Throwback Thursdays - Me, Mom & Tulips

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain, Community Manager

With the first day of spring tomorrow, the tulips have begun to pop up in some yards and businesses,  I've mostly noticed daffodils but there are a few tulips out there too.  Each year Mount Vernon has an amazing tulip festival, I believe it's one of the top 10 in the world.  Just about 40 mins north of Seattle, the colorful fields are quite the sight!

Here's a pic of me and my amazing Mom about 4 years ago.  We've had a warm winter so I'm expecting the festival to kick off a bit earlier this year.

Tulips are so beautiful, but we don't see many of them here along the Gulf coast. Love the picture!

Ha, it almost looks like one of those fake murals that you have dropped behind you when you're in some urban photo studio--too perfect! I must say, you're prettier NOW, missy.

I think we were there a few years back Kerrie. It was breathtaking to see all those tulips of various colors.

I have always loved daffodils over tulips but they are both so beautiful. We only get to see them for a very, very short time and in pots. They don't grow well here so you never see them anywhere but in the store in a pot.

I went to the Tulip Festival in 2013 and fell in love with tulips all over again!  Love the area although I'm a bit partial to Mount Vernon as I was born there and my parents grew up in Sedro Woolley....    Tulip Festival 2013

Kerrie, on my very first trip to Seattle, I stayed with my brother, Jack, who lived in an adorable bunglow on the water on Samish Island.  And we took a nick long drive to see the tulips!  I've never forgotten how beautiful they are! 

Oh, and happy birthday, you!

Hi Kerrie,

Wonderful picture of you and your mom in a field of tulips. I fell in love with tulips when I ran my first half marathon in 1991 up in Solvang, CA as the entire race was just hills and hills of tulips in every color imaginable.

Spring flowers will be especially welcome this year.

We have a very rainy morning in Maryland as we experience spring showers that are taking place as the Cherry Blossoms are getting ready to bloom.

I went to a tulip festival over the weekend with 100,000 tulips. It was breathtakingly beautiful. A blog post is to come soon.
