Taipei Botanical Garden / Part I.

Negative0-23-20(1)2

The Taipei Botanical Garden (台北植物園) was first built as a nursery in the late 1800s and remodeled into a botanical garden about thirty years later. There are two historical structures in the garden, a Qing Dynasty era administrative office and the other the first herbarium in Taiwan. I do not have any pictures of either building due the constraints of the fixed lens on my camera but I did take 1.5 rolls worth of flowers, trees and plants on film – all of which I am going to post in two installments. It is five times smaller than the Singapore Botanic Gardens (which I also visited in February) but I still managed to spend a good three hours in green serenity.
