Let’s Take A (Virtual) Spring Walk

Let’s Take A (Virtual) Spring Walk

I invite you for a spring walk in Hungary. A virtual one. Do you hate to hear that? Me, too. I like feeling the wind on my face and smelling the flowers. Smelling the sunshine, too. (You can smell sunshine just like you can smell snow, don’t you think? I do.) But we don’t have many choices these days.

I hope you are able to walk around your place to enjoy the awakening spring – or autumn if you’re on that side of the globe. We share some of our favorite spring shots taken on these walks – and a lot more taken on our spring hiking trips in the past years.

Snowdrops: the first flowers to bloom

They can already be seen in February, even before all the snow melts. Hence their name, I guess.

In Hungary the Alcsúti Arborétum Nature Reserve has the largest snowdrop field, but our mountains and meadows are also full of blooming snowdrops in late February and early March.

Then it’s the trees. Some of them start their bloom in early March, some in early April. The white, yellow or pink flowers on the bare trees are such a delight to walk under in the sunshine.

You can see them in the forests but in the cities, too.

Millions of wildflowers on the forest floor

Blooming in the Vértes Mountains, Hungary

Seasonal forests don’t grow leaves until about late April. It means that sunshine can reach the forest floor and it’s home to millions of beautiful wildflowers. Millions! Forests become the most wonderful gardens this time of the year.

Some flowers are tiny, some are larger. All is so-so pretty. 🙂
