I had some fun, making abstract art with some of the designs formed by the mixed colors.

If you have a chance, it is quite the sight to see drive up to see these fields while they are in full bloom.I went up to Mt Vernon in Skagit County to see if the Tulips were beginning to bloom. Tulips are a major agricultural product for this part of Washington. This area grows three-quarters of the tulip bulbs produced in the United States. The rich organic soil of the Skagit plain is good for their growth. I found fields stretching as far as the eye could see with wonderful colors. Reds, purples, pinks stretched in long rows. It was lightly raining while I was there which created perfect light for photography. I found some wonderful specimens to capture. You can see some more at
