Earlier this week my mom and I went for a pre-Mother’s Day mother-daughter (and grandson 😉 ) date to Wicked Tulips Flower Farm. After seeing the farm on Instagram the past few springs, I knew I wanted to make a trip this year with my schedule being a little more flexible. My mom and I were literally stalking the weather to find a day without rain in the forecast to visit. That New England spring- gotta love it! The day started off gray, but was nice and sunny by the end. It was such a fun day and I hope it will be a new tradition for us going forward! I couldn’t resist sharing some cute family photos from our visit.
Wicked Tulips is open through Mother’s Day this year- so you have a few more days to visit! If you are planning to visit, here are a few tips I’d share:
- In early April, make sure you sign up for their e-mail list to be notified when tickets go on sale. If you are only able to go on weekends, this will help make sure you get tickets before sold out.
- Even if the weather is nice, I’d recommend wearing shoes you don’t mind getting muddy. Hunter boots were our shoe of choice 🙂
- If you are looking to get good pictures, I would recommend taking them in the showe garden. There were less people in that area and a little easier to snap a pic! The farm has two “fields” one is the you-pick field where you pick tulips and the other is the show garden where the different varieties of tulips are on display.
- If you happen to be going with a baby or toddler, the rows in the field are wide enough for a stroller so you can bring one, but be sure it has heavy duty wheels to get over rocks, bumps, etc. I also saw a lot of people using wagons which seems like a great idea!
If you have the chance to visit Wicked Tulips, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
