Flowers and Seeds

This week Mom and I took a Sunday drive to the Skagit Valley. It's a bit early, but we weren't disappointed. Before the famous tulips, come the yellow daffodils. To be honest, I like the bright yellow flowers even more.

Even with a gray sky above, it looked bright and sunny below.


When we were done flower gazing, Mom and I went to the town of La Conner. I love their quaint streets, and this time of year they can get pretty crowded with tourists. We wanted to get a late lunch/early dinner. I know the parking and restaurants along the waterfront can be tricky, so I went online and found Seeds Pub and Bistro.

They had a great website, so I called about handicapped parking and access. Seeds was a perfect choice. Great atmosphere, great wait staff, and good food. We shared a burger and got a piece of pie to take home when our tummies weren't so full. So if you are thinking about doing the daffodil or tulip tour, stop on by Seeds for a great meal. -- Margy

  4. That sounds like a delightful day. I live in Vancouver too but have never had a chance to take in the Tulip Festival or to go to La Conner. I'm sure you mom enjoy the outing!

  6. Hi there - interesting post - I like the solid yellow - I took so pictures a while ago of canola, which also produce the same solid colour.

    I'll take all of the plants out of the garden beds within the next week - dig in some compost - let it rest a while and put in some winter vegetables. Well that’s the plan anyway!
