A visit to the Skagit County Tulip Festival inspires Sheena to do some yoga in the garden.
Last year one of my best horticultural trips was to the Skagit County Tulip Festival in northwest Washington State.
This year the 27th annual show runs April 1–30, although due to the unexpected warmer weather this year, Cindy Birch reports the blooms were opening early. If you are looking for a spring adventure or horticulture inspiration, make time to attend—you’ll be blown away by the blooms, varieties and new introductions! (Information about the Skagit County Tulip Festival can be found at www.tulipfestival.org or by calling 360-428-5959.)
The colours are breathtaking, resembling huge quilts of flowers, and when I was there last year I just couldn’t resist doing a little yoga in the field.
Sheena does triangle pose amidst a sea of eye-popping violet-coloured tulips.
Yoga is so valuable to gardeners as it is an excellent means of staying fit, strong and flexible during those off-season months. It is also a very effective way to build lung capacity and find a few moments of daily peace and tranquility.
Before you step out for some serious time in the spring garden, try a few yoga moves to help prevent injury and keep your bones, joints, muscles and mind fit.
Start slow and build up gently over time—and if you have any health concerns check with your doctor first before embarking on a yoga routine.
