Beauty

Ramme gård - what to say..? It took my breath away. The British Shakespeare Company was brilliant, we enjoyed the play a lot. And those surroundings! An ecological farm serving all sorts of ecological goodies, a garden so beautiful it's hard to comprehend, at least here in little Norway. I'm amazed by the fact that one man has had the capability, the creativity, and that wonderful little touch of madness necessary to create such a place. Above is the King's portal, a copy of one made to honor the King Kristian VI visiting Bergen in 1633. It is a creation not to be placed anywhere. It was perfect here.
To the left, the wonderful, lovely, oriental style - or whatever - cafeteria, to the right, once again blue poppies..
This is the river running from the King's portal down to the swan lake (!) where Venus and Cupid reign. The first hovers above the lake, the latter stands among majestic pillars overlooking the scene.

And last, but not least, the forbidden garden - not for the faint of heart, or for the oversensitive ones. If you consider yourself one of the two, rest with me on the bench, and don't scroll any further.

Hanne, vi har ferie, og koser oss veldig. Men dette er bare en halvtime hjemmefra, så ferie trengs egentlig ikke..

Poethead, I too have fallen in love with the blue poppies!

For et sted! Føler meg dum som ikke har hørt om det engang, men nå står det i alle fall på må-se-lista mi i Norge. Og så Shakespeare i tillegg da - det må jo ha vært en fantastisk kombinasjon.
