Avery Versus Tulips

It has been forever since my last post but I thought that this was worthy of sharing.  Welcome to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon.  This tulip farm has just begun to blossom and just opened their festival to the public.  I don't know how many different kinds of tulips were there, but it was overwhelmingly magnificent.

The view from the first lookout was incredible.  The rows and rows of blooming tulips lit up the field.  I couldn't believe how vast and colorful the tulips were.  While I enjoyed the farm, it was a little muddy due to the Oregon rains in the last few days.  My boots were (and still are) totally caked in dense, mushy, mud.  But that didn't stop me and my family from having a wonderful time and falling in love with the farm.

My favorite tulip of the day was the Fantasy/Parrot Tulip.  The color combinations in the flower were unbelievable and even better when seen in person.  The petals are so delicate and seem as though they were shaped by the winds.  Some of them were wilting a little, but even that did not detract from their whimsical beauty.  I wish I could have taken them home with me to plant in a windowbox.  But I will settle for the Mt Hood Muscari I bought for now.  Hopefully I'll update on its growth.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit this tulip farm or anything like it, please do.  After visiting, I am inspired to visit Holland and frolic in those fields too.
