Helloooooooooo 2022! I thought I would start off the New Year in the Vigeland Garden in Oslo, Norway. There will be more posts about this famous Sculpture Garden, but today I’m just getting back into the swing of things! My WordPress site has a new format (UGH) and it will take me several posts before I truly figure it out! (Another groan!) But, you can’t go wrong with a flower or two! And, I only need six today, right?
When you get to Vigeland the first thing you hear are the sounds of laughter and merriment from the playground! Is there anything better than a child playing? They know simple fun! There are kids and parents everywhere……….The grounds are open 24/7…………This is the place to be! It’s in the perfect setting too!
Leaving the playground, the garden begins with a sculpture of Gustav Vigeland nestled in the flowers! More about him up close and personal in future posts!
Vigeland Sculpture Park is partially integrated with Frogner Park and encompasses eighty acres. You may visit day or night. The architectural setting includes expansive lawn grounds and long straight avenues bordered by maple trees.
I really liked the contrast of the many flowers, all jumbled together…………..
Near the ground I find ……. one of my favorites! I love dark, almost black, colored foliage!
And the dahlias always catch my eye too! Isn’t this one a stunner!
Ok, a start to a New Year of SOS! In the next few days I will be sharing with you the ends and outs of this beautiful park……You won’t want to miss it! There are only eighty acres to cover with 214 sculptures and more than 758 figures all modeled in full size! I have a photo of nearly all of them! Ha Ha! But don’t worry I won’t show them all!
If you are new to Six On Saturday, the instructions are easy. The photos can be flowers, vegetables, a garden design, whatever, as long as it’s garden related and posted on Saturday! So, its six photos. Of Gardens. On Saturday. Easy Peasy. To see all the SOS’s look at SIX ON SATURDAY, hosted by the Propagator, to check out all of them each Saturday! See you next week! Cady
