Kitchen Garden, poppies, bees, me and my cat. Amsterdam
  • The Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam is one of the oldest botanic gardens in the world. Located in the city centre of the Dutch capital, the garden is a beautiful and intimate place with an unique collection of plants. In the midst of busy city the Hortus offers an oasis of tranquillity, a flowery relief in the urban busyness.

    The garden invites you to walk, observe and enjoy. Admire flowers, smell herbs, learn plant names, just relaxed in the sun - or in the shade or take a coffee at  the most beautiful terrace of Amsterdam, surrounded by exotic container plants: it is all here.

    Today, I’m pleased to add this item to the mix: a boombox garden

    A pretty good new use for a dead boombox, isn’t it?
