It doesn’t get more magical than this!  The gardens of Roozengaarde in Skagit Valley, Washington.  I’m definitely going to be ordering some bulbs from them in the future – check out their website and peruse their gallery images.  It’s pretty spectacular, what a magical place. 

I need to credit my Aunt and Uncle for these images – they are lucky enough to live nearby and walk the gardens every season.  My uncle’s words to describe the gardens and the beautiful people responsible for its creation were, “They are painters, and their paints happen to be tulips and flowers.”  He also added, “Van Gogh would have camped out here each Spring”.  I completely agree!  You know you’re in a special place when Buddhist Monks take selfies.
