The first day of this botanical adventure in the Mediterranean mecca of Greece is starting with some outstanding sights! I'm ready to sink my horticultural teeth into some of the best that springtime has to offer! at Εθνικός Κήπος / National Garden.
Taking a break from Athens National Garden, Karl decided to stroll down one of the many pedestrian streets which revealed abundant artwork and charming alleys at Stoa of Attalos
National Library of Greece
Next, it was time to visit the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera rooftop garden. This rooftop garden covers multiple acres and is filled with plants both native and adapted to the region.
