Alpine Flowers in Switzerland

2 Comments

Early May last year we drove from Lake Como, Italy to Tashe, Switzerland.
As the crow flies, these areas were so close on a map,
but of course the roads did not go that way.  Tashe is the town you can drive to,
then one takes a train to Zermatt at the base of the Matterhorn.

The first flowers I saw to photograph were in a cemetery!

It was quite beautiful to see that people cared about those who had passed away.

Later in the afternoon, we took a hike on the mountain above the town of Zermatt,
and saw fields of wild crocus.

The next day we drove up an alpine valley, saw many wondrous waterfalls and
some other wildflowers whose name I did not know.

  1. I love wild crocuses ! I haven’t seen them so far, but I saw some snow drops 🙂 Spring is around the corner

  2. Since you moved farther north, are you seeing flowers bloom a little later than before?
