If there was ever a festival for me it would be a cheese festival. So when I heard of the very thing happening at Pike Place Market this weekend, I was very excited. I was in heaven as I sampled as many of the 200 kinds of cheeses that I could. There were soft, stinky cheeses as well as hard, salty ones. And I think for the first time in my life I was 'cheesed-out'. And at that moment, there was the wine garden beckoning me inside. I tasted delicious wines from around the world and soaked in a rare sunny day in Seattle. A perfect Sunday if you ask me.

So last year on one of those sunny free weekdays I got in the car by myself and drove up north to Skagit Valley to see the tulips. I was too late. Fields of cut or dead tulips just didn't have much magic to them. So when my friend Sahar asked if I wanted to go up this year, I was over it. I'm glad I went however, because this time I had a great model to add to the beauty of the tulips. And it is an amazing sight- it's like the landscape has been swathed with rich red and pink paints creating a sea of shocking color. The school bus is my favorite. Sahar thinks it was put there just to make photographers flock to it. :)
