Spring has almost arrived in Denmark. Buds are appearing on branches, tulips are nearly ready to burst forth, and the country seems to be letting out a collective exhale… We have made it through the darkest days of winter and the light of day is beginning to stretch longer and longer and with it comes the hope and expectation of another glorious Spring.
Earlier this week while a chilly rain pattered against the windowpanes, we escaped to the warm and gloriously green Copenhagen Botanical Gardens. Our visit was such a nice mid-week treat and we wondered out loud why we had not come to visit before now. Located right in the middle of Copenhagen, the Botanical Gardens are a quiet little oasis that are open year round. I have a feeling we will be stopping in regularly from now on and we highly recommend a visit. If you are interested in visiting, be sure to check the Botanical Gardens website for opening hours and special exhibitions.
I hope our little trip will bring a fresh touch of spring to your day…
Is there a special place you go to escape the rain? Perhaps you have a Botanical Gardens near you waiting to be discovered?
