My third installment of pictures taken during a much too short visit to the fantastic botanical garden in Gothenburg on September 12 of this year (if you haven't checked out the other two, click here to access the first and here to access the second blog). I was busy much of the time interacting with a dozen or so of the world's horticultural glitterati, and we were there only for a few hours--these three blogs' worth of pictures were shot quickly, and without the care that such a stunning garden deserves. This was my third visit here (I'd come before in June and in late April). Now to visit all the OTHER months!

|The Swedes are serious about recycling!|
|Fredrik Kinnbo, Swedish horticulturist|
|A trough with Haworthias and Gasterias I suspect was brought in for the winter...|
|A wonderful exhibit of mushrooms|
|Yes, that's a zauschneria on the right--and a hybrid between Pelargonium endlicherianum and P. quercetorum dead center.,|
And finally, a last glimpse at one of the Annual extravaganzas near the exit. Thank you, Gothenburg, for yet another memorable and enchanting visit. I hope to return again before too long!
