My brother and our niece and I went to visit a tulip farm in Woodburn last week. We got lucky and happened to be there during the only sunny 45 minutes of the entire day. (We were there longer than 45 minutes, but we also got rained on and very windswept.) We all took many photos. Here are a few of the best of mine.
These tractors are wood fueled. That means as you sit and drive your tractor through the fields, periodically you are required to reach behind you and grab a log out of the box to your right, open the door to the furnace, which is RIGHT BETWEEN YOUR LEGS and throw the log on the fire in order to keep the tractor moving forward. Yikes. They say these machines are all still operational and they fire them up every weekend. They don't make them like they used to, eh?
I love this photo of my niece :) She's adorable.
These look like peonies, but they are in fact tulips. Want.
I think a good time was had by all, in spite of the 15 degree drop in temperature and gale force winds that eventually drove us from the farm to the more sheltered confines of the chocolate store at the outlet mall 5 miles away :D
