Botanical Garden - Part A









FuFu Life in Curitiba - Brazil
7th August 2010 | Part Nine




The Jardim Botânico or Botanical Garden is one of the major tourist attractions of Curitiba. Botanical Garden was created in the style of French garden which had become the trademark of the city since it was opened to public in 1991. Icon of the garden is the greenhouse that built in an art nouveau style with a modern metallic structure, resembles the mid-19th century Crystal Palace in London. The garden has nice paths for strolling but i wish it would not be asphalt, instead wood or stones.

It is situated only 3 minutes away from the my new lodging here. So, i walked to the garden after lunch because it is a sunny day with clear blue sky. As usual, i spent most of the time taking pictures and also sitting on the bench observing every movement happened in the garden while waiting for the sunset. Was able to see how majestically the clouds dancing in the sky. Guess i would be the frequent visitor of the garden from now on!


Love at first sight! FuFu hearts Botanic Garden.


Oh my god!


How could people not going to the park on this super fine day?


Can you guys see the condominium FuFu currently is living in?


FuFu saw the bird only can be found in Latin America!


Cute Southern Lapwing. It's widely known as quero-quero in Brazil.


Anyway, kept walking around the park.


Ops, finally FuFu saw the landmark of the park - greenhouse!














"A Mãe" (The Mother) sculpture.


The Mother cradling her child in silhoutte effect. Nice!






Gonna check out what is planted inside the greenhouse!




































The French park!














The show had started. The curtain was being slowly opened.


Get ready?


The clouds started to dance!


Stay tuned for more magnificent sunset shots in the next post!

It's interesting how greenhouses look similar. There's one in the Bronx, New York and saw one just like that in Helsinki, Finland.

Lucky you to live on a condo so close to the garden. Must be expensive?

fufu said...

The Nomadic Pinoy : yeah... they are copying, erm well should be learning from other good example :) hehe i will talk about my new accommodation here later :)

Life for Beginners said...

The clouds have indeed started to dance... and I love that shot of "The Mother" cradling her child in silhoutte against the backdrop of the sky. Beautiful.

fufu said...

Life for Beginners : yeah... lucky to see the clouds dancing :) yeah i have another picture of the mother cradling her child in silhoutte effect :) will put it here later

How come their Botanic Garden do not have many tall and old trees like the ones in Penang's Botancial Gardens? Anyway, theirs look so neat and modern with such a nice clear blue skies that day.

Of course, the best was your special FuFueffect phoyo of the Mother cradling the child. Post some more lah.

FuFu Boleh!

这公园很大很特别,还有一间温室,可是不懂那些温室小花是不是有专人照顾?

The photo with the silhouette effect looks great, it's my favorite. So if FuFu likes Botanical garden and if FuFu likes Brazilian girl, why not combine these two things and share some lovebirds pics? ;)
