Washington Tulip Fest 2012

 

Yes my dears it’s that time of year again, when we go and visit the spectacular Washington tulip fields and then I get to bore you all my photos. And yes I do realise you’ve seen very similar photos before.  Long time readers may want to grab a cup of tea at this point.

You will have noticed that a certain not-so-little-anymore Minx was also avidly photographing. That’s one of her pics below.  I’m such a proud mama!

 

   

We’re still quite early in the season.  If you live in the Pacific Northwest I reckon you’ve got at least two more weeks to see the splendour.

    wonderful pictures from wonderful angles wishing we had something that beautiful here. we “only” have fields where you can cut the tulips yourself but they don’t look so wonderful.

    Ha! I have discovered that the best way to photograph tulips is to lie in the dirt on your back and point the camera upwards. The Minx finds my subsequent all-over grubbiness hilarious :)

    I was thinking that the angle these photos came from must have been a dirty one, but well worth the trouble, obviously. Seeing them from underneath really shows what chalices of light tulips are. It is their most enchanting attribute. I’m glad you had a sunny day for your visit, and my, the Minx has indeed been growing since I last saw a picture. Bittersweet.
