On one of the weekends when I was stuck in Nijmegen, I decided to pack bags and head to check out Amsterdam and check out the botanical garden there ...the de hortus
It felt nice to see some flowers that were commonplace in India
Some lovely butterflies
and some not so lovely (to me) cocoons
and some very interesting flowers
some wonderful Fuschia's
The Smyrnium Perfoliatum (for which I managed to get seeds)
And a giant Rhubarb. Would anyone believe that I haven't eaten this Rhubarb thing as yet?
It was a coincidence that I read this post today and it sounds like it isn't easy to grow Rhubarb's in California. But I should try to find it at a store and try making something out of it !
It did feel nice to kick back and enjoy some peace and quiet amidst a bustling city
All the pictures were taken with a small point and shoot Cannon that I could carry around with ease....my little excuse for the not so good quality pictures.
