After the weekly saturday market at Fyris Torg in Uppsala, I took in a bit of the culture carnival taking place all over town. The Linne Gardens, taken over by Carl Linnaeus in 1741, had a baroque theme to their activities, and a plant market, so I had to go.

The plant market, run by amatuer gardener clubs, was fabulous and inexpensive. I got 2 yellow-orange azaleas, 2 odd tomato plants, and a yellow peony.
