Let's face it...for most folks reading this, Spring seems to be long off. Maybe it is, but part of getting through these days of snow, ice, rain, fog, and cold is just being able to take a mental trip to a more pleasant place! That's why many of us spend so much time during the Winter months reading seed catalogs, working on arts and craft projects, and reading books. Just taking small mind trips to a more enjoyable place. Well, today I'm gonna help!
Valley of Flowers
The Valley of Flowers is an outstandingly beautiful high-altitude Himalayan valley that has been acknowledged as such by renowned mountaineers and botanists in literature for over a century and in Hindu mythology for much longer. Its ‘gentle’ landscape, breathtakingly beautiful meadows of alpine flowers and ease of access complement the rugged, mountain wilderness for which the inner basin of Nanda Devi National Park is renowned. Valley of flower is splashed with colour as it bloomed with hundreds different beautiful flowers, taking on various shades of colours as time progressed. Valley was declared a national park in 1982, and now it is a World Heritage Site. The locals, of course, always knew of the existence of the valley, and believed that it was inhabited by fairies.
It's nice enough that we can have coffee on the patio. Even have a little sunshine!
