Last weekend we made out annual pilgrimage to the tulip fields north of Seattle. To be honest this year was a bit of bunfight – the weather was glorious and as most of the fields had already been topped due to the early spring, it seemed like the whole of Seattle was standing round the edges of the few remaining uncut fields (note carefully cropped photos below).
But there’s still something incredibly joyous about the patchwork fields of colour and if you live in the Pacific Northwest I do highly recommend a trip out there (though not this weekend, the fields are already empty).

Is anyone working on an ‘April’ photo? I’m going to get the gallery up next week, though I still need to figure out my contribution.
