We went to the Tulip Festival in Morges to see the spectacular array of tulips in bloom. The Fête de la Tulipe is an annual festival held in April-May in the Park de l'Independence on the shores of Lake Geneva. The gardens are tended by apprentice gardeners from all over Switzerland who compete to create the best display. It was truly something special to see!
Spring also sees the movement of the cows back up into the mountains. We had a Mexican standoff with some cows on the way down from Mont Tendre! We also encountered a herd in the Valley de Joux, sounding very Swiss with their cow bells :)
