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.
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.
