Leiden Botanical Gardens

July 25th, 2016

I’ve been becoming more and more interested in gardens. It may be something to do with the sunny weather when gardens often look their best. In Leiden there is the Hortus Botanicus and I’ve visited a number of times. I had done a few small drawings here whilst my daughter slept in her buggy. Then I returned to do some larger drawings. Every time I visit I seem to spot something different. There is so much to draw upon – the plants or flowers, sculptures, observatory or even visitors lounging by the pond or walking along the winding path.
