Thanks for the memory, a day at the University Museum Utrecht

Two weeks ago on a bright morning, hubby, kids and I went to Utrecht to participate to the “family festival” that was organised by the University Museum of Utrecht .

We cherish this place a lot, our oldest son had his eight years birthday party there two years ago and once in a while we go there to visit their new exhibitions. Kids love it and so do we.

But this time we spent a bit of time inside the museum and enjoyed especially activities outside or in the greenhouse.

While hubby and kids were listening very conscientiously explanations about how to make a delta, I escaped and went with my camera on a journey in the greenhouse. So much beauty everywhere, so much different shapes, colours, structures. I did not know where to start and just went on and click, click, click.

After the greenhouse (and the DIY delta) we had a walk in the garden, the “Oude Hortus” (old garden). Every single time we do this walk, it fulfils me with so much joy and happiness.

Situated in the centre of the city, this garden is one of the best surprises you can have in Utrecht but also one of the most peaceful places you can find there. Take the time to look at the trees, smell the delicate perfum of the roses, breathe.

Utrecht has many treasures, and one of them is situated behind the doors of the University Museum. You just have to push them and let yourself be overwhelmed

May you all have a colourful day.

Love,

    My plant knowledge is limited, but I still loved visiting the Oude Hortis. Even in November it was still stunning. The huge lily pads were one of my favorites! Beautiful photos, as always!
