Tulips

Ok, one more about the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.


Here are more pictures from one of the biggest tulip farm in Skagit County, Washington. Roozengaarde was established in 1985 by the Roozen family and the Washington Bulb Company, Inc. The Roozen family business of growing tulips, daffodils and irises is the largest in the world, covering Skagit Valley with more than 1200 acres of field blooms and 15 acres of greenhouses. The driving force behind Roozengaarde was Bernadette Roozen Miller, who passed away in 1996. Each fall, the 3 acre show garden is planted with over two hundred thousand spring-flowering bulbs, providing a gorgeous display of color during the early weeks of spring.
