Postcards #6: Lund University's Botanical Garden, Sweden

First of all: A big thank you hug to you all! Your lovely comments and birthday greetings made me very happy! ♥

And now we continue our journey... I'm almost certain that you will not be surprised to hear that also the Botanical Garden of the University of Lund, in Southern Sweden, not far from Malmö, was a lovely place. :)

There's no admission fee, the Botanical Garden is open for visitors from the early morning until evening and sometimes also guided tours in English are organized. This is a place for relaxing walks, alone or in a good company. There were many people with picnic baskets or books or just sitting and enjoying a pleasant day. The day, actually, was warm and hazy, not the best for taking photos. I'd love to see the garden on a bright spring morning or on a crisp autumn evening or when the first snow falls!

It was difficult to pick only ten photos (the maximum number of photos for each post, decided by me).  There was so much to see, 19th century villas, beautiful greenhouses, and big, old trees...

... lovely roses, flower beds of all colours and many favourite plants of mine...

As you can see in some of the photos, in Sweden it was still cloudy, but as we gradually made our way towards Central Europe, the weather changed to sunny and warm... :)


  1. What a lovely tour of the gardens! The flowers are beautiful, lovely images. Thanks for sharing your visit. Enjoy your day!

  2. Thanks for sharing your visit with us. The gardens are just lovely and your photos are beautiful. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  3. It looks a lovely place to visit, I'm sure you enjoyed it very much x

  4. What a beautiful park and what a beautiful flower!
    Lovely to walk through it.
    Have fun on the transit!

    Love, Gerry

  5. What a lovely garden, I would love take a walk there!
    Have a sunny week, take care...

  6. Well, cloudy is good for better photos but I had to scroll back to see the sky as I was mesmerized by all the flowers. The lupins are amazing, so healthy looking and all the flower beds are well designed.
    It has been so nice to see all the gardens from your trip Sara and I had to smile when I read your 10 photo limit - admirable and something I wish others would consider at times. :-)

  7. What a lovely place to spend the afternoon! The gardens are so beautiful! I love the purple flowers :) xo Karen

  8. Happy Belated Birthday! Sorry that I missed it! Hope you enjoyed it. I don't know how you have managed to restrict yourself to only 10 photos as I am sure that you took many more because the gardens are so beautiful!!! Wonderful flowers. You must have enjoyed it so much. xx

  9. Oh such beauty! And you even found your favourite flowers - lupines! A lovely spot to spend a few hours wandering amidst the flowers...

  10. I seriously love the colors of this post! I would dare say that, this post is an explanation of what tranquility is!

    Well done Sara ♥♥♥

  11. Wonderful colored flower beds, Sara. Interestingly that lupines are in bloom till August. They look as towers between leaves.

  12. I haven't seen the other photos - but these are outstanding - and I think the others must be also. I'd love to see more.

  13. Such a beautiful garden. Thank you for the tour.

  14. Wow so lush and beautiful, here there was much beauty to behold.
    Beautiful pictures, great weekend.

  15. Beautiful gardens. All of the plants look so fresh and pretty. I think I like the snap dragons the most. We don't see them much; though I do have some come up volunteer every year.

  16. What a lovely gardens! How wonderful that it is free! Beautiful photos of the many gorgeous flowers!

  17. Hieno puutarha ja upeat kukat. Aurinkoista viikonloppua sinulle!

  18. Olipa terhakat leijonankidat. Lupiinit kukkii kauniisti.
