We have finally finished moving and arrived back at the ranch. Russell and Mary Lou (Rick’s parents) flew up with us for a visit. We went to the annual Tulip Festival in Mount Vernon (about 45 minutes down river) and toured the tulip fields.
They grow tulips here as a crop. I must say it is a lot prettier than seeing cotton in the fields.
The whole gang at one of the tulip displays. People come from all over – some as far away as Europe – to see the tulips.
Masses of tulips. The Skagit Valley is the largest grower of tulips in North America.
This scene reminds me of a postcard. It was a beautiful sunny day and we enjoyed the festival. The guys were not real enthusiastic about it all, but they did attend.
