Tulips in My Kitchen
The best part of late winter is tulips begin appearing. They are one of my favorite flowers, though they aren't around for as long as I'd like them to be. (Roses, for instance, can hang around this area for half the year.) But because of that tulips symbolize the return of spring to me. New life is here, and many other flowers will soon appear as well. Oh, and the amazing Wooden Shoe tulip farm will soon open. Can't wait for that!
Back to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Fest 2016
It was a gloriously sunny morning in April 2016, so it was a good idea to return to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon. We arrived a little after sunrise; a thick fog was still there, though burning off quickly, and four hot air balloons were landing and taking off among the tulips. You couldn't ask for anything more lovely.
Wooden Shoe Tulip Fest 2016
In March 2016 the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm opened its annual tulip fest, where you can walk among the flowers in all their dazzling glory. So many colors. So intense, so beautiful. One of the best places in the Pacific Northwest.
