    Ahh, tulips, the big thing north of Seattle… in about 3 or 4 months. This lovely little yellow gem is one my sister would love. I prefer the multicolors myself. Is the yellow one a ‘throwback’? It is just as lovely as the others though, and makes a nice accent in the picture.

    Happy New Year to all! Daniel, a hearty congratulations to you on your accomplishments with BPotD. I feel very fortunate to be amongst your fan group and look forward to more wonderful
    botany enlightenment. The article in the Vancouver Sun is glowing, so happy I was able to view it … and so much more there, too! Take care ~

    I’m going to be visiting friends in Seattle the first weekend in May – will there still be tulips that late? (Hopefully they’ll still be some!)

    what a wonderful Photograph. It is quite cold here today and this brings thoughts of Spring coming. I really like selective focus pictures.
    This is lovely.
    Thank you,

    The Tulip Festival in the Skagit Valley north of Seattle is in its 25th year in 2008 and runs from April 1st through 30th.
    Roozengaarde is probably the best known Tulip business with a beautiful 3 acre show garden that supplements their 1,200 acres of fields where they grow daffodils, crocus, and tulips.

    At Tulip Town you can walk out into fields of tulips in flower, whereas the Roozengarde display portion is smaller plantings enclosed by hedges and interspersed with shrubs and trees. Possibly April-flowering cultivars have become dominant there so as to have coordinated mass displays during a festival.
