Today, after classes, I went to the Linné Tradgarden, just for Jessica.  Also, because I wanted to see it, and because I live mere blocks away, but it is really very much a thing that combines the two things Jessica and I both love—History and Plants.

The gardens hold about 1,500 species of plants, arranged according to how Carl Linné himself arranged them in the early 18th Century.

Annuals:

Very Structured, Not So Much a Profusion of Flowers

A couple of his ponds, arranged according to the type of habitant the plants needed:

The River Pond!

And Linnaeus himself! (Or a picture from the museum!)

Tomorrow Erik and Birgitta are coming to visit me again in Uppsala, along with Ingvar and Kajsa.  It should be a lot of fun to see them one more time!

Til tomorrow!

P.S.  Happy Birthday, Jessica!!!
