Roses are red, violets are blue…

… do not go to a botanic garden when it’s 40°C outside! Wow, I’m a real poet ;)

But this is great too:

Roses Are Red, That Much Is True. But Violets Are Purple, Not Freaking Blue.

Haha love it :D But back to the topic of this post: Botanic garden. My brother took me to the palm tree garden in Frankfurt this summer where we walked through several green houses and plantations. In one of the green houses I found a little lizard, trying to blend in with all the leaves and rocks.

The carps on the picture below didn’t even try to blend in, I was afraid they would jump into my lap! My brother fed them with cookie crumbles so that I could get a better shot (isn’t that nice? ;)) and they went bananas!! It was the creepiest noise ever when they all jumped over each other above the water surface, breathing in the air like a 80 year old with bronchitis! But you see, it was a win win situation: they got a cookie and I got my picture. And they lived happily ever after :)

  1. haha nice rhymes :D
    The Frankfurt botanical garden looks really great- with animals!
    The shot of the carps is impressive, well done! I like how it shines and all the movement implicit.
