Intro

We drove up to Mount Vernon to Cindy's house, then down to La Conner, for lunch then out to the Tulips.

La Conner is the home town of the Tulip Festivals.

Having canal access to the Pacific it is also a fishing port, so we got some great seafood.

Maurice was up for a visit from Texas, so it was a trip to met and show off the local area.

Sights
La Conner is an old well established town.
Houses are elevated on the hillside or built above shops to give views of the canal. One of the last of the original buildings.
 
They seem to stretch on forever. A lot of land devoted to just flowers.

Producing every year, draws quite a crowd to view them.

These are pictures of one of the managed gardens, Roozen-gaarde Gardens. To showcase their `product!'

Such a concentration of beautiful plants.

Purchase on site or get the catalog.

The on-line site is below, I think it sells from all the gardens not just this one.

Again, the best way to get candid shots, when they don't know their under the lens.
