Washington State is the second world leader in tulip production, second only to Holland. Each year, Skagit Valley (a county in Washington) holds a festival to display their goods to florists and other tourists. In 2010, we ventured up to see the fields. These were taken at Roosengarde, for those who live in the area. If you ever are in the area in early spring, you really should go to this festival. It is breathtaking to see fields upon fields of flowers!
