The Botanical Gardens in Gothenburg

My best friend and I visited the Botanical Gardens in Gothenburg this weekend, and I simply must share the beauty I saw! Every tree is flowering – a stunning sight of pink cherry blossoms and powerful rhododanderon bushes.

Windflowers are in full bloom in the woods and dance around the trees like virgins in white dresses. The feeling is completed by the Spring bird’s serenade in trees and bushes. Natures stunning beauty in the Springtime makes me feel so humbled that I can barely describe it in words :) We also took some pictures in Slottskogen – I live nearby and am very grateful for that!

In my previous post about Gothenburg, I forgot to mention the Botanical Gardens, which are a must-see for all of you who are interested in gardens. The picture of the red cottage is taken inside the Botanical Gardens, which almost looks like it could be out in the countryside, even though it’s in the middle of town. Definitely worth a visit when you come to Gothenburg in other words :)

Enjoy the rest of your week! :)

    Oh Maria,
    thank you so very much for sharing your photos of the botanical gardens in Gotheburg. Nature looks still so wilde and preserved although the gardens appear to be really well cared for.

    Ja, Botaniska får ett besök av mig och dottern varje år. De senaste åren har vi försökt att pricka in när Näsduksträdet blommar. Är så häftigt!
    Tack för dina fina hälsningar hos mig. De värmer gott varje gång :)

    Maria dear,

    Your blog is absolutely wonderful. I live in Minneaapolis, Minnesota USA where Swedish settlers came and have influenced our state. I so love that little white cottage in your pictures because it reminds me of a little church near us.

    THANK YOU for visiting me today via Karena. She has been so kind to feature me! And I am sorry that I do not have Twitter or FB links on my blog…I don’t know how to do it!!!!!!!

    Do come again; it is so lovely to connect with the world. Anita

    Åh vad roligt att du också ska på eventet till helgen:)
    Antar att du tillhör inredningsgruppen medan jag ska tillhöra matgruppen, men söndagen är ju gemensam så då ses vi ju om vi vill, eller hur:)
    Jag känner inte en kotte där förutom Monika Ahlberg så det känns lite nervöst.

    Hi Miria,
    Thanks for visiting me and your kind words about my blog. I don’t have a FC or Twitter yet.
    I like your blog too. My husband is from Norway, so I am very interested in Scandinavian culture, lifestyle, etc.
    These pictures from the Gothenburg gardens are very pretty. I especially like the second one with the carpet of wild flowers. So beautiful!
