Botanischer Garten

Insect Pavillion, Munich

It took me too long to realise that the Botanical Gardens are more than just their greenhouse, which hosts the butterfly exhibition every Winter. Although I managed to go there in a warm and sunny day in September, the poor excuse we had for a Summer meant the blooming season was long gone already. Of course that didn't stop me from walking around the entirety of the garden in heels (it was a spontaneous decision made in fear that it would be the last sunny and warm day until next May - it wasn't), imagining how pretty it should be in full bloom, or all golden in Autumn.

The photo above is the Insect Pavillion. It has a wide variety of flowers that make the perfect environment for bees to thrive on, and works as a refugee for 78 species of them. They even sell packs of seeds for these flowers that you can just thrown on a patch of land you own, and make it more bee friendly.

There is also an area called the "economical gardens", where you'll find a wide variety of common vegetables and fruits. It says no where if you can pick the fruits and eat them or not, so being the good German that I am, I stayed away from it...
