TPS April Outing-Skagit Tulips
Thanks very much for your patience and understanding while we tried to gather the best information we could regarding the upcoming tulip blooms. I spoke with the Washington Bulb Company to get an idea of what they feel is the best weekend for the blooms.
Not all tulips are coming to bloom at the same time, however they indicated they felt the two weekends of April 12th, and the 19th, would give us the best opportunity. Ah, you say how to choose, ..........well we are looking to go both weekends. And for those that are retired or can take a day off on Wednesday between the two weekends, Bob Klavano may go up. So there may be three opportunities to not have to go alone.
I will be going up on Saturday the 12th, and Heather said she can go up on the 19th. I will plan to be there for early morning light and hopefully no breeze, and stay for afternoon light if weather allows. You can rise early or meet us up there and call me to find out where we are. Sunrise is listed for 6:24 so I will be leaving at 5:30 to be there shortly after sunrise. Anyone wanting to go up at that time please meet at the Federal Way Park and Ride, across from the Target Store, at the Commons Mall, in Federal Way. NOT THE TRANSIT CENTER @ 317th Street.
If you want to come up after sleeping in or having a relaxing breakfast call my cell @ 253-951-6495, and I will let you know where we are. I am attaching a jpg map with pink dots showing the tulip field locations. You can also visit www.tulips.com
to see their map of the fields and they will color code the fields that in bloom at that time.
