Yesterday the sun came out after a week long rain fest here so we took advantage of it by biking to the botanical gardens near our house. We even got in free because some nice lady handed us two tickets that she didn't need. There were so many people there and it was a great time to go. All the tulips were blooming and everything smelled so sweet! It was a nice big area with sections for blooming flowers, flowering trees, Alpine forest, herb garden, desert plants (with many xeriscape plants we were familiar with from Denver) and greenhouse with different regions of the world covered. Everyone here is a little bit obsessed with nature and flowers, which is really nice to see. Anyway, below you'll see a few pictures from our excursion... as you can see Greg experimented a bit with the macro feature on our new camera. Enjoy!
