F is for Field Trips…and Flowers…and Fun. My Ladies of Leisure group (we don’t work and we don’t have small children’s schedules to work around) took off for a trip to Mount Vernon last week – home of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival which is held in April each year. Although there are numerous places to see field of flowers, the two main locations for tulips are Tulip Town and RoozenGaarde. Between the two, there are over one million spring bulbs. Both have large fields of flowers but Tulip Town has a small, fenced area in front with displays and new varieties whereas RoozenGaarde has large grassy areas edged by blooms where you can wander freely, take photos, or pose for photos in front of the flowers. In my opinion, RoozenGaarde is the better option if you only have time for one stop.
