narcissusSpring is a beautiful time to visit the Lake Geneva region of Switzerland.

Wild narcissi are in bloom along the Montreux Riviera from April to June, transforming the meadows above Montreux and Vevey into white, perfumed landscapes. The flowers appear as soon as the snow melts, and the white flowers of the narcissi (narcissus radiiflorus) are locally known as “May Snow.” Go online for information about designated paths for visitors, guided tours and a forecast for peak viewing.

The Tulip Festival is underway in Morges through May 5, 2019. The display of more than 120,000 tulips of 300 varieties and bloom in succession is found in the Parc de l’Indépendance on the shores of Lake Geneva.
