Although the calendar tells us that spring is here, in many cities throughout the world residents and visitors rely on the blooming of spring flowers to signal the true beginning of the season.

In Seoul, Korea, spring's arrival is also a time of many flower festivals that feature spectacular cherry blossoms and forsythias.

According to Arirang News, the golden forsythia flowers are an iconic representation of spring in Korea, as they are usually the first flower to signal the arrival of the season.

The Yeoido Spring Flower Festival, which is being held through April 17, is one of the country's largest flower festivals. It is known for featuring hundreds of cherry blossoms.

"For a few short days every spring, the island erupts into a riot of pale pink blossoms, and some four million people are expected to visit," according to

Weather experts say that the flowering trees will be in full bloom on April 17. Botanists say global warming may be to blame for earlier than usual bloom times in Korea and other parts of the world.

Whether you're lucky enough to see these flowers in person or not, sending a spring flower bouquet to someone is a great way to lift their spirits and help them welcome the new season.
