Great flower abstract Fons - the thin edges of the flower leaf reveals it as a flower.

Flowers can be small in size, however have a big impact :( Birches are bearing catkins now and the heavy release of air-borne pollen makes a lot of people quite sick. Yours truly inclusive, by the way.

The best remedy is fasting or at least to avoid rich foods etc :)

Thank you Lars

Whats the name of the place?

It's the castle "Gavnø" south of Næstved city:

There is also a Lily festival during the summer - and other flowers in the gardens. Also a beautiful castle in beautiful surroundings :-)

A bit weird, but a popular perennial - bleeding heart or fallopian buds (Lamprocapnos spectabilis).

Sorry, should have wrote horse-chestnut - they are common in DK. The chestnuts are probably more rare and grown in gardens and parks.
