Tulips in the Pacific Northwest (and pretty girls)

Flowers in Washington with a pretty girlMore flowers in WashingtonI am trying to to show a more humble side to myself and I guess it is true I had nothing to do with the beauty of the flowers in the Pacific Northwest, but right now I am struggling a little. I have very much enjoyed the bluebonnet season here in Texas because they truly are beautiful. That being said, it got a little bit wrecked for me after seeing the insanely beautiful pictures of the tulip fields in Washington state and also knowing those fields pale in comparison to our own beloved tulip fields in Flowers in Washington with anther pretty girlOregon–Woodburn in particular. It just does not do this field of flowers justice to look at the pictures. You kind of have to be there–one of those Grand Canyon/Crater Lake kinds of things where you give lip service to acknowledging the grandeur of it and kind of roll your eyes when no one is looking. Then you see the real thing, up close and personal and becomes very much a religious experience.

  1. Hey Lynn, There are several of these large tulip farms west of the Cascade range in Oregon and Washington. The one in the pictures is in Washington, but the best one, in our opinion, is the one just out of Salem, Oregon in a town called Woodburn. Truly amazing and it is even better in real life!
