The tulips grown in Skagit Valley do not bloom according to a precise calendar and schedule predetermined by humans. Instead, the tulips bloom according to Mother Nature -- their schedule depends on the weather, particularly the weather in late winter/early spring.
We will publish photos here showing the current status of the tulips and daffodils grown here in Skagit Valley -- Washington Bulb Company, Inc./RoozenGaarde plants the fields and the garden RoozenGaarde while Tulip Town plants the field and displays at Tulip Town. For more information on what is grown in the fields, go to www.tulips.com/bloommap
This photo shows a field of tulips on Beaver Marsh Road; you might remember we published a field photo Feb 6 with snow; this is the same field on Feb. 14. As is often the case in the Pacific Northwest at the end of winter/beginning of spring, weather can change dramatically in a short amount of time.
