Tiptoe Through the Tulip Festival
Topic: Field Trip

After living here for 34 years we finally had a year when the weather, the festival and our schedules made a favorable conjunction that allowed us to go to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon. It wasn't warm but we came prepared with jackets and the sun actually shined enough to stave off the worst of the wind. No rain, either, so we were not slogging through muddy paths.

So many beautiful colors of tulips, in various sizes and styles. A few beds were planted with mixed bulbs so they can be harvested and sold that way. But most are in separate beds by color and variety, making a stunning display across the landscape.

This working farm is primarily for propagating bulbs for mail-order sales. Opening for the public to ramble about is a profitable sideline.

Without too much comment, here are my favorite pictures from our tour.














I believe I'll go back again someday - hopefully, not another 34 years!
