There is no stopping flowers when they bloom, blossoms when they burst. Unfortunately, people have been stopped from enjoying them these days.
In pandemic times, when so much goes against the grain, some beauties of nature are no longer embraced but kept at bay.
From Japan’s cherry blossom trees, to the endless Keukenhof tulip fields in the Netherlands, to the riot of purple bluebells in the Hallerbos south of Brussels, everything looks its best this spring when conditions are at its worst.
“The flowers are there. Nature refuses to be stopped by anyone,” said Halle mayor Marc Snoeck, who for the second year in a row needs to keep people away from the municipality’s famed woods instead of inviting them in.
