“If I have borne the harshness of winter with you ,

I do deserve the fragrance of your spring.”

The spring is the metaphorical reminder of life itself, astonishingly beautiful yet fleeting. In Kashmir, if the autumn is about the blushing chinars; winter ,a fairyland draped in the white, then pink almond blossoms is surely the melody of spring in the valley .

Spring season is called ‘Sonth’ in Kashmiri, starts from mid March and ends in mid May. In this season the valley is vivid again and the breathtaking views are the manifestation of colours infused in consuming hill topography. The season gives much deserved new life and fragrance to the trees, revive the greenery and bring a pleasant joy in the air .

Kashmir is full of gardens, umpteen such trees which becomes a blooming fest for the tourists in this season but to enjoy this seasons in its true essence, I have these five places are must and you can get yourself soaked in spring here.

1. Tulip Garden, Srinagar

Set against the foothills of the Zabarwan Range on the banks of Dal lake and spread over an area of 80 acres ,the Indra Gandhi Tulip Garden (largest Tulip garden in Asia) with almost 15-20 lakh flowers in more than 65 varieties becomes a must visit place in this season.

These tulips bloom only for a short period of time, consequently it sees a huge footfall of tourists as well as of locals. The tourism department also hosts an Annual tulip festival here, which includes many things like music, food, handicrafts, shopping etc.

2. Badamwari Bagh, Srinagar

If you aren’t been able to witness the famous cherry blossoms of Japan, fear not ,you can get these visuals here in Badamwari. A garden located at the foothills of Kochi-Maraan mountain on 300 kanals of land and has more than a 1000 almond trees.

The flower bloom inside this garden at Shahr-e-khaas heralds the arrival of spring in Kashmir, bidding farewell to the harsh winters. The pink and white flowers on these almond trees are no less than a floral wonderland. This can rightly be called Japanese cherry blossom in India as the number of trees is enormous and presents a visual treat .

3. Pampore mustard fields

Pampore about 12kms from Srinagar is globally known for saffron production but if you are here in the spring season, be prepared to be greeted by the vast and vibrant yellow fields of mustard with abundance of peach trees in bloom.

This Pampore plateau is also known for its wild tulips and in the recent years this place has gained much popularity among the tourists and has become every photographer’s favourite destination for the spring season.

4. Pulwama

It’s about 30Kms from the main city of Srinagar. Like Pampore, this place is blessed with endless mustard fields and the clear blue sky with snow clad mountain range forms the perfect background for a visual treat.

But there is a surprise, if you go inside from the highway, you will find thousands of almond trees lining together, the trees are more than 2000 in numbers and I am sure there isn’t any such kind of bloom of this magnitude as one can witness here but problem is not much is known about this place and it literally isn’t possible to find it without a local with you

5. Kashmir Arts Emporium, Srinagar

I feel myself so blessed to find this place in this season. I was travelling on the flyover near by when I first saw this place and thousand little white flowers blooming on the green grass and the beautiful building behind it .It actually is an art gallery but it’s park is so beautiful with these little flowers.

Huge chinar trees, empty benches, there just is too much poetry around this place, provided you find it empty. If you can, you should pay a visit to this to get more of this spring season and engrave it in your memory.

Kashmir is an all season destination where every season comes with a different colour and a different vibe. If you truly wish to witness heaven on Earth, explore it in all its seasons and if that isn’t possible, don’t miss the spring at least.

2023] 4 Ways To Write The Date In French

1Learn the names of the months. The French names are written above in italic, with the French pronunciation following in parentheses.[1] X Research source An (n) in parentheses represents a nasalized “n.”

January: janvier (zhah(n)-vyay)

February: février (fay-vree-yay)

March: mars (mahrs)

April: avril (ah-vreel)

May: mai (meh)

June: juin (zhwa(n))

July: juillet (zhwee-eh)

August: août (oot)

September: septembre (sehp-tah(n)br)

October: octobre (ohk-tohbr)

November: novembre (noh-vah(n)br)

December: décembre (day-sah(n)br)

2Learn how to write the date. In French, the date is written in “day month year” order, with no commas separating each term. Note that the month is not capitalized. Here are a couple examples (plus the abbreviated version):

4 août 1789 (4/8/1789)

15 mars 2023 (15/3/2023)


3Say the date out loud. To read the date out loud, add le to the beginning of the date, and read all dates as cardinal numbers (“five” instead of “fifth”).[2] X Research source Here are the previous examples written as you would say them. Study how to count in French if you are not familiar with reading French numbers:

“le quatre août mille sept cent quatre-vingt-neuf”

“le quinze mars deux mille quatorze”

Every month is a masculine noun, so the article used is always le.

4Learn the exception for the first of the month. When talking about the first day of the month, use “1er” in writing, and say “premier” when speaking aloud. This is the only date that uses ordinal numbers (“first”) instead of cardinal (“one”). For example:[3] X Research source

1er avril (1/4), spoken “le premier avril”

Writing and Pronouncing the Days of the Week

1Learn the days of the week. Refer to the list above to learn the days of the week in French, along with how they are pronounced.[4] X Research source Note that the days of the week are not capitalized in French.

Monday: lundi (luh(n)-dee)

Tuesday: mardi (mahr-dee)

Wednesday: mercredi (mehr-kruh-dee)

Thursday: jeudi (zhuh-dee)

Friday: vendredi (vah(n)-druh-dee)

Saturday: samedi (sahm-dee)

Sunday: dimanche (dee-mah(n)sh)

2Write and pronounce the date, including the day of the week. This is identical to writing the date, with the day of the week added to the front of the phrase. Here’s an example:[5] X Research source

English: Wednesday, the 5th of June

French (written): mercredi, le 5 juin 2001 (formal)

French (written): mercredi 5 juin 2001 (normal)

French (spoken): mercredi cinq juin deux mille un

French (spoken): le mercredi cinq juin deux mille un (eventually if you want to describe a precise day)

3Know when to use articles. Every day of the week is a masculine noun, so the article le is used. For example, “Le samedi est le sixième jour.” means “Saturday is the sixth day.” However, when you are talking about an event that occurred on a specific day, know the difference between le samedi and samedi:[6] X Research source

Samedi, je dîne au restaurant. = On Saturday, I dine at a restaurant. (A single event.)

Le samedi, je dîne au restaurant. = Every Saturday, I dine at a restaurant. (A repeated event.)

2Ask for the day of the week. To ask for the day of the week, say Quel jour sommes-nous aujourd’hui? or Quel jour est-on aujourd’hui?[8] X Research source

3State today’s date in a sentence. If someone asks you one of the above questions, be prepared to answer:[9] X Research source

To answer with “Today is Monday, November 15th,” write Aujourd’hui, c’est le lundi 15 novembre.

To answer “Today is Sunday,” say Aujourd’hui, c’est dimanche. or simply C’est dimanche.

4Use the preposition en. Use this word to write “in July” (en juillet), “in 1950” (en 1950), “in April 2011” (en avril 2011), and so forth.[10] X Research source This phrase can go at the front or the end of a sentence. For example:

J’ai un rendez-vous chez le médecin en mars. = I have an appointment with the doctor in March.

J’ai vécu à Paris en 1990. = I lived in Paris in 1990.

Community Q&A

QuestionIs 05/08/17 August 5, 2023?Community AnswerYes. As the article says, the date is written in “day month year” order.

QuestionHow can I make my keyboard French?Community AnswerGo to the language settings of your computer and choose “French.” Your keyboard should then have an option to change it to French.
