Spring marks the start of warmer weather, when flowers begin blooming again. Embrace the warm weather and explore these beautiful gardens around the world.


Gardens of Versailles

The Palace of Versailles is known for its stunning gardens. The geometric flowerbeds and bushes have been restored to the designs during Louis XIV’s reign. The gardens must be replanted every 100 years to maintain their appearance.



Located in the Netherlands, this is one of the largest gardens in the world. About 7 million bulbs are planted annually. The park is open March–May and costs about $19 for entrance. The various tulips are one of the main draws.


Biltmore Estate Gardens 

The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, is home to a beautiful display of flowers, particularly roses. Landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, the man behind New York City’s Central Park, designed the formal and informal gardens.


Nong Nooch Tropical Garden 

Nong Nooch Tropical Garden is a popular attraction in Thailand. The 500-acre garden is home to a variety of plant life. Cycads, a plant with a woody trunk and stiff evergreen leaves, are among the most prevalent at the garden.
