Botanical Garden, Neuchâtel
"A stone’s throw from the town, there’s a little gate that takes you into these large gardens. Palm trees and multicoloured flowers welcome us and carry us off on a discovery of all sorts of different plants. We stroll along the paths, from alpine slopes to the Mediterranean, to exotic and carnivorous plants, the dryness of cactus greenhouses or the warmth of tropical greenhouses. We pick a mini-kiwi, which tantalises our taste buds, we say hello to the salamanders and frogs in the pond, then bury our noses in the aromatic herbs…mmm! We watch the bees and lose ourselves for a bit and finally we doze off for a bit in the orchard listening to the noises of nature."
