Tulip Time in Mount Vernon, Washington

Heidi knows tulips are my favorite flower. On Monday, she drove Marshall and me up to a town in Skagit County, north of Seattle, to Mount Vernon, for their tulip festival. We treated ourselves to lunch at a wonderful restaurant/bakery called the Calico Cupboard. This cafe has the best bakery!

This is one of the many tulip farms in the area.

Scene inside one of the buildings. These cut tulips were gorgeous!

While many of the tulips had already been topped (flower blossom is cut off once it begins withering to allow vegetation from the leaves to return to the bulb), we still saw millions of beautiful tulips in gorgeous colors.

Marshall holding two topped tulips (He did not pick them and we didn't get to keep them.).

Marshall got his face painted. It was so cute!

I loved how they used these apple trees to mark off the parking lot.

I'm glad that you had a great time. Marshall is growing up really fast. I love the face painting. And how neat that Heidi found something new for all of you to do.
