my nephew and me visited the botanical garden in berlin on monday. I’ve linked to the site, but if you visit their homepage please don’t get the wrong impression. the garden is beautiful and inspirational, on the contrary of their webpage. The proposal were  zooloigcal garden, ethnological museum or botanical garden and taking the camera and some sketching & drawing material. so we both could do some pictures, with the camera and with pen and paper but we got blown away by the beauty and the diversity of the plants both, in the garden and the glasshouses. we almost argued of having the camera because every second there was a new discovery, coulorful, huge, tiny, wonderful smelling, interesting texture, …. and animals, in the garden we saw a turtle, a squirrel, lot’s of various birds, a field mouse, …here is a small selection of the pictures i made, just an appetizer (more on flickr)

ok, it wasn’t the most sunny summer day, but the weather was quite nice.

yes we saw lot’s of squirrels and they were quite relaxed about visitors, this one starred at us and scratched his bottom as if say “what are you watching at, he!”
