A Christmas Light ‘Installation At ‘Rosendals Trädgården’

On Sunday I took the kids ‘Rosendals Trädgård’ (Rosendals Garden). We had never been here before, but I saw that they had organized a ‘Christmas Light Installation’..
What a wonderful, magical idea!

Unfortunately I hadn’t figured out how to take photos in the dark, and in the rain, previous to this trip (but NOW I know!), so my photos don’t do it justice..

Lots of candles lit everywhere. Candles, candles, candles. Candles making paths, candles making huge heart shapes, candles hanging in bags on ‘wishing trees’ and candles within huge sheets..

There was a little ‘children’s garden’ where a path of evergreen trees and branches had been made, and two little ‘stable like’ wooden stalls with hay inside for the children to sit in – all decorated with lights..

There were ‘snowflakes’ in plant boxes where, previous to our arrival, there had been ‘a snowflake ball’..

…fire pits, a small Christmas market, and a little shop selling home baked goods..

..and a nativity scene, made entirely from natural objects – including sheep made of moss..

There were also story times in the candle lit cottage, and after we left they were going to set light to a huge Christmas tree shape of wood pieces – but it was a fairly cold evening, and had been raining earlier in the day, so it was very muddy – so we decided to ‘call it a day’… We left the beautiful magical lights with good memories..!
