Believe it or not, every now and then, Facebook commercials can actually be worth a darn! And guess what? This was one of those times! So there I was, scrolling through Fb, and BOOM! I stumbled upon a post about anemones blooming in the Boserup forest located nearby Roskilde.
This forest is famous for its abundance of anemones – you can spot all sorts of them, from the common white and yellow to the rare blue ones. There’s even a trail you can follow called the “anemone trail” (anemonespor) that takes you on a 4 km walk through the forest, where the ground is literally covered in white anemones!
Normally, these beauties bloom in March and April before the beech leaves start hogging all the spotlight. However, this year’s spring was a bit of a slacker, and even threw in some snow at the end of March – not exactly an ideal environment for these delicate flowers to flourish.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to witness the full glory of the white sea of flowers when I visited, but I’m sure it’ll be worth a second trip in a week or two!
Even though I didn’t get to run around in a field of anemones, the walk was still super enjoyable and definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area! So why not give it a whirl and see if you can find yourself a rare blue anemone?
