Even if you’re not the biggest flower lover in the world, you must admit that there’s something so special about them. Not only are they wonderful and breathtaking, but they literally brighten up every space, plus they smell marvelous.
What’s interesting is the fact that many people claim that precisely flowers frequently lift their mood. Is it because of their lovely appearance, or is it because of their smell or both? At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter.
So if you’re interested to visit some of the most spectacular places in the world that are loaded with flowers, then you’ve come to the right place, because today we will give you the list of places where you will be able to enjoy their beauty.
Top Astonishing Flower Destinations A Person Must See
Even though it’s currently winter, which means that we cannot look forward to another super bloom anytime soon in many areas in the world, it still doesn’t mean that there aren’t destinations where you can enjoy some beautiful wildflowers.
One of them is California (both Southern and Northern). Avid anthophile behind mklibrary.com/california-super-bloom thinks that the most exciting wildflower events occur precisely in this state, especially at Death Valley. Namely, a “super bloom” event happens approximately every ten to fifteen years. The last one was back in 2016.
Furthermore, desert wildflowers at lower altitudes (including the Death Valley’s valley floor) usually appear in mid-February and last up until Mid-April. At higher altitudes, areas that are over 5,000 feet, people have the opportunity to see flowers even in June and July as well.
Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina
If you’re a true flower lover who lives near North Carolina, then be patient for a little while because spring is the best time to visit the Blue Ridge Mountains if you want to smell some rhododendrons.
There are so many lovely places you can see, including the vivid and gorgeous city of Asheville. Out there, you will come across a base camp where you can spend the day hiking. Besides that, you can easily gain access to various amazing trails that are only thirty minutes away from downtown.
