Tips while viewing flowers

•    The flowers are open between 11:00 and 15:00, the warmest part of the day
•    The sun must be out for flowers to open, thus rainy or overcast days are not ideal
•    The day temperature must be at least 18 degrees 
•    Flowers face the sun, thus for viewing and pictures keep your back to the sun
•    Get out of the car and walk around, don’t miss the special smaller species
•    Tread lightly, don’t unnecessarily trample plants, and never pick flowers or bulbs
