Spring’s most spectacular flower fields across the world!
Springtime is completely enchanting for a number of reasons. The ice melts away, and in its place, nature comes alive with colour. Springtime brings us warm sunshine, chirping birds, and other such wonders of nature. Flowers begin to bloom across the world, from the Netherlands to Canada to New Zealand. Fields transform into endless seas of bluebells, wisteria, tulips, sunflowers, and more. So, we’ve curated a selection of the most beautiful flower fields across the world.
Keukenhof, The Netherlands
Keukenhof is one of the most adored tulip fields in the world. Keukenhof’s 32-hectare field is home to more than seven million flowers every year. As a result, the Netherlands is known as the ‘flower shop of the world’. Apart from vibrant tulips, the garden also has hyacinths, daffodils, orchids, roses, carnations, irises, and more.
Burgervlotbrug, The Netherlands
On the other hand, Burgervlotbrug is a Keukenhof alternative. In this northern Dutch village, flowers are grown in lines separated by colour. This creates a stunning rainbow effect.
Hitachi Seaside Park, Japan
Hitachi Seaside Park seems like it was plucked out of a whimsical fairytale. During springtime, the park comes alive with 4.5 million blue nemophila flowers. These flowers, nicknamed ‘baby blue eyes’, spill across these fields in a dreamlike manner. However, the park doesn’t just shine during springtime. Here, many other flowers bloom across all four seasons. For instance, kochia leaves turn bright red during the autumn. Moreover, the park is also home to daffodils, roses, and tulips.
Sunny California is a gateway to some of nature’s most stunning gifts. It has beaches, sunshine, and even beautiful flower fields. Carlsbad in southern California is home to a fifty-acre flower field. Here, rows and rows of flowers paint the city’s fields the colours of the rainbow. In other words, it’s a springtime dream. Although the city’s primary flower is buttercups, it also comes alive with many other flowers. For instance, roses, orchids, petunias, and more.
During spring, the Provence region of France may just be one of the most picturesque in the world. The region is filled with acres and acres of lavender fields. That combined with early-summer’s sweet sunsets, Provence certainly makes for a bucket-list trip.
New Zealand is a spring country. The land comes alive during spring, and places such as Tekapo, Twizel, Lake Pukaki, and Lindis Pass are known for their flower fields. With the backdrop of the serene lakeside, lupins and tulip fields create a stunning springtime view.
The Fuji Shibazakura Festival, Japan
Japan may be known for its stunning cherry blossoms, or Sakura. Cherry blossom season draws in thousands of visitors to the country each year. But the Shibazakura Festival threatens to steal the show with its vibrant fields and stunning landscapes. The base of Mount Fuji is home to shibazakura, or pink moss/phlox moss fields. With the backdrop of the majestic mountain, the fields turn into vibrant shades of red, magenta, and light purple during this festival.
These views are almost surreal, like pieces of art, or scenes from a fairytale. But one thing’s for sure: there’s nothing quite like a reminder of the beauty of nature to welcome spring.
