Tulips of Washington

Hello all fellow bloggers.This weekI went to a magical place in Washington called ROOZENGAARDE Tulip Fields.Washington produces more tulips than anywhere else in the world yes even Holland but they only bloom in the month  of April.This winter has been extremely high in our rain department and and then we had a week in the 80's which hurt the crop of tulips so season was shorter.

My friend was going to go with me this year but couldn't get off work and due to the shortness of season all the fields had already been deadheaded so I went on the last day of their bloom Pretty spectacular for the last day.there are to many pics to narrate so I just let you see some of the two hundred pics I took.there are over 300 different kinds of tulips  grown here. Enjoy












these ones called Angelica looked like Peonies


lacey frilly ones





The dark purple are so dark they appear to look black










Well I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did like I said it was magical to see all the colors and varieties.Hope You all have a colorful and Joy ful week.Love Susie
