Where have all the tulips gone?

 

Our day trip today was to go the Tulip Festival on Seabird Island in Agassiz..a small town about 92 kilometers from home. We headed east on Highway One towards the tulip fields and Harrison Hot Springs..our other planned stop for the day.

Once we found the fields..TOO LATE..no more rows upon rows of colour..we missed it!!!
