Hortus Botanicus Part II
The Amsterdam Botanical Garden, Hortus Botanicus, has two large greenhouses, one the 100 year old Palm House, and one a much more recent glasshouse with tropical, sub-tropical and desert climates. Many of the more unusual plants at the gardens are located in these greenhouses.
We had that beautiful spring day here, with the temperature approaching 10°C and snow melting off the roof fast. A glorious but very unseasonable early spring day. But I fear we'll pay the price with ice and water in basements. Hard to miss enjoying the warm temperatures though!
