Tulips are Starting to Bloom

I was feeling sad today, so Chris took me out to see how the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm fields in Woodburn, Oregon was coming along.  It is way early in the season and I knew that tulips wouldn’t be in bloom yet, but I knew some of their daffodils would be.  Anyhow here are a couple of photos I did get.  And yes, those are red tulips in bloom already in their fields.  They have hundreds of acres and rotate their crops in various fields each year.

This first photo I took today of part of the tulip fields.  And some of the early bloomers are starting to show color.  Needless to say these little red tulips brightened my day.  Our weather was partly cloudy and in the 50s.

Here is a photo from last year of the tulips in their full glory.  This way you can see how far they have yet to grow.

I caught this man painting their iconic windmill.  The windmill wasn’t even totally set up yet.

Here is a photo I took fairly early in the season last year showing the entire windmill.

I will have more photos over the next couple of days.

  1. Hi Cee and sorry again to have lost touch but am very glad to be in touch again – have had a difficult time over last year. Love the tulips! Jx


    • Welcome back!!! I’m was thrilled to see you back….although I’m so sorry that you have had a real rough year. Happy thoughts are traveling through the internet lines to reach you. 🙂


  2. I like the idea of showing the same subject from this year and last (the windmill, the rows of flowers). This day trip would have cheered me up, too!


  3. Now when I see that windmill I chuckle, remembering the 2nd year I went to the Annual Tulip Festival in late March. I didn’t realize that windmill was portable and that they move it every year. I was stumbling around in the wee hours of the morning in muddy fields looking for it. I just knew Mt Hood was in the background, last year. 🙂


    • The fields are in a place this year that I’ve never seen. They are in the back, but way down from their buildings. It’s going to a good walk from any parking space. 🙂
