It's Tulip Picking Time in Denton County, TX

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509



Pilot Point, Texas


With temperatures in the high 70's and sunny, it is the perfect time to pick tulips at the Tulip Farm, which is located in Pilot Point, just north of Dallas. From Flower Mound, it is approximately a 50-minute drive. I believe wellness in nature is the best way to live. Once you pay your entry fee of $6.00 (less for seniors), take a breath. Immerse yourself in nature's beauty. A lot of work goes into farming. Proceed carefully. Respectfully. Walk. Tiptoe. Dance. However, you choose to enjoy your day, just get to the Tulip Farm, if you can. There are baskets available to place your tulips down before purchasing what you pick. 


Egyptian Proverbs teaches, "Seek peacefully, you will find." As soon as I learned the Tulip Farm was opened for business, I wasted no time to get there. Inside every single tulip there was peace. Within the rows of tulips, there is a feeling of harmony. 



Tulips will continue to grow as long as nature allows. The projected date to peak is March 10th. I hope to get there again. In the early days of spring, only the bravest tulips emerge. Within a few weeks there will be a variety of different types of tulips and various colors. They say, "Never put off tomorrow what you can do today. Today I picked Tulips. They make me happy. I hope just looking at these photographs made you happy too!

Hello Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, tulips are so delicate and beautiful, I started seeing them in my area as well. There's nothing like fresh flowers to lift anyone's mood.

Beth Atalay - Tulips and spring flowers are a trip to nature's health. I am thankful for all the flowers, trees, and plants that makes emotional health possible. They certain lift my spirits. I can only imagine how instrumental they are to you in Florida. When my Aunt lived in Sarasota, I was amazed at all the beauty I could see everywhere I traveled.

Hello Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, that is one of the things I love about living in FL, the color palette is exceptional.

Beth Atalay - I visited the Marie Selby Botanical gardens during my last trip to Sarasota. It felt like paradise. 

I would definitely enjoy the exceptional "color palette," nature provides to other parts of Florida too.

I had already decided that I was going to venture out to the farmers market tomorrow to buy some fresh flowers.  Tulips were on my list.  Great photos and lovely tulips.

Joyce Marsh - I hope you were able to get to the Farmer's Market this morning. Did you get tulips? I went yesterday to my local Farmer's Market to pick up fruits and vegetables. They had a nice selection of flowers and plants too. 

Thank you!

Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI - I'm glad the arctic blast of winter is behind us too! Grass is turning green. I see buds on some trees. The highlight for me was visiting the Tulip Farm in Pilot Point. They are still giving me something to admire here at home, and I hope to get back there when they peak at the farm to pick more varieties and colors. 

Thank you for your compliments.

We tried growing a few tulips in our flower garden once, but I just don't think conditions were optimal for them.  Beautiful while they lasted, and totally agree with you, there's a peace gained by looking closely, and inhaling the scent of flowers! 

I tend to be drawn more to coneflowers (love the spiral patterns!) and some other perennials.  We'll have to start from scratch at our new place with our garden, so I'll be looking for low maintenance flowers native to the area that our bees will love, and hopefully they'll pull in some butterflies to the mountaintop too :)

Liz and Bill Spear - I support you and your dreams. I patiently wait for yours to come true.

Although I was successful in planting tulips in Illinois, I never had success in Texas. You may be interested in the background story about the people who came from the Netherlands to create and plant their Tulip Farm in Texas. I wrote it this morning. 

I do love coneflowers. I plant them and they grow. It's always a safe bet to plant native plants. The rewards I get are the array of butterflies and bees!

Oh, how I wish you speed in making your dreams come true.

We're still in the building permit process, and expecting to be complete later this year and get our zoo moved in prior to putting our current home on the market.  I suspect a few things involving gardening will get pushed into next year, and I'll be looking to make it as low maintenance as possible (e.g. sow wildflower seeds along the street frontage (less to mow and prettier than grass!).  I've got a few flower seed packets I haven't tried before (sunflowers in particular) to see how they work.

I'll check out your tulip farm post.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Liz and Bill Spear - How exciting! You have a lot of good things in store! Moving the zoo may be challenging, but no doubt about it, you will make it happen. All in good time and for good measure. Gardening begins with one seed or seed packet at a time. You have a lot of good ideas. I found sunflower were easy to grow. In a suburb of Illinois before moving to TX, I planted sunflower seeds near the corner of my house. Only one seed grew. It was the year I moved to Maine for my summer job. When I got back in September, that single sunflower grew to be taller than my one-story ranch. I was amazed! The guy next door chuckled and told me he wondered when Jack was moving in (Jack & the beanstalk). Sunflowers are fascinating. There is a great history lesson to be learned in their origin.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  when I traveled in Holland, I checked out the "Tulip Factories" just kidding Holland I believe has the largest Tulip growing compared to any other part of the world... on a side note my mother loved Tulips, Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. - I remember you sharing your mother's love for Tulips. Today I wrote the background story about the people who immigrated to America from the Netherlands to build their Tulip Farm. I hope you get a chance to read it and enjoy it too.

Thank  you Kat Palmiotti! The scent of tulips are now in my house. I wrote a background story this morning on ActiveRain about the history of the Tulip Farm.

As you can attest, dreams can come true!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP funny I went out to buy flowers and also bought two lilac bushes to plant. Go figure! I’ve never tried growing them here in Florida so I’m not sure how that will work but we shall see! 

Feb 24, 2024 10:23 AM
Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Joyce Marsh - Oh, I do hope your lilac business grow! The scent of fresh lilacs is a heavenly scent. I never planted them either, but I would try! I wish you good luck!!! I think they grow pretty big and wide. Let me know how they turn out!

Patricia it must be an amazing experience to see that gorgeous field of tulips at the Tulip Farm in Pilot Point.

George Souto - for me personally, it's like going home, to something familiar, that I only had a few chances in life to return. Tulips only grow for a short season each year.
