That's funny, but springs in Turkey vary in terms of rainfall—some are wetter, others less, and some are totally rainless. Yet nobody remembers a spring without flowers. Sweeps of red, yellow, blue, and white stretch along kilometres, providing a sheer delight for the eyes of those who hit the road.

On condition that you travel by your own car, or ride a bike, you have more freedom to stop here and there to enjoy the colourful sceneries of spring. However, it also happens that fascinated tourists make drivers stop their bus to capture surrounding beauty in a snapshot.

Natural flower show starts around mid-April and continues throughout the end of spring.

You'll bump into a flowered patch of land wherever you go. However, the greatest intensity is observed in such regions as Thrace and Marmara, Mediterranean, Aegean, Central Anatolia, and the Black Sea region, especially eastern areas, rich in springs and lush vegetation.
