Sofia Botanical Garden is the only one I’ve visited (so far) that is practically located on a roundabout. It’s hard to imagine – even when you’re actually there. But of course the result is it’s very far from being an oasis, the constant heckle of traffic impossible to ignore.
Slow is the word…even the gardeners go very slowly to be able to work in the burning heat. Sometimes it’s cooler inside the glasshouses. My poetry brain feels a bit like a battered coffee percolator on an old iron stove.
