Some pictures from yesterday morning at the botanical garden here, in Riga. I waited for a long time to see this exhibition about azalea. It was really beautiful, and I didn't know that so many varieties of the same plant existed.

The greenhouse was such a nice little refuge from the snowstorm that hit us during the week-end. When eveything was completely white and cold outside, the greenhouse was so luxuriant and warm. I not only managed to snap some pictures of this glorious morning, but also collected some already fallen flowers for my botanical diary.

Now I'm patiently waiting for them to dry between some pages.
