Tulips come up in masse in fields and in show gardens in the Skagit Valley in April. More than a million visitors come to the valley during festival time. Dutch farmers came to the Valley in the 1940's. One of those farmers, William Roozen, started with 5 acres of land. His family had been farming tulips in Holland since the 1700's. The Roozen famiy now has 1200 acres of field tulips and a 3 acre show garden with more than 200,000 sprng flowing bulbs in the garden. It is one of our favorite places to go. We are including new pictures from this year and some of our favorite photos from years past.
