Nothing signals the arrival of spring in Western Washington like an expansive field of blooming yellow daffodils in the Skagit Valley.

Starting with 5 acres in 1947, the Dutch immigrant Roozen family now runs the Washington Bulb Company on 2000 acres of Skagit Valley fertile soil, making it the largest daffodil, tulip and iris agricultural business in the world.  [Ref]
