The Linnaeus Garden in Uppsala

This was a really fun place to visit in Uppsala, Sweden! I was in Stockholm on a family vacation, and we took an easy train ride to Uppsala and spent the afternoon wandering around Linnaeus’s beautiful garden and house. Having written a paper on taxonomy and featuring Linnaeus, I was delighted to see where Linnaeus did his work! If you ever visit Stockholm or Uppsala, definitely put this on your list!

This clock shows the times different flowers open over the course of a day. Supposedly if you memorize this, you can accurately tell what time it is by looking at the flowers in Linnaeus’s garden. The flowers are that specific!
