Trip of the day – Tulip Festival 2013


Canadian Tulip Festival Ottawa

Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in WA


Holland Michigan Tulip festival

Tulip Festival – April Showers bring May Flowers, there are a multitude of tulip festivals come spring time in the United States, Canada and the Netherlands. Some of the largest festivals are held in Ottawa Canada, Amsterdam’s Keukenhof Gardens in the small village of Lisse,  Skagit Valley Washington, and Holland Michigan to name a few. So if you want to get in on the Tulip Mania, (no we’re not talking about the crash of 1637) and want to feel like a real dutch-man or dutch-woman, Make sure to grab your wooden shoes so you can go tiptoeing through the tulips..or maybe more appropriately said, clod hopping through if you’re more like me and lack that kind of grace.  Either way it only lasts while they’re in bloom so no procrastinating, time to get your flower on.
