czech-rep_almondIt’s not only fruit trees, Road Trips Gardeners. Some nut trees have spectacular blossoms, too.

Consider a jaunt to Hustopece in the Czech Republic in late March to see the largest almond orchard in Central Europe in bloom.

An observation deck stands in the middle of an orchard on Hustopece Hill – and its opening in 2012 was associated with the premiere of the Almond and Wine Festival. The event takes place in the spring (March 28, 2015, this year) when the flood of white and pink flowers of the almond trees glistens in the distance and accentuates their beauty — an almond trail leads from the town to the observation deck.
