from last year's Skagit Tulip Festival near Mt. Vernon and LaConner, Washington. (Click on the photos to enlarge them.) These photos were taken April 17, 2013. More info about the festival HERE. 






I couldn't resist including a photo of my daughter-in-law and granddaughter.

I love tulips, and you have captured them perfectly. Gorgeous granddaughter, too! Thanks for visiting my blog.

I couldn't believe how many tulips there were -- field after field in every color you can imagine. It was breath-taking and a fun outing for my D-I-L, granddaughter, and me.

It's the first day of autumn in Australia, but I still love tulips too. Such gorgeous colours. It looks a lovely family outing.

Imagine if you lived in Quebec where we have been snowed under since mid-November? Even though x-country skiing opens up contact with the season, it is starting to get a little long in the tooth here. Thx for the cheer!

Sandra, your photos are so beautiful! I need some of that sunshine right now. New Jersey is 17 degrees and we're supposed to get our 14th or 15th snow storm this coming weeks. Thanks for giving me hope. Have a great day!

I could spend hours out there photographing those tulips. Pity Washington state is so far away. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Look like you and I are on the same page. Needing a reminder that Spring really is "just around the corner". I shared a flower picture too.

Beautiful! I miss tulips so much. We had a lot of them when we lived in MA but can't grow them in FL.

A mixture of rain and snow is predicted here (Pacific Northwest) for Sunday, but I doubt if it will stick. Although I loved skiing when I was younger, I don't think I'd like to live in an area where there was a lot of snow.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Your area has been hard hit this winter, hasn't it? I hope you thaw out soon!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I'll bet there are lots of flowers starting to bloom in Charleston at this time of year. Then you have azaleas to look forward to, too!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I took dozens of photos, but I couldn't post them all.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I'll go check out your post right now!

I lived in South Florida for many years, and I missed having springtime bulbs. However, I did enjoy bougainvillea, bottle brush trees, tulip trees, bromeliads, and other gorgeous tropical plants growing in my yard.

Oh my! We ain't got nothin' like that here in Texas! LOL

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Maybe not, but you'll have bluebonnets soon!

Bea said...

Those are beautiful. :)

I am ready for spring also, sigh.
