One of the great things about living in Bellingham is the close proximity to lots of great things to see and do.
The Skagit Valley tulip fields are a short drive south, a drive down Chuckanut Drive to get there makes for a great trip. The tulips have finally arrived in the Skagit Valley, it has been a bit of a cold spring so the tulips have been a bit slow in blooming this year.
There is plenty of color in the valley, and lots of fields just starting to show color, so there is still at least another week to be able to see a great show of whole field covered in color. The 3 acre display garden at Roozengaarde is just awesome as usual.
Enjoy the colorful display and Chris's great description of it.
