Denmark is known for its forests, meadows and agriculture, but most of all, it is knows for its wild vibrant flowers. Most of the flowers are in the backdrop of its countryside and castles. Spring time is the best time to be in Denmark, as the blooming season starts with the poppies, daisies, forget-me-nots, and red clovers.

  7. Funchal in Madeira says:

    One of the biggest flower festivals is held in Funchal, the capital city of Madeira, two weeks after Easter every year.

    During the 5 days leading up to the Grand Parade on the Sunday, the streets of Funchal are decorated with flower displays of all types and sizes. The Sunday Parade itself is a 4 hour spectacular of floats, dancing groups and bands – all with a common theme, the flowers of Madeira.

    For anyone who hasn’t seen it, I can highly recommend this event.

    The provisional dates for the next festival are 18th to 22nd April 2012.
