A Heartwarming Inspiration From Georgia

I went to the Botanical Garden in the middle of Copenhagen. I came to experience the quietness, the beautiful palm house and the exotic flowers. I ended up in a several hours long conversation with a stranger from Georgia, US.

There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.
– William Butler Yeats

The Botanical Garden is part of the Natural History Museum of Denmark, at the University of Copenhagen.

Thou­sands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized peo­ple are begin­ning to find out that going to the moun­tains is going home; that wild­ness is a neces­sity; and that moun­tain parks and reser­va­tions are use­ful not only as foun­tains of tim­ber and irri­gat­ing rivers, but as foun­tains of life.
– John Muir, Our National Parks, 1901

    • Hi Alen. I had to look it up to find the author and the exact wording of the quote though I remembered the main message.
      It’s not hard to find motives in the Botanical Garden.
      When I was a teenager I bought eight postcards with watercolour paintings of the Palm House and framed them.
      The Palm House is fascinating. The white construction around the fragile glass, frames all sorts of plants and colourful flowers in the most delicate way.

  1. Some of my best memories are of conversations with people I’ve never met before! Love those Botanical gardens, they remind me of Kew in London.
