Skagit Valley tulips

Tulips are what attract visitors to the Skagit Valley every April, and sometimes into May like this year. The tulip fields have generally reached full bloom. This week is the last one to appreciate the stunning view of large blocks of various colors. Don’t forget to stop by Dunbar Gardens!

    • Well sort of. We do have the largest bulb grower in the US here. Washington Bulb Co. was started by the Roozen family who were Dutch immigrants. They have over 400 acres of tulips. But the overall acreage has declined in the past few years since there are only two bulb growers now. The usual economic pressures of globalized agriculture have had an impact. But when the sun is shining we get a huge number of people from the metropolitan areas to the south- Seattle, Tacoma and the north- Vancouver, BC. converging on our little county roads!
