Best Locations to Go to See Connecticut Flower Fields
Spring time has arrived here in Connecticut! The daffodils and tulips have popped their budding heads out and beauty is all around. Connecticut is known for their vibrant colorful spring flowers and even summer flowers. This is one of my favorite seasons here in the northeast…along with fall and summer! You don’t have to drive far to see Connecticut flowers. They are really everywhere. Many spring bulbs have been planted long ago in open fields or up against a rock fence or around a mailbox or tree. During the months of April and May, the daffodils, tulips, magnolia trees, cherry blossom trees come into bloom! One of our favorite family activities is taking a Sunday drive to some of these Connecticut flower fields to enjoy and marvel at the beauty! Some of the fields are hidden some of them more publicized. Either way they a great way to enjoy Connecticut flower fields!
Also just to note, this list is not comprehensive so if you know of one that I did not list, please let me know!
