Painting is just another way of keeping a diary ~Pablo Picasso

I was up in Seattle over the weekend, which gave me the opportunity to visit the largest tulip farming region in the Pacific Northwest, the Skagit Valley. The tulip farms center around the towns of LaConner and Mount Vernon, about an hour's drive north of Seattle. I had a short visit here last year in bad weather and my memory was that the tulip color in this area was especially vibrant. I felt that way again on this trip. The colors seemed almost unnaturally vivid. Be prepared for at least a week's worth of tulip photos!
