Skagit Valley, Washington Daffodil Photo

This week’s #FriFotos theme is SPRING.  Each spring, Skagit Valley – about an hour or so north of Seattle – attracts thousands of visitors to their flower growing region in the state of Washington.  Skagit Valley is most noted for being a large tulip and daffodil growing producer.

Alexa – yes, Skagit is loaded with daffodils and tulip fields in the spring. Unfortunately, we were about a week too early for the big tulip bloom last year.

Lovely! I always go to see the tulips, but always miss out on the daffodils. Looks like they deserve a visit as well. I love the yellows – so bright.
