Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

Serena took in her first Tulip Festival in Skagit Valley at the age of 2, when she stood just about the height of the tulips. Seven years later she still loves those pretty flowers. Must be the Dutch running in her blood. Our favourite stop is RoozenGaarde, operated by the Roozen family who started raising tulips in Holland in the mid-1700's.

With such beautiful backdrop, Serena was inspired by the explosion of colours around her and penned a few "snapshots" for her Pencraft course:
Blushing Beauty -
"Twisted like a lollipop,
with rose and yellow hue.
It's no wonder it's in the specialty row."

Menton / Maureen / Maja -
"Yummy as a macaroon,
lemon, strawberry, pistachio,
waving in the breeze.
They look so yummy,
I wish I were a bee!"
