Today I want to tell you about the visit to the Botanical Gardens, Amsterdam. When I
visited Botanical Gardens (The Hortus Botanicus) in Amsterdam it was warm and cloudy April day. The Gardens are situated in a city center.
In 17th century the garden had a
geometrical arrangement of rectangular or circular plant beds. In
the 19th century the neat, straight paths were transformed into
serpentine lines along which visitors were shown a great variety of plants and landscapes.
Now there is great variety of trees, shrubs, perennials and bulb plants.
center of The Hortus Botanicus is a semicircle, in that day it was full of blooming tulips in pots.
was a small pond. Next to it I saw rhododendrons, anemones, Leucothoe fontanesiana, giant rhubarb.
In a distance I've found birds
that were looking for something on the path. These were starlings or blackbirds ( I'm not sure).
The cut trunks were set along the path, apparently for tired
are many plants and trees growing in greenhouses of the Hortus. Some
plant species are very rare, they have played a role in the history
of the garden.
learned the plant beds behind the Palm House hold many wild rose
species. Unfortunately I couldn't see rose blooming in early spring.
Here are more muscari, heather, bluebells, hellebore, they were very nice and fresh in that day.
The duck strolled near the cafe where I had lunch :))
I was in the Botanical Gardens several years ago. Remembering those days, I think that we all did not appreciate the fact that we could go anywhere, without restrictions. How one very small virus changed our lives. I really hope the pandemic will end this year.
Happy spring days to you all!

Beautiful photos! It must have been so lovely to visit Botanical Garden in Netherland. Thank you for showing the photos.
Yes, how a little virus can change the whole world. I hope it will end this year too, but I fear it will take more time. How dangerus the world have become...
Marit, you're right - virus changed the world.Delete
But people want to live the normal life and I'm waiting for the better times.
Have a nice weekend.
Botanical gardens are inviting places to visit, always filled with beauty, tranquility and much to interest everyone - and they are great for birders like me! I dream for the day when we can move around again freely.ReplyDelete
The botanical garden provides a great opportunity for bird lovers, David, you are right. I suppose the blackbirds I saw there caught my attention because they were gathering branches for their nests.Delete
It is amazing place!ReplyDelete
It's true Anne.Delete
Have a nice day!
Que maravilla Nadezda, las fotos son espectaculares y el jardín precioso. Besos.ReplyDelete
Si, Lola el jardin es maravilloso.Delete
For your wonderful photos it must be a spectacular place.ReplyDelete
I have already visited Amsterdam but I never went to the Botanical Garden, there was little time available and we decided to visit the Keukenhof garden.
We are all wishing to be able to do our walks again and a normal life and without fear of the accursed virus.
Take care and be well
I'm glad I could visit this garden in our 'normal' life Maria.Delete
Now we have to hope this life will be back.
What a great post and beautiful spring photos! Especially now, when the longing for a normal life and unlimited travelsReplyDelete
is so great! I dream of a trip to Amsterdam, so I am glad that I was able to visit this botanical garden thanks to you.
Thanks for sharing!
Stay healthy, my dear!
Hugs and greetings!
I want you to visit Amsterdam as soon as possible when we defeat this damn virus.
Hope you have a good time there.
Agradeço os votos que formula.ReplyDelete
Penso que não há dúvidas que a ave negra de bico amarelo é um melro, também muito comuns em Portugal.
A natureza é sempre digna de admiração seja ao nível das plantas seja no que toca às aves.
Abraço de amizade.
I agree these are blackbirds Juvenal Nunes.Delete
Thank you for stopping by!
Un precioso lugar para visitar. Los jardines botánicos me encantan. Feliz tarde de domingo.ReplyDelete

Visitar estos Lugares da alegría amiga. Hay mucha vida y color en ellos para recrearde mirando las preciosas flores. Gracias por compartirlo Nadezda.ReplyDelete
Buen domingo. Cuídate.
Me da gusto saber que te gusto el jardín Laura.Delete
I think I have been to Amsterdam three times, but never realized that there could be a botanical garden in city center. I guess I have to go once more, when the restrictions ease. :DReplyDelete
You're right Tistou, you have to go there again, the Botanical Gardens deserves this.Delete
Botanical Garden in the city centre, what a fabulous retreat from the hustle and bustle. Love your picture display Nadezda.ReplyDelete
Glad you liked these photos, Alistair.Delete
It's a really quiet place in Amsterdam.
Boa tarde minha amiga, fotos maravilhosas.ReplyDelete
La semana feliz!
How nice to be with you again after my long absence.
Yesterday I came back from the hospital. It wasn't Covid -19
I am delighted with your report and photos from the Botanical Gardens in Amsterdam. I miss traveling and beautiful spring nature very much.
Hugs and greetings.
I'm glad you're better and will continue blogging.
I wish you to recover soon and to enjoy spring time.
Beautiful pictures, Nadezda! A Botanical garden in the middle of the city is wonderful.ReplyDelete
Enjoy the spring!
Yes, it is Tania.Delete
have a nice Thursday.
Hienot kuvat kasvitieteellisestä puutarhasta.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you liked the photos of the Botanic garden, AnemoneDelete
This looks very beautiful, Nadezda, it must have been a lovely trip!ReplyDelete
Wishing you a wonderful easter with much sun,
Sure your trip to this Garden will be interesting Ida.Delete
Have a nice Thursday.
I last visited Amsterdam during December. Everything was covered in snow, so the idea of a botanical garden did not cross my mind. Here in London we have the London Physic Garden ("Physic" is an old word for "medicine" but I was surprised to find that near Regents Park medicinal plants are grown near the Royal College of Physicians. I was surprised, since the gardens look like the gardens of ordinary houses and it is only when you take a close look that you see what they are. I must take a look next time I pass it - which I do quite often. Oh, you are quite right about how little we appreciated being able to travel freely. Many times in this rather cold Spring, I have wished we could go to Malaga, Spain, for a few days. It is always so nice at this time of year.ReplyDelete
I was in Regent Park too, Jenny, and didn't know there was a Physics Garden. It would be interesting if you could show this in your post.Delete
The year turned last month when our lives changed, and so it goes, Jenny. I would also like to go, but the borders are closed.
What a wonderful place, Nadezda!ReplyDelete
I'm visiting blogs to wish a happy Easter, but it looks like you will celebrate it in May. :)
At least I can wish you happy and sunny spring days. Stay safe and well!
This year the orthodox Easter is late, in May. You're right Sara.Delete
Thanks for your kind wishes, here spring is not as warm as was expected ;-(
Wishing you and your family an Easter filled with joy and hope.
Lucja, thanks for your sincere wishes, we'll celebrate Easter in May.Delete
Hugs and happy Easter!
I wish you a happy Easter
A big hug
Happy Easter to you too Maria.Delete
I am amazed by the neatness of this garden, as well as the collection of plants it has. It's great to have a vacation in this Botanical garden in Amsterdam Holland.ReplyDelete
Have a nice day
I agree, Himawan Sant it's great.Delete
Bom dia Nadezda. Desejo uma Feliz Páscoa com muita saúde, paz para você e sua família.ReplyDelete
Nice memories about garden visit. I love Holland way to design their land. Take a look at the windows in their houses, each one is beautifully decorated with different plants, flowers and other objects, and each of them is unique
Irina, I also noticed that every free space is used to decorate the house, veranda, porch, stairs, even a bicycle. The people of the Netherlands love nature and grow many plants, especially in parks.Delete
