Tulips are a bloomin’. . .

The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is in full bloom. . . extended to May 3.

We went with some friends to check out the Tulips near Mt. Vernon. They are blooming a little late this year because of the cold weather. A few pictures…

We went to a nearby quaint town of LaConnor to have dinner at our favorite fish n chips place. A pint o Guinness and some fish and chips.

Sign in the restaurant above the door.

Outside near the restaurant was this statue of a dog with a sweater on – so cute – I had to take a picture for some fellow knitters that would maybe enjoy it. The little plaque by the base is a picture of a dog that is passed on – get this – his name was “Dirty Biter”

the little tag says, “I’m cold – Do Not Remove”

 

 

 

 

Tulips are a big deal around here.
