Yesterday at Bonn’s Botanical Garden, the crocuses were at centre stage. Glorious! Spring has indeed sprung. Under a brilliant sun, the crocuses shared the limelight with snowdrops and other spring flowers. What a lovely setting for an al fresco lunch, and there were a few who were enjoying sandwiches and pizza. The Botanical Garden never fails to lift my spirits, and it is, for me, Bonn’s most attractive feature. And what’s more, it’s free! On Sundays there’s a minuscule charge and Saturdays it’s closed.
If you haven’t had lunch on a lovely sunny day at Bonn’s Botanical Garden surrounded by spring (or other seasonal) flowers, you’re missing one of the best bits about studying at Bonn Uni and living in Bonn. Go now and enjoy these spring ephemerals at their peak.
