Enjoy the Fields!
MARCH 1 – 30: Daffodils have already begun to send tender green shoots through the dark brown nutrient-dense Skagit soil, mainly in varieties of Dutch Master, Flower Carpet, and Standard Value – all hardy and proven varieties for the Pacific Northwest. La Conner hosts the 7th annual Daffodil Festival which celebrates these sunny harbingers of spring alongside the north/south waterside dock against the uniquely Skagit-lit blue skies against Mt. Baker’s backdrop. If you want to support small businesses, this is the town for you! Both Morris and First Streets are studded with hand-curated, interesting stores that keep innovating themselves and pivoting throughout the pandemic.
Although the Bloom Map is a buzzword throughout Skagit Valley, it may be new to you! Roozengaarde turns their map “on” once daffodils and tulips begin to bloom and “show color.” This is a great resource to refer to before you schedule a visit to Mount Vernon.
