TULIP TIME IN BETTY'S HOME PARK

Last summer on a trip with friends, we visited the tulip fields south of Bellingham. Awed by the fields of tulips and entranced y individual varieties in a plethora of shapes and colors, we ordered a small selection, which Betty planted last fall.
If you like flowers, we recommend taking a springtime tour when the fields are in bloom. If Bellingham or the Vernon Valley areas are too far away, there are nice places near Woodland,WA, and displays are found south of Portland.
When this orange variety is in full sun, the petals are almost fluorescent. They just glow!
And way out front, from a former and long forgotten season of daffodils, this solitary white blossom popped up all alone last week. Hardy and resilient after all these years it is a survivor.
It has been kind of nice to have a few flowers again around here. Thanks, Betty.
