Sunrise at the Tulip Fields in Woodburn

Ladies,  Let's go to see how the tulips look at sunrise.  I think we have to go more than once to the fields.  Also Cannon is sponsoring a photo contest as usual.  See below for information at the site for ProPhoto.

Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm Field Report

March 22nd - These pictures were taken today.
The tulips are up and doing well with the mild spring. They are right on schedule and we should have color for Easter (opening) weekend.

    It was awsome that the rain did not show up till we were at breakfast and on the way home. It was a little muddy, but very beautiful!

    Didn't realize there was a fee. A little too nasty for that. :)

    April 6, 2013

    • Rae Lynn N.

      There is no fee if you go early!

    The rain held off while we were there though thunderheads boomed all around us. No charge for the early birds as the staff doesn't arrive till later. I had a great time and breakfast at Elmer's was awesome! Thanks for driving Sharon..

    Rae Lynn did a great job keeping the rain away! But none of my tulips would hold still...thus all the pics of farm equipment :)

    I will be at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Fields tomorrow at 6:30 am just before sunrise. Pam Long and I will go straight there. We will not be stopping at Bridgeport.

      Sharon and I are planning to meet you at the fields at around 6:30. We have your phone# Rae Lynn and will keep in touch. Bringing towels, boots and plastic garbage bags! We are driving straight there.

    I'm feeling cold and soggy now so I'm going to pass on tomorrow. Yucky weather. Have fun and stay warm and dry.

    Decided I need to do some overdue house chores and finish my taxes! Not to mention I don't think I could possibly wake up that early tomorrow. Hopefully next time!

    I've decided to go to the Nature Photographers of PNW meeting at the U of O - so I'll catch the next tulip fields trip.

    Between weather, homework, and puppies, I need to bow out. See you next time.

    See you there

  • Wendy S.

    Sorry, but the weather is too iffy for me. I can't imagine that we'll get much of a sunrise and I'm not eager to get up that early for a small percentage of maybe. I may be sorry, but see you next time!

    April 3, 2013

  • Rae Lynn N.

    Pamela and I are going to the fields tomorrow as Saturday is so unsure, but I will still try to go Saturday if the weather suprises us. I will let you know Friday morning if this meetup is still on. Stay tuned!

      What time are y'all going tomorrow?

      April 1, 2013

    • Rae Lynn N.

      Sorry Ann Marie. I didn't see your message till right now. Not as many flowers as I was hoping. NO SUN!

      April 2, 2013

  • Pamela L.

    We went this morning.....no sunrise, only heavy gray skies. I think we might have better days after the weekend rain.

    April 2, 2013

  • Deri D.

    Also weather dependent for me. I will see you all at the fields if the weather turns out ok. I am probably going to go to the fields on Wed. morning as the weather doesn't look too bad then.....

    April 1, 2013

  • Brenda H

    This is weather dependent for me too. Will meet at the fields if I do go.

  • Rae Lynn N.

    The weather is not looking favorable for Saturday. But let's see what happens. Any thoughts?

    April 1, 2013

    • Andrea D.

      I saw that on the news this morn. 80% chance of rain Thurs, Fri, Sat & Sun. :-(. I guess we wait and watch. I went out yesterday and it would be a muddy mess in many areas as the paths are not all grass covered.

      April 1, 2013

  • T

    Sorry, really wanted to go, but have massive cold right now.

    April 1, 2013

  • Nancy M

    I will meet you at the fields in Woodburn. I won't be at the park and ride.

    March 31, 2013

  • Rae Lynn N.

    We often meet at the Park and Ride at Bridgeport next to the Village Inn. But I do not want to arrange carpooling for the group so early in the morning. Please indicate who is going and at what time you are meeting so others don't get confused. I will not be meeting at the Park and Ride for this meetup.

    It's currently saying rain...so I'll just keep an eye...and update. I will be going at sunrise with sis and dog

    March 31, 2013

  • Terri A.

    was there yesterday...tulips are all on the right side of the farm this year so not quite as big as last year....there are lots in bloom but not all. Will keep an eye on the weather and if it is good.....I will go back to meet up with you....hopefully, the hot air balloons will be there too!

    March 31, 2013

  • Rae Lynn N.

    We will need to watch the weather! Hope it stays good!

      Got it! Thanks Wendy!

      I am coming from Fort Vancouver. Can I just meet you there?

      March 27, 2013

  • Kathryn M.

    See you there

    March 26, 2013

  • Mary H.

    Does anyone want to carpool?

    March 25, 2013

    • Wendy S.

      Jeannette - where do you live?

      March 26, 2013

    • T

      I would be interested.... From Vancouver.

      March 26, 2013

  • Mary H.

    Meeting at Bridgeport is perfect. What time should we meet? I can drive as long as someone
    navigates!

    March 26, 2013

    • Wendy S.

      We should meet no later than 5:15 (yikes!) if we're to be at the tulip fields by 6. That way, we'll have a few minutes to organize ourselves and get on the road. I'm happy to drive or ride; I can certainly be the navigator.

      March 26, 2013

  • Deri D.

    If anyone is going from the Newberg/Dundee area I am happy to give them a ride.....

    March 26, 2013

  • Pamela L.

    Unless things have changed this year, there won't be anyone charging for parking at sunrise. I think their day starts at 9 and we'll be long gone.

    March 25, 2013

  • Wendy S.

    Yes, I'd like to carpool; I'm coming from Aloha/Beaverton. Maybe we could meet at the park and ride at Bridgeport (next to the Village Inn) like we'll do for the other trip if you're not coming from that area?

    March 25, 2013

  • Andrea D.

    I understand that it's $10 to park but there's a season pass for $30. So if you plan to go more than 3 times and aren't carpooling you can get the pass on the festival site.

    1 · March 25, 2013

  • Rae Lynn N.

    Please indicate if you would like to carpool with someone and then arrange your own carpooling with that person
