Copenhagen Botanical Gardens

It is no surprise that by now Leslie and I have developed a strong interest in plants. Luckily for us, our hotel was just a couple of blocks from Copenhagen’s botanical gardens (we didn’t know until we found it on a map after a couple of days). The garden is a beautiful park, free, and the perfect place to have a picnic, take a walk, or simply lie down and relax. We have been very fortunate to have great weather this whole trip – no rain at all and mostly sunny, which is really unusual for Copenhagen. No es sorpresa que ahora Leslie y yo hemos desarrollado un gran interes en plantas. Por suerte para nosotros nuestro hotel estaba solo a un par de cuadras del Jardin Botanico de Copenhague (no sabiamos hasta que lo descubrimos en el mapa un par de dias despues). El jardin es un parque espectacular, gratis, y el lugar perfecto para hacer un picnic, salir a caminar, o simplemente hecharse y relajarse. Hemos tenido muy buena suerte con el tiempo en este viaje – nada de lluvia y la mayoria de los dias soleados, lo que es inusual para Copenhague.

While John was working, Annie, Leslie and I went to the gardens to check them out and have a quiet afternoon before Leslie’s show. We saw so many different plants, some that we have never seen before, some similar to plants to ones we already knew and some identical to some we actually have in our home. Mientras John trabajaba, Annie, Leslie y yo fuimos al jardin a visitarlo y tener una tarde tranquila antes del show de Leslie. Vimos muchas plantas diferentes, algunas que nunca antes habiamos visto, algunas similares a plantas que ya conocemos, y otras identicas a algunas que tenemos en nuestra casa.

The most impressive thing we found was the greenhouse. We are not talking about a typical little greenhouse – this thing was a castle! The Taj Mahal of greenhouses. Inside it has 5 different microclimates, and since we didn’t have much time, we only walked around their tropical room. It was humid, and HOT! This was the central room and we could climb up to the top of the greenhouse to see everything from above. I was terrified; I don’t do heights very well. La cosa mas impresionante que encontramos fue el invernadero. No estamos hablando de un invernadero tipico – este era un palacio! El Taj Mahal de los invernaderos. Adentro tenia 5 microclimas, y como no teniamos mucho tiempo, solo caminamos por la sala tropical. Era humeda y CALUROSA! Esta era la sala central y se podia subir al tope del invernadero para ver todo desde arriba. Yo estaba asustado; no me gustan las alturas.

It was a great experience and the plants were fabulous. Needless to say, the gardens outside were just as impressive with sections dedicated to different regions of the world. The Danes know how to take advantage of the sunny days so everyone was outside hanging out and enjoying the peaceful environment at the Copenhagen Botanical Gardens! Fue una gran experiencia y las plantas fabulosas. Esta de mas decir que los jardines afuera era tan impresionantes como el invernadero, con secciones dedicadas a diferentes regiones del mundo. Los Daneses saben como sacar ventaja de los dias soleados asi que todo el mundo estaba afuera pasando el rato y disfrutando del tranquilo ambiente que ofrece el Jardin Botanico de Copenhague.
