down in the valley

It is tulip season in the valley.  
Flocks of humans in cars come from everywhere to see the brilliant colors. 
This is when the locals stay home.  

The last time I saw these poplars was in March.  It was a cold northwest day;  the daffodils were just coming on.  

This is the image I'll probably have in my mind until May.
