Tulips bring people together from around the world
May 1, 2023

This lovely photo was submitted as an entry for the North Coast Credit Union Photo Contest but is what makes it special is the story behind the photo.

The three generations in this photo got together when grandmother flew (for the first time ever in her life) without knowing English from Moldova to the US. With COVID and war in neighboring Ukraine, she had not seen her daughter in over four years AND had not met her granddaughter. The family decided to commemorate the visit with a trip to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival for a first-time ever visit to a tulip field.

Thank you to Ogla Johnson for sharing this story. We know our tulips touch lives and give us joy and meaning. It is a pleasure to hear such stories and have the privilege of sharing them.
