LA CONNER, Wash. (AP) — After a mild winter, fields of yellow daffodils near La Conner are blooming already and Skagit Valley tulips could flower early too.

Tulip bulb growers tell the Skagit Valley Herald their fields will likely be full of color before the end of the month — in advance of the month-long tulip Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in April.

Organizers expect there should be plenty for visitors to see and do during the festival in the Mount Vernon area. This year, the La Conner Chamber of Commerce organized a Daffodil Festival in March to lead into the 32-year-old tulip festival.
