botanical garden in linz and vienna (0 comments)
so i've been to two botanical gardens by chance lately. first one was in linz
where there were also butterflies in the tropical section of the garden. it was one of the first few warm and sunny days after the winter, so a lot of people where there, albeit it was during the week. i've already been to the garden the weekend before, but didn't have my new camera with me. but this time i brought it with me - yeah.
it turned out, behaviour of a full-frame sensor is totally different to my old cropped sensor of my canon eos 350d. so there will be much to be learned in the near (and maybe far) future until pics turn out the way i want them. but i guess that's the fun in it, right?
although most of the colourful and blooming stuff was inside the tropical house, there were a lot of flowers that just started to grow and get revived by the warm sun too. yet, most of the parts of the garden still were brown and seemed lifeless.
i also met the one-eyed cat again, that i've already seen on my last visit. unfortunately i didn't see the second cat that seems to be living in the house that is also the garden's cafe. but the one-eyed one was glad to have found someone who will pet it extensively. well, i was glad to take that part.
three days later i went to vienna
and nina showed me the botanical garden, that is just near her place. the entrance to this facility was for free, but one cannot enter any glass house. and they don't seem to have a tropical house. so, all the stuff one could see was outdoor. also here it was pretty brownish for most of the parts, with some buds, flowers, and leaves sprouting here and there.
since it was another warm and wonderful day full of sunlight, there were also quite a lot of people in the park. spring is such a wonderful time of the year. hm... though... autumn and winter are too actually. but it's nice to see all the life and colours come back to nature.
oh, the biggest drawback to this garden: they don't seem to have any cat there in the botanical garden. too bad :/
