The essence of Spring, in Hungary

I may be missing the resplendently manicured Spring gardens of Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris, St James Park in London or the Belvedere garden in Vienna but I’m still in luck to be witnessing the glorious Spring season in Hungary – particularly in the southwest region of Zala where we are.

Walking on the fields every morning, we are completely blown away by the stunning colours of wild flowers that sprouted overnight in the fields.   And even while we are driving on the road,  deliciously-looking cherry blossoms and forsythia bushes wave at us, beckoning us to  stop, asking to be photographed!

Spring is a magical  experience.  After the cold, dull,  grey days of winter, everything suddenly comes alive.  Colours start growing out from the ground, erupting  from branches of the trees.  Gardens and forests ooze with heavenly scents, attracting the bees to come out in search for that sweet nectar to make honey.  Life for them is beginning again.  And for us, too.  Without realizing it, the mere sight of these beautiful flora and fauna around us gets us alive with excitement, inspiring us to do beautiful things.  That is the power of Spring.

Forsythia in its majestic glory!  How I wish I could have one in my garden!

Just at our doorstep is where forests and meadows form a staggering landscape of colours..
