At the end of April-May this year, we visited a tulip festival in British Columbia, Tulips of the Valley.

 

Each year in April the flowers are grown on the 20-acre field in Chilliwack, British Columbia. Different varieties of daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips can be found while walking along the long, narrow alleys. The colorful flower carpets — which seem to stretch to the horizon — made a huge impression on us especially because the entire farm is surrounded by the lush greenery of the Fraser Valley. Just over the lush fields of flowers, you can spot the magnificent peak of Mt Cheam and other snow-capped mountains.

The sun brightly illuminating the tulip fields that day, separating the petals of flowers from the mountains in the background, painted the idyllic landscapes that you can see in the pictures. Inspired by everything that we found around, we headed further West to the mountains and Harrison Lake.

Fraser Valley is a region in British Columbia famous for its organic farms, where residents of nearby cities come for vegetables, fruits or flowers. Tulips of the Valley is a family-owned festival held on a year-round farm.
