Did you know? In the Pacific Northwest, tulips grow like wildflowers! About an hour north of Seattle in the Skagit Valley, there are fields and fields of big, bright tulips. For being only an hour drive away, how can you not take a trip to go frolicking? That is just what we did. 11 Residents, 2 Staff, 1 Mission… Mission: Tulips. It was a beautiful partly cloudy, windy day with the sun peeking through the clouds just enough to warm our chilly bones. The residents had a wonderful time wandering through the fields and buying their own lovely tulip clippings. It was a good day!
