Blue forests, flower fields, rose festivals -- certain seasons bring beauteous natural wonders. But if you blink, you might miss seeing some of these flowers in full bloom. Just make sure that if you're headed to any of these particular places, you've got the right season.
1. Take in the Flower Fields of Carlsbad Ranch
These California Flower Fields look like something out a movie, which is fitting because they're only a few hours from Hollywood. But while you might be anxious to film yourself running around the 50 acres of flowers, you'll have to, uh... leave your drone at home.
2. Don't miss the Blue Forest of Belgium
The Blue Forest of Belgium, called Halle's Wood, is a stunning display of nature, but, of course, it's best to see it in full bloom. In order to catch the wild bluebell hyacinths in all their glory, just make sure you're there at the end of April through the the beginning of May.
3. Book it to the Badlands
They're called the "Badlands" for a reason-- this part of the Wild West is known for its relatively harsh conditions. But if you visit during the rainy season (May through June) you may get treated to a spectacular flower show.
4. See the cherry blossoms bloom in Bonn, Germany
5. Kick it in Kirstenbosch to see "Africa's most beautiful garden"
The 90 acres of land at The National Botanical Garden of South Africa leave plenty of room for the 7,000 species that live there to flourish throughout the year. It's recommended that visitors tour the grounds in the spring for a chance to see the proteas in full bloom.
6. Stop and smell the roses in Bulgaria
Every year, a giant festival takes place in the Rose Valley to mark a time of both celebration and crown a new "Queen Rose." The best time to see the roses is in May or June when the rainfall is heaviest and the roses are out.
7. But in Hawaii, flowers are always in full bloom
On the islands, there's never a wrong time to spot some flowers, as it's "viewing time" all year round. What we're really trying to say is, "Take us to Hawaii, please!"
