A day of tulips near La Conner, Washington

Snapshot Saturday is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.

After leaving Birch Bay, Don and I drove south through La Conner, Washington hoping to find a tulip field in bloom. We were worried about the weather because the reports said it would rain, even with the possibility of a thunderstorm. We totally lucked out. The weather was sunny, though a bit cold and windy and the tulips were in bloom. Oh boy, were they in bloom. Check out a few of our photos. They don't do justice to gorgeous colors and the whole experience.

This artist was setting up his easel just as we were parking the car. After making our way around the whole field we returned to our car and couldn't believe his progress on the painting. Amazing.
All of the photos (except one) were taken by my husband, Don Bennett. The only exception is the photo of him, taken by me. All rights reserved.


  1. How beautiful! That's what spring should look like!

  2. Beautiful photos! It's hard not to take 100's of pics, isn't it?!?

    1. That is for sure! My camera ran out of batteries which is just as well so we had to rely on Don's big Pentax which takes way better photos anyway.

  3. That's so incredible - I would love to visit! Cheers from Carole's Chatter

  4. wow!!! beautiful is an under statement

  5. How fantastic that looks! I've seen displays (big displays of tulips in festivals and things), but never anything on that scale. How wonderful.

  6. My daughter-in-law and I attended the Tulip Festival a couple of years ago and we were both blown away by the fields of flowers. Neither of us had ever seen anything like it! Your photos are gorgeous.

  7. All those colours are stunning. And on such a big scale.

  8. That would be amazing to see in person. The closest I have seen to that would be a paddock full of sunflowers.

  9. I really need to make a plan and get to your area in the Spring. I would be in heaven to be among so many gorgeous tulips. Thank you so much for your photos!
