(Every Tuesday, I will be featuring a photograph from a place I have gone to, a photograph which I believe will inspire others to go out and see the world for themselves. For this week, Why Travel Tuesday features the University of the Philippines' very own spring season—the yearly bloom of Diliman's beautiful sunflowers.)
Some of the travelers I met find it weird, downright funny, that I have never experienced all the four seasons of the year. They understand, of course. I'm from a tropical country where it's summer all year round. In fact, it was only last year that I got to experience fall and winter, which, in the end, left me with spring. I haven't really experienced real spring. But I like to think that I have. Every end of March, the beginning of spring for more temperate countries, the University of the Philippines gets more colorful as sunflowers begin to bloom, lining the main avenue entrance to the school's Diliman campus. It is definitely worth a visit, especially for tropical folk like me. Being there, you realize that at least even if you don't know what spring feels like, you certainly know what it looks like.

Spring, be it "real" spring or just "UP sunflowers" spring, is a beautiful time of the year. Agree? Do share your colorful spring photos below!
