If you’re a photo geek living in Portland, it’s hard not to know about the tulip farm down in Woodburn, OR. Every spring I’ve had to live vicariously through friends who’ve made the trip down there and frolicked in the endless fields of color blocks before chowing on brats and strawberry lemonade in the shopping pavilion.
Thanks to a car full of gal pals, I was finally able to join in on the fun this year. I had no idea so many amazing varieties of tulips existed! My favorites were the ones so purple they were almost black. The frilly edged tulips gave me such willies I couldn’t even bring myself to photograph them, but I’m sure there’s enough flower power in this post to make up for that oversight. :)
The photo above is me goofily trying to make my way through the tulip fields in all my 4’11” glory.
And on the walk back to the car we found a rare patch of grass that was free of unintentional photobombers. The conversation went something like this…
“What’s a 3-letter word we could spell with our bodies?”
Thank you to Colleen, Molly and Stefanie for a most excellent (and much needed!) girl’s day out. This whole adventure got me super pumped for future summer activities. Berry picking on Sauvie Island and water gun fights in Laurelhurst Park are seriously a handful of weeks away.
And on that note… Happy May 1st!
Amazing place and loads of fun. Wish I can find a similar place near where I am. Love the second BW picture
OH my gosh, this is one of my favorites posts of yours! Truly! I wish I could favorite the whole thing.
Oh my gah. That place looks like paradise!
It also looks vaguely familiar… maybe Jade took some pictures there years back? Or something?
One of the most beautiful posts that I’ve seen!!!
The colours are so amazing!!! You really did a great job <33 The 5th photo is my favourite!!! ^_^

Oh Kim, these are seriously gorgeous. The colors. Wow, I could stare at these forever!
This is the best, ever! I want to frolic in all of those tulips.
