Local’s Night   10 comments

Yes.. two post in two days.  Crazy huh?  Well, this is more of my “normal post”.  Unlike my Ninja vs Pirate story that will just pop randomly here and there.  So.. on with my post! 🙂

Like clockwork, every April in the beautiful Skagit Valley we have the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.  We celebrate all the beautiful tulips, daffodils and iris that are grown.  People come from all over to have a chance to see the tulips, along with all the other events that happen through out the month.  Of course,with all the people visiting, comes a lot of traffic.  There are many locals who just cringe when April comes around.  And all the locals know, if you want to go out to see the tulips yourself… don’t go during the weekend!!  One of the local farms helps support that thought by having a local’s only night during a weeknight in the month of April.  It just happened to be this last Wednesday.

I made plans during the day to go with my friend David that evening, since my hubby still was battling a nasty cold.  We were a little nervous that it wasn’t going to happen due to a downpour of rain in the middle of the day.  But the skies cleared up by the time we were done with work and off to the fields we went.  We spent a solid amount of time there that evening and I was able to capture a some decent pictures.

Hope you enjoyed your quick trip through the tulips. 🙂  Have a great week.
