Just had to add my glowing review of my visit to Victoria B.C. in May 2007 for the most amazing spectacular, knock your eyes out colors of tulips I've ever seen in my life. From the moment we drove up the driveway to the parking lot, the landscapings and plantings were arranged in the most beautiful colors. I'm sure the place is beautiful year round, but on this particular visit it was right at the height of the tulips in bloom and that was totally amazing. Worth the ferry ride from Seattle for a visually beautiful visit.
