Skagit Valley: River of Flowers

River of Flowers  San Diego's bright sunny days remind me of my trip to Washington State.  Seattle and the surrounding areas were inundated with cloud-cover for much of my visit, but my memories are glowing.  The Skagit Valley's tulip and flower farms are one reason for my warm memories.  A slow pace, peaceful open space, nice people, and thick rows of tulips stretching to the horizon are all reasons visitors to Seattle should venture one hour north on Interstate 5 to Skagit Valley's Tulip Festival.  This photograph was taken just before dark clouds rolled overhead and let loose thick watery droplets onto the river of flowers.   Ago vita vos somnium (live the life you dream)
