Tulips: The Flower We Saw That Day

*Chuckles to self*

Oh how I love a good play on anime titles! They are almost as good as anime puns.

Yes! If you didn’t already know Jon Spencer Reviews and I (along with my roommate) went to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival on Monday. Jon lives pretty darn close to me so I thought it would be fun if he joined in on this little adventure. The Tulip festival was about an hour and a half from where I live (even closer to Jon’s place since he is about 40 mins from my town). It is located just outside of Woodburn Oregon and runs from March 23rd to May 6th.

The event only cost $5 dollars to get in and they had plenty of food, wine, and child activities for the whole family. A lot of people ended up bringing their doggos! We got to see some really cute puppers as well. One of my favorite parts was seeing a really pretty horse that lived next to the field. You could tell see was used to getting attention because she pranced around her yard like she owned the place! Yeah…she knew she was pretty XD

We walked around the field a couple of times to enjoy the flowers and their beauty. We also decided to check out the gift shop and pop up booths. They had some really neat things! I ended up picking up a couple of bouquets to take home and some postcards. Even though the hayride was only from one end of the field to the other I still had fun riding it!

I think all of our favorite tulips were the Queen of Night’s. They were these really dark plum shade that almost looked black (just like my soul). Maybe that’s why I liked them so much? The Apricot Fox tulips were also quite beautiful! The same could be said of the Blushing Beauty tulips. It’s safe to assume I like anything that is blush color. Jon and my roommate got some awesome pics of me standing in the tulip field mix, which was a blend of yellow, red, purple, white, and pink tulips. It seemed more people wanted to take pics in the solid colored tulips but that was fine by me! It was nice not being around a ton of people while we took photos.

We had a great time! It was definitely a trip for the books. Jon and I are going to head to the carousel museum in Albany next. If you guys want to see a blog post on that then let me know in the comments section. I also want to head to the Japanese Gardens in Portland sometime before summer. My friend went not too long ago and she said it was STUNNING! That spot is definitely on my bucket list now.

  2. wow, that’s pretty awesome.
    we don’t have tulips in our place, pretty rare, I think, so frolicking in a field of one must be amazing.
    and it’s nice you live in close distance with a fellow blogger
