Postcards from the road #1: The rose garden in Hatanpää Park, Tampere, Finland





Back home after our little journey, I hope to share now some photos with you. These will not be wordy posts. Would you like to know more about the plants seen or the places we visited, please leave a question in the comments and I will try to answer.






On our way from the inland towards the coast and the harbour, our first stop was at the Hatanpää Arboretum in Tampere. The weather was cloudy and it soon started raining, but we enjoyed very much our walk in the scent of the roses.

    1. Kiitos, Gunilla!
      Tämä on meilläpäin huono ruusuvuosi. Oli pakko lähteä vähän kauemmaksi etsimään ihania kukkia. - Nytkin sataa ja on 15 astetta lämmintä. :)
      Mukavaa elokuun alkua!

    1. Hei, Tiina!
      Voi teitä onnekkaita! Täällä sataa melkein kaatamalla.
      Mutta matkalla riitti aurinkoa ja lämmintä. Vielä monta postausta on tulossa. :)
      Mukavaa lomamatkaa teillekin!

    1. Thank you, Diana!
      Yes, I like the architectural style too (in Finland we call it Neo-Renaissance). Actually, I seldom like buildings designed after the 19th century... :)
      Don't mention it! Your blog brings me the necessary monthly dose of beauty.
      Happy August!

  6. What pretty roses ! Che belle rose; e ce ne sono tanti !

    I have never visited the arboretum, although I come from Tampere. Shame on me :D

    Hauska sattumus että postattiin samana päivänä puutarhaposti.

    Buona domenica !
