It's August and by now most of the blossoms have pretty much bloomed their season off. That's why I can tell how satisfying it was to edit this collection of my visit at the Loki-Schmidt-Garden – the Botanical Garden of the University Hamburg, looking over and over again at the lushness, the aliveness of the rich greenery of late spring. I've been there only once, but it already is one of my favourite places here in the city I now call mine, Hamburg. It is huge and offers a flora diversity from the the Japanese Gardens to North American prairies to Alpine miniature. For me – one day of visit wasn't enough to touch and smell it all.
Some time soon there's gonna be a Part II to complete the insight to the gardens. For now – click on Marisa Andersons track that I picked to follow along with the luscious green and scroll.
If you're planing a trip to Hamburg some time, take an afternoon for a couple of hour stroll along the green beauties and look up for events on their Facebook page. The entrance is free (!) and they're open 9am to at least 6pm in the summer months, look up for the opening hours in other seasons on the Loki-Schmidt-Garden website. And I'm looking forward for my next visiting opportunity.
