Tulip Town

Tulip Town is a tulip farm located in the Skagit Valley just west of Mt. Vernon, Washington (north of Seattle). You can visit their site (here). Skagit Valley is a fertile farming valley that typically has field upon field in full bloom with tulips and daffodils this time of year. Last winter was an especially tough winter for this farming valley. The region experienced an exceptionally wet winter of rain that has continued into the spring. Many fields have been flooded and the spring floral blooms aren’t as robust as normal. Having said that, it is still beautiful with many spring tulips in bloom.

A couple of weeks ago in the middle of numerous days of rain, we had a warm sunny day and my wife and I decided to take advantage of the sunshine by visiting Tulip Town. We weren’t disappointed with the beauty of fields of tulips in full bloom and many other fields just starting to bloom. In all candor with or without the blooms, the valley is beautiful all by itself. I have attached ten captures from our time there. Enjoy!!

      I grew up in the midwest where farm fields where filled with corn and other vegetables. It is so cool to see a flat farm valley between dramatic hills filled with fields of flowers….this time of year tulips and daffodils. So beautiful!!

      There were many fields next to the blooming ones that were at the state you described. It’s just so dramatic to see fields of these in bloom!! Thanks for stopping by Dan!

    I love the tulips in the Skagit Valley. I took my mom once to the tulip festival. She was delighted with all the colours and gorgeous flowers. Your photos are wonderful.

      Thanks Darlene. Having been there you can appreciate how stunning it is. They have had a very wet winter (and it continues as we speak) and there were many fields that were flooded out, but that didn’t take away from the beauty of the fields in bloom. Thanks for stopping by!

    What beautiful photos! I love tulips, and I’ve always wanted to see the tulip fields in the Netherlands in full bloom. Tulip Town seems like a much more accessible destination! 🙂

      It sits in a beautiful valley with mountains to the east and the sound to the west. Being a river valley it is flat which compliments the fields of flowers! Thanks for the feedback and for stopping by!! Have a great rest of your week!

    What a lovely place to visit. I love your photographs and I also love tulips. I read about a national park in the states (can’t remember which one) that has, arguably, more tulips than Holland! Have you heard this at all?
