There are a lot of fun things to pay attention to and observe while you’re out and about traveling, and plants and vegetation can be high up there on the list, especially if you have even a small interest in things like horticulture, farming, or landscape arts. Just like some people can appreciate buildings and architecture, others can appreciate wild foliage, trees, and floral arrangements!
So a few things to let your eyes browse over (or maybe potentially even focus on) include tropical varieties of plants, awesome landscaping, the biggest and baddest in the vegetable kingdom, things that might interest the farmer’s eye, and flowers in bloom.
Where there’s heat, there will be tropical plants, and those are some of the most fun to explore. Perhaps because they have a nod to the exotic or colorful persuasions, tropical plants get a lot of attention, and make often make beautiful photograph subjects as well. There are tropical areas in the U.S. and in many other tourist locations around the world, so don’t hesitate to seek them out if you have a green thumb or an interest in photography.
Seeking out cool landscaping is another fun thing to do when you’re out on vacation. There are some places in the world to go simply because of how the environment is arranged. Just the act of being around sculpted, living plants can be a very freeing experience. This is taking stopping to smell the roses to the next level. Often, great landscaping is present in conjunction with other cool places (like historical buildings for example), so you get more for your money in that regard as well.
The Biggest and Baddest
Sometimes you want to look for extreme examples of nature as well, as part of your travels. Consider visiting the world’s oldest trees, for example, or the site of the world’s largest pumpkin patch. Seeing things in the biggest format possible is one way to appreciate the balance of nature on a very interesting level, and it reminds you of the magic of the earth’s resources.
The Farmer’s Eye
If you’re into farming or gardening, visiting plant and vegetation-heavy locations might give you some ideas about how to care for your own crops and gardens. Especially if it’s part of some kind of tour, you can expect to be inspired about how to make your own presentations and results better.
Flowers In Bloom
If you go to certain places in certain seasons, you can see some amazing flowers in bloom as well. One things that comes to many people’s minds right away are the tulip fields in Holland. There’s no place even remotely like that in the rest of the world, and that’s why it’s such an attraction for people who appreciate unique natural occurrences.
