Looks like some imposters snuck into the tulip fields, huh? Believe it or not, these are actually another species of tulip, and you’ll see many unexpected forms of this beautiful flower when you visit the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.
I’m always surprised to talk to Whatcom County residents who tell me they’ve never been to the Festival. People come from all over to witness these bright fields blooming at their peak, and if you live in Bellingham, Ferndale or Lynden, the drive isn’t far at all . . . so don’t miss this special celebration of spring!
