gardens of Copenhagen

I was fortunate to get to spend 3 days in Copenhagen last week, on my way to a conference.  There were many things I loved about that beautiful city, not the least of which were the gardens of course!

As a gardener, I don’t tend to take close-up pictures of plants anymore.  I’m more interested in trying to capture overall features of the design – I love layouts which include areas with specific themes or colour schemes, long views lined with simple hedges, and where certain focal points or beautiful buildings are either framed or revealed over time as you move through a garden.  And by “capture”, let me be clear that I mean “capture” in order to retain my memories of the experience and to inspire new ideas in my own garden, not “capture” as in the action of a real photographer creating an award-winning photograph.

With that said, here are a few of my favourite views (you can click on them to enlarge)!

Gardens of the Royal Library
