On Friday Don got off work early, the sun was shining and the temperatures were almost balmy for this time of year. We had planned to drive down on Saturday to Skagit County, about 45 minutes south of Bellingham, to see the daffodils that grow there by the zillions. We had heard that they were at peak bloom and didn't want to miss them. With such nice weather and extra time, and knowing how fickle our weather can be, we decided to take the drive on Friday afternoon.
And we made the right choice. The traffic, once we left town, was less than on a weekend and the sun was glorious on the daffodils. The scent is heavenly as you drive between fields full of blooms. There were even daffodils planted at the intersections of the busy highway.
By Saturday the clouds had come in early and the weather was tending towards rain - so we were glad that we went when we did. The tulips were just beginning to show color - not enough for pictures even, but we will go back another week to see the tulips.
