Some tiptoed through the mud!
We kept our shoes clean...
and viewed the blooms from grassy fields nearby.
Our Sunday afternoon drive took us to the tulip fields of Skagit Valley, Washington...
about two hours south of here.
Acres and acres are awash in colour!
We passed by a sea of golden daffodils...
...and on to the fields of tulips.
Though the sun was shining...
the rainfall of the recent past was still quite evident.
We never deliberated long before deciding that we would stay outside of the fence...
where there was green grass.
The tulips were lovely...
and we could see them quite nicely without getting dirty.
And we had the best spot for people watching...
...as they slogged through the mud.
A few came with boots.
Most came with nice clean shoes that were soon caked in mud.
'it's spring when the world is puddle-wonderful' ~E.E. Cummings
All came with cameras.
"The earth laughs in flowers." ~E.E. Cummings
And we tiptoe through them.
And every spring we are amazed anew!
