Tulip Festival

The annual Skagit Tulip Festival is underway in the Pacific Northwest. Last Sunday (April 22, 2012) we drove up to snap a few pictures. The weather was just perfect and we were impressed with the flowers. Please click on the photos for the larger view. As always, we appreciate your comments and thank you for stopping by John's Island.



We found the random red among the yellow to be a curious fascination. A close-up is shown further below.
