Botanical gardens – Peradeniya, Sri Lanka
Last month, I had the most wonderful opportunity to visit the isle of Sri Lanka. With its array of wildlife, stunning temples and tasty food – I was in cultural heaven!
As part of my trip I visited the country’s Royal Botanical Gardens. I was simply blown away by the colourful, huge and diverse trees and plants on show. It really was a real treat for all the senses.
I chose the garden’s guide map for this month’s MOTM for both simplicity and detail:
• The key areas are highlighted by the bold numbers, which are easily found in the legend – this allowed us to create our own route around the garden.
• Beautifully hand-illustrated – you can grasp a feel for the garden before you even step foot in it!
I urge anyone to visit this stunning place. And don’t forget to pick up a map if you do!
