From the moment you arrive at Wicked Tulip Flower Farm in Johnston, Rhode Island you will have a huge smile on your face. Owners Keriann and Jeroen Koeman have created what I  call “the happiest place in Rhode Island.” You can learn all about them, the organic tulip bulbs you can purchase and their hours of operation at Wicked Tulips. Kariann tells me that they have had visitors from Maine and Pennsylvania. This is the Koeman’s  first year in Rhode Island and already they are bringing tourism to our state.

There is a Show Garden when you first enter the farm where you can take photos and see all of the gorgeous and various varieties of tulips. Beware the Tulip Police are around to make sure nobody mistakes this garden for the u-pick. The u-pick is adjacent and as you can see in the photo above is clearly roped off. After you’ve picked your bounty there is a “self-wrapping” station but  no worries, help is always available. Wicked Tulips is staffed with the the friendliest staff and volunteers. Not to rush the season, but I am already looking forward to Tulips ’17 . Oh, there are plans!

It wouldn’t be a Reading With Robin post without sharing some of my favorite books. These are just some of the Hot Summer Reads that I’ll be giving away so make sure to check out the Reading With Robin Facebook page for details. I like to call this one “Reading Through The Tulips.”

Happy to have these beauties home to remind me of my magical morning at Wicked Tulips!
