This Gallery is a look at Skagit Valley farming.
       Several hundred million dollars is generated yearly by farming  Skagit Valley Washington.  These Skagit Valley pictures trace the route of the Annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival near Mt. Vernon and its varied agricultural scenery.

        Breathtaking fields of  perfect blue rows provide great iris photographs of the "Blue Iris" on McClean Road.  Nearby displays of  "Queen of the Night", "Burgundy Lace" and "Greenland Tulips" add to the riot of spring color. The Roozengaarde Display Garden sports tulips closeup and "Little Mountain" - Mt. Vernon's high hill lookout.   "Sunny walls" of  red  tulips and  streams of  "White Iris" rest a stone's throw from each other...each appreciative of mild winters and moderately dry summers...the perfect bulb growing climate.  "Delicate" white daffodils are among many varieties that yield many a  "Daffodil Surprise"  in the early spring.
       Unique "Ivy covered Barns" and "Barns with Tulips" painted on them are seen as you wind your way  from Mt. Vernon to LaConner.  There, the  "Swinomish Channel", gateway to the Swinomish Indian Tribe on Fidalgo Island, poses an arched bridge over Pioneer Parkway.
       "Farming Skagit Valley"  is always a large proposition.  Seventy percent of the world's "Mustard" comes from Skagit Valley.   "Lettuce Fields"  seem to stretch for miles.  Very specialized "Lettuce Planting" machinery starts the crop, but "Hoeing all day long" is strictly one man against many weeds!
       At the end of the day, the sunset at the "Fir-Conway Church" says it all. Thanks for mother nature's climate that creates intense, colorful beauty.
Here's a map of Skagit Valley Washington where these pictures were taken.
