Last April I shared some of the astounding beauty of spring flowers. I feel that there is nothing more refreshing than spending time with nature. The joy of new life given to us in flowers is truly a gift anytime of the year but especially after the long winter.
Let’s visually go to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in the state of Washington. Each year more than 1 million visitors come to experience over 300 acres of brightly colored tulips!
Here is just one of the fields of glorious colors with the Cascade Mountains in the background! Absolutely breathtaking!

Who is behind the tulips at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival?
(Interesting information from Skagit Valley Web Site)
The Roozen family business of growing Tulips, Daffodils and Irises is the largest in the world, covering Skagit Valley in the State of Washington with more than 1200 acres of field blooms and 15 acres of greenhouses. William Roozen emigrated from Holland in 1947 with years of experience in the bulb industry.
The Roozen family’s hard work ethic spans at least six generations. The family first began raising tulips in Holland in the mid-1700’s.
