Did you wonder about the onion lawns?

In an earlier piece, I wrote about the onion lawns in Copenhagen’s parks. This lawn in Kongens Have (King’s Garden) must be the most tumblred, pinterested and perhaps wordpressed photo opportunity for early spring in Copenhagen, I imagine.

To my readers who wondered what I meant, ‘Onion lawn’ was a direct translation of ‘løgplæne’. It might have been named ‘bulb lawn’ had it been conceived first in the English language.

Here are some progressive shots of the crocuses in Kongens Have as they come up, grow and become denser and eventually deflower.

Spring is indeed lovely in Copenhagen!
