Danish Flora on Fyn
Our travels in Denmark next took Allan (@hanedane) and I to the island of Fyn (pronounced foon), east of the main island of Sjælland. The more modern name for the island is Funen; an -en ending means "the."
Purple heart in Odense
Fyn is fairly small; you can drive across the whole island in 45 minutes. Its largest city is Odense which was, of course, the hometown of Hans Christian Andersen.
When we arrived in Odense, they were preparing for a flower festival that, unfortunately, was still a few days out. We were more focused on Andersen anyway, but did snap a few photos of beautiful plants growing in town.
The highlight of Fyn's flora, though, came on our visit to Egeskov Slot, a castle in Kværndrup. I'll be doing a post on Egeskov Slot soon, but here I'd like to share several specimens in the castle's dahlia garden, as well as gorgeous trees and hedges all over the estate.
