Apple blossom at Lake Constance
The landscape around Lake Constance is bathed in a sea of white and pink blossoms during springtime: The apple blossom season fascinates both holiday guests and locals each spring. The beginning of the apple blossom season depends on a number of factors. The most important factor is certainly the weather. If the winter is short and April is sunny and warm, apple blossoms can bloom as early as early or mid May. If the winter stays longer, the blooming season can be delayed by up to 3-4 weeks. But even when the apple blossoms bloom and the trees shine resplendently in white and pink, no one can say for sure how long the blaze of color will last. A rain shower with strong winds can be enough to end the beautiful spectacle of nature.
Iris blossom in Eriskircher Ried
In the neighbouring village of Eriskirch is the much visited Eriskircher Ried nature reserve. From mid May to early June, Eriskircher Ried blooms with the most opulent blaze of colour imaginable: Thousands of Siberian irises coat the meadow of the Eriskircher Ried nature reserve an amazing shade of blue, which is interspersed with vibrant dabs of yellow of the water iris. The Siberian iris populations are a highly endangered species, of which the populations at Lake Constance are the most beautiful in the whole of Germany. The name is derived from the spreading of the species, reaching right up to West Siberia. It is, however, actually a domestic wildflower plant, which wasn't introduced by humans! The iris blossom can be seen particularly well from the road leading to the Eriskirch Strandbad outdoor bathing facility. But please restrain your enthusiasm a little and keep on the roads and pathways, even as a photographer.
