The Cambridge University Botanic Gardens are just a 10 minute walk from the train station. The gardens cover 40 acres where you can adventure and explore to find plants from all over the world. I went with my family over the summer and we spent a good few hours walking around the gardens and venturing in and out of the glasshouse.
If you want to learn more about the beautiful flowers and plants our world is filled with then you’re going to love this place. It’s also a perfect escape from the city centre madness.
I’ve been wearing this lovely cherry print dress from Cath Kidston for ages now. I really like the length of it, I can easily jump around taking photos of flowers without any worry that my dress will show a little too much.
I kept my outfit simple this day and pulled on a navy cardigan and white Converse. I also used my Lonchamp backpack which is my most used bag of the last month. It’s easy to chuck everything in and leave my hands free to take photos.
This beautiful red flower is hibiscus. I really enjoying drinking hibiscus tea each day because it has many benefits including helping with anxiety and hypertension.
There were more succulents than I’d ever seen at the botanical gardens.
I made a list of 30 goals I’d like to achieve by the time I hit 30 and one of them is to learn the names of 30 flowers. I’m not sure what this one is so if someone could let me know what would be very kind.
I can’t wait to have my own home and create unique hanging baskets with plants and flowers.
Kniphofias look just like candy corn and they’re making me very excited for Halloween.
These are Echinacea purpurea flowers. They’re also known as a coneflower.
I’ve also forgotten the name of this flower. I’d be very grateful if anyone in the know could leave a comment with the name.
It’s good to visit the gardens multiple times a year. As the seasons change so do the plants and flowers. I’m keen to go back and follow their autumn trail.
