For me Day 1 means my first tulip festival photo shoot of the year.
And no, there are no tulips quite yet. But the daffodils have started to bloom! Here is the Bloom Map to see where they are.
Last two years, the daffodils were almost done by now. But this has been an unusually wet, cold and dreary winter.
Here are two daffodil images from this morning.
We did espy one lone tulip…
And a few snow geese.
Picture takin’ in Skagit Valley is way beyond cool!
I offer guided Photo Tours of Tulip Festival, here is the link with more info
For anyone interested in more of a wilderness experience, we also do North Cascades Hiking and Photo Tours and for anyone interested in photographing the Milky Way, Night Sky Photo Tours.
