Memories 2015: The Linnaeus Garden, Uppsala



It's snowing, but not in a picturesque way. :) Let's escape back to July... 

In my first post about the Linnaean Garden, you can find a brief description of the garden (and some of these photos, cropped differently).

  2. Voi miten ihanasti kesä oikein vyöryy päälle näistä huikeista kuvistasi! Tädyke ja ukonhattu lumoavat sinellään, ohdake lilallaan. Niin kaunista!

    PS
    Lyhensin nimeäni :) Oikeassa elämässä olen Helmi-Riitta, mutta ehkä riitta riittää :)) Helpompaa muunkielisille!

    1. Oi, kiitos! Ajattelin ensin laittaa kuvat pienempinä, mutta sitten huomasin tarvitsevani hieman kesävyörytystä.
      Toivotko meidän suomalaisten kutsuvan sinua Helmi-Riitaksi vai riitaksi? :)

    2. :)) Ihan sama! Minulla on paljonkin lempinimiä: jatta, pipsa, malla... :) Voit valita!

      It was a happy visit, even though the light was a little bit uninspiring. It would be lovely to be able to visit such places in different times of the year... and day. xx

  10. Kauniita kuvia, jotka herättävät kesän minussa. Ihanat nuo puuportaat kivien koristamana.

    1. Kiitos, Kruunu Vuokko!
      Otin tuon porraskuvan myös inspiraatioksi. Meidän pihassa olisi yksien portaiden paikka. Aion reunustaa raput laventelilla, jos kasvit vain selvisivät hengissä vuodenvaihteen pakkasista. :)

      Many thistles do look very pretty. I once tried cultivating a species of native Cirsium as pot plants - the result wasn't very good. :)

  13. Harmaa keskipäivä ja kauniit kukat sivullasi luovat mielen sopukoihin outoja vastakohtia. Pääsisikö niiden avulla irti kaamoksesta?

    1. Kiitos, Kyllimarjaana!
      Tänäänkin on hyvin harmaa päivä, mutta olen alkanut pitää tammi-helmikuusta enemmän sen jälkeen kun aloin ostaa leikkotulppaaneja. :)

  15. Tuo on varmasti ihana paikka! Minäkin tahtoisin joskus käydä. Saiko tuolta muuten ostaa jotain kasveja? Onko tänä kesänä tiedossa joku reissu taas teillä :)

    1. Kiitos, Sametti Hortensia! Pitäisit varmaan Linnén museosta ja puutarhasta. Kasveja siellä ei ollut myynnissä, mutta myymälässä (kirjoja, tekstiilejä, yms.) sai kaupan päälle pieniä Linneansk sommarblandning -siemenpusseja. :)

  18. Upea tuo puutarha ja ihania kasveja! Kasvit näyttävät olevan niitä vanhoja lajikkeita joita on ollut ennen vanhaan kartanoiden pihapiirissä? Upea pyhiinvaelluspaikka ja taas niin kauniit kuvat.

    1. Kiitos, Teresa!
      Kyllä, puutarhassa kasvatetaan vain lajeja, joita siellä tiedetään viljellyn jo Linnén aikana.
      Oi, Ruotsissa olisi niin paljon ihania puutarhoja ja puistoja. No, eihän se onneksi kovin kaukana ole. :)
      Ihanaa viikonloppua!

  19. Oh yes, in July the garden is at its peak with colour and fragrance. A nice journey back with you Sara, do you find the butterflies like the lantana in your garden?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thank you, Judith!
      Lantanas are pretty and we should definitely have more plants for butterflies in our garden. However, they should be wintered indoors here and I dedicate my efforts for trying to keep alive the plants I really love, like the Wisterias. :)

  28. These are such simple, common flowers that make the garden wonderful. Easy to grow, pleasing, and simple. I need to remember to plant more simple flowers and forget the exotics.
