It will be a true oasis of scent and color: when the colourful flowers of lavender, rosemary and bougainvillea bloom, as well as those of weaver’s broom and honeysuckle, there is no bee, bird or passionate walker who will not want to rest a while in the Mediterranean garden of the Umag Humagum Park. It is part of a landscaping project that seeks to transform the central part of the Umag waterfront into a place of rest and exploration of the Mediterranean flora, since most of the garden will be occupied by plant species and trees characteristic of this Mediterranean region.
In addition to the shrubs, there will be olive trees, tangerine trees, fig trees and other fruits typical of this Mediterranean area in the Mediterranean garden. Decorating public areas with edible herbs, especially fruit, is part of an increasingly popular trend that has started in Scandinavia.
The Mediterranean garden that is forming in Umag will ultimately be rectangular in shape, with a central circle to which all the paths one can use to walk the garden will lead. Trees and plants have already been planted, but still, almost half of the garden still needs to be “populated” by the interesting “residents” of karst fields, and I can’t wait to see what it will look like in its full splendor!
Now I will definitely have another reason to come back to Umag again, in addition to the usual enjoyment of a coffee on a terrace that overlooks the sea, of massages at the nearby top spa centers or of a simple opportunity to dive into the blue Adriatic!
