Tiptoe through the tulips: Tulip picking adventure


Remember last year’s visit to the Wicked Tulips Farm? We did it again this year! The tulips arrived a little late this year because of a prolonged winter. I had been waiting for a couple of weeks for the tickets to go on sale and I snagged them the minute they finally went on sale. It was a perfect day to be outside - not too hot, a little cloudy, and just the right amount of breeze. It’s such a pleasant and relaxing feeling to be surrounded by beautiful and colorful tulips. The girls had fun picking their favorite flowers and running around the farm.


There was a ‘picking area’ for picking and a ‘show garden’ just for viewing. The girls spent a long time at the show garden checking out different colors and varieties of tulips -- Grand Perfection, Mary Ann, Fringed Mix, Pretty Princess, and Blushing Lady to name a few.


Our little budding photographer carried her camera (it’s real BTW) and enjoyed taking pictures.


There were picnic tables by the farm -- we had brought some cheese and berries to enjoy after picking. It was a short and sweet couple hours spent at the farm but we enjoyed the tulips we brought back home for another couple of weeks. Tulip watching is one of my favorite spring-time activities, and I’m glad we got a chance to visit again this year!



Is tulip whispering a thing!? She looks like she knows what she is doing : )
