There is a place in Riga where spring always comes first. I would even say, it never leaves this place. Something is always blooming there any time of the year, as far as I know. Have you already guesed what place am I talking about? No, I’m not speaking of the flowerbed of our neighbour old lady (though, if she had a winter house for her plants there, it would be another correct answer). The place is the Botanical Garden of Riga. I was in some other botanical gardens in other countries and I must say that after comparing it with the others, I am quite proud of ours. Maybe it doesn’t have such a variety of plants, maybe it’s old. But it’s treated with a big care and it’s really neat, beautiful and stylish. It also has some benches, so you can make a picnic there.
