The wind is blowing fiercely but the sun has finally arrived here in Aarhus, Denmark, so I decided to walk to the botanical garden to enjoy the afternoon. It’s only a few blocks from here and I love visiting gardens whenever I travel.
One of my favorite parts about botanical gardens is I get the chance to see the local flora and learn about the different habitats in each place.
I started with the outdoor gardens which are lined with stone paths that go in and out and around each of the garden beds. The main paths are dirt and small gravel crush and wide enough to easily walk or push a stroller. It’s only the paths that go into the beds that are small and rocky.
The beds are interspersed with large rocks and some even have small streams trickling through them. You can really get up close to many of the plants.
Of the many plants I saw, some had such vibrant colors or delicate blooms that I had to take a photo.
And of course, I love my succulents, so when I saw these in bloom, I snapped a quick pic. I have some of these in my window sill or gardens and I have never seen them bloom!
My only complaint about the gardens were that it was hard to determine which plant tag went with which plant and sometimes the tags were missing entirely – as a result, I haven’t been able to identify all of the plants that I took photos of, but I hope you enjoy them nonetheless.
