In the botanical gardens, a bank has sponsored a flowerbed and a telecommunications company a park bench, the historical greenhouse has been renovated with EU money. Indoors, a woman waters plant beds with a garden hose. I find the fungi growing on the rotten wood between the labelled plants most impressive. Some of the mushrooms look like small, soil-coated almond potatoes. One minuscule pale-yellow fungus, decorative like a hedgehog mushroom, is washed invisible with the pressure of the water from the hose. In the cactus room, a stapelia grandiflora is opening its buds. A dark squirrel hides hazelnuts from its cheek pouches into a plastic flowerpot by the building.
