Photo gallery: Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

Have you seen the tulips yet? If not, head up there soon. As of Tuesday, the fields were in glorious full bloom, but they won’t last forever. (And don’t let gray skies deter you, the gentle light makes for some lovely photos.)

A friend told me recently that she’d never been to see the tulips in the 10 years she’s lived here. That couldn’t stand, so we planned a trip. It ended up being two trips. We stopped on a sunny Sunday at Tulip Town. Then we went back on a overcast Tuesday to explore RoozenGaarde with my 3-year-old. Both days were gorgeous. It’s impossible to visit the tulips without taking photos, and we took a ton.

We’ve gathered together our favorites, along with some reader photos, into a photo gallery.

If you haven’t visited the festival yet, check out our insider tips in an earlier story here.

Have your own tulip photos? We’d love to see them in our reader galleries.
