This week we got to mix two things we love -- flying and flowers.
|997 wings over the fertile Skagit Valley in Washington.|
Skies were overcast and gray, but farm fields were green and the daffodils bright yellow.
Skagit Valley in northwestern Washington State is well known for their tulip farms. But before those multi-coloured tulips arrive, bright yellow daffodils reign. The flowers are grown for their bulbs rather than their blooms, but while the bulbs mature beneath the rich soil of the Skagit River delta, locals and visitors get to enjoy the flowers in all their glory.
Have you ever been to a flower growing region? Isn't it great fun to see whole fields lined with blooms? -- Margy
