The Botanical Gardens

After a really long time, I finally went back to the botanical gardens in Ghent. It's unbelievable how beautiful and inspiring this is for me. I adore plants for as long as I remember. I always used to see my grandpa working in his garden (which he still does everyday) since I was a little girl and I was always fascinated by it.


The botanical gardens are a place where all these different kinds of plants come together. All those special plants and flowers that you wouldn't normally see when you just walk out of your house. I can walk out there for hours and enjoy every second of it. I feel so truly happy when I'm surrounded by all these beautiful creatures. I took hundreds of pictures and made little sketches in my notebook, trying not to forget little details.

I felt so motivated after being there. I think it's wonderful how nature can have this big of an impact on me. I felt
so productive, started drawing when I was back home, reading and writing. This feeling is amazing.

By seeing all of this, I feel so happy and grateful. I'm grateful that I'm able to see these beautiful plants and flowers with my own eyes. I'm grateful that I'm able to make pictures and hold these memories. I'm grateful that I'm able to write and learn about it. I will hold on this for as long as I can

  2. Super ton blog, j'adore :) Je visite depuis quelques années les jardins botaniques, je dois l'avoué comme toi où c'est là que je me sens le mieux, ce calme, cette sérénité, cette beauté, ces connaissances mises à disposition, cela me rend encore plus amoureux du monde végétal que je ne le suis :D Je suis jardinier-botaniste de métier et j'espère un jour pouvoir travailler dans un jardin botanique ou carrément créer un jour le mien ^^ bizz kleiiiniii (Le Petit Coin Botanique)
