Tiptoeing Through the Tulips - #MtVernon, WA

Have you ever experienced the beauty of row after row of tulips in bloom? Here are photos from my recent visit to the fields at Tulip Town in Mount Vernon, Washington.
(Click on photos for a larger view.)








If the beauty of these blooms has inspired you to plant tulips of your own, you can order bulbs online. They will be shipped in autumn in time for planting. The variety is overwhelming.

We have tulip fields like that in The Isles of Scilly. It's a long way for you to come though.

Thank you for your kind comment on my art workshop in the Netherlands. Since that is my country of origin, I have seen tulip fields. If you ever get the opportunity and go across the pond, you've got to visit (between end of April-May) "Keukenhof,"not too far (25 miles)from Amsterdam, or half way between Amsterdam and the Hague.
But your walk in the woods 2 posts down is my kind of world to paint:)

Such beautiful photos! Thank you for your comment on my blog. I love tulips but can't grow them in my garden as the deer here love to eat them. I'd love to see a field full of them like this.

Thanks for visiting my blog. We had a great inaugural trip in our RV. We planned to be out a week and stretched it to two. We saw lots of traffic getting on the freeway and heading south on Sunday, probably people leaving the Tulip Festival on the last day. I've been out to see the flowers twice, but like to go early before all the crowds. - Margy

No, I have never seen rows of tulips like that. It looks magnificent. I didn't know they grew in Mount Vernon, Washington.

That looks really lovely. I remember fields like this from when I lived in Holland.

Gorgeous captures!

Absolutely gorgeous! I had no idea fields like this existed in the US. I thought you had to go to The Netherlands to see them.

Tulips are my mother's favorite. Her garden is filled with them. Your photos are lovely.

You really hit all the Spring highlights of the Pacific Northwest in your recent posts. Making me homesick! Those tulip fields are utterly amazing.,

Sharon Wagner said...

Glorious tulips! What explosive color. We're still waiting here...

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

My only problem with tulips is that they just do not last long enough. Oh, and they don't grow here in south Florida! Beautiful flower images!

I love tulips. Your photos capture the beauty of these colourful flowers so well. I would love to experience this one day.

Beautiful. I'd read about these tulips and tried to make this trip work along with one of our visits to Seattle. That didn't go according to plan. Later we went and saw some tulips at Woodburn, OR.
