Nature Notes: Botanical Garden

The weather was gorgeous and so we, along with half the population of Hamburg apparently, went for a walk in the Botanical Garden. There were already a ton of flowers, for example irises in many colours

I don't know what this flower is called, but I love the delicate petals and the colour

and so does this hoverfly (Dasysyrphus albostriatus, I think)

the bees preferred the heather - the Botanical Garden has five or six beehives and there's heather planted all around them because it's a good bee pasture
