Plants in black and white and the occasional dash of color

Europe, nature

A lazy sunday morning on an almost empty campus in the university town of Heidelberg. The botanical garden attracts families, couples and photographers. Birds and squirrels in their favorite tree, butterflies going from flower to flower. A few artists putting up chairs in between plants. The greenhouses have a lot more to offer than one would think. So many patterns and textures, vibrant colors and fluid shapes contrasting the static structures of the building.
