"Heaven`s Garden" in St.Michael/Bamberg shows 578 plants, especially herbs, from all over the world. The paintings that cover the ceiling of the Benedictine Church date from 1614 - 1617. You could spend hours to discover mamy known and unknown plants!
Thanks to G.for your company, for guiding, explaining with your large botanical knowledge - for your heartwarming friendship!

????? Great!
Thanks a lot for the info.
Do you know that Blue Mosque in Istanbul is called "blue" because the sultan who ordered to build it commanded to paint the interior walls with drawings of all the plants that were in his garden between the Mosque and Hagia Sophia. All the flowers were painted in blue, I cannot say if the Mosque is more beatiful on the inside or outside... but the sultan got his intention: Blue Mosque is more beautiful than Hagia Sophia (at least in my opinion).

Unchained Sehr interessante Geschichte. Pflanzen habe ich noch nie in einer Kirche gesehen. Sieht aber gut aus und ist toll von Dir dargestellt.
