Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm


On Saturday Josh and I took a trip down to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn with our friends Bethany and Eric and their baby. (Side note: I'm not a fan of babies, but theirs is the cutest ever. I kind of wanted to take him home with me.) The top news story in Portland over the weekend was that we were supposed to get temperatures in the 70's and 80's (which we did!), so of course that meant everyone in the whole city decided to head out to the tulip farm with us. We had to wait in a line of traffic for about thirty minutes before parking at the farm, and in the fields it was nearly impossible to take photos without any strangers in them, but it was still fun. (And worth the drive and admission fee, if you live in the Portland area! Although I would suggest going on a weekday to beat the crowds.)

I decided to be unusually sensible and forgo heels in favor of (relatively flat) sandals, which turned out to be smart as the ground was muddy.

  4. Such a gorgeous location! That's the thing I don't like about Southern California - you can never find something like a flower farm around here, it's too much of a desert.

  5. Lovely place! I saw lots of tulips and a huge pair of wooden clogs like those when I went to The Netherlands recently.

  6. oh my goodness, best picture place ever! I actually live 1 mile away from Holland (home of the tulips, right? They actually come from Turkey, but who cares?) and I don't have a tulip farm near! Not fair I tell you! Not fair! haha. x

  12. Stacey the photos are just beautiful (as always)... your outfit is perfect for a tulip farm, I love florals on you! And I'm so jealous of your weather... the warm weather we had in the UK in March was our summer - it's now winter again, back to boots and two pairs of socks (and I was still freezing today)!!!

    1. I think the weather in England is a lot like it is here in Oregon - very schizophrenic. Even though we've had summertime temperatures the past few days, I bet that by next week I'll be like you, bundled up in boots and thick socks again!
