Tivoli Outdoor Lighting

I found them!….the pictures of the unique landscape lights at Tivoli gardens in Copenhagen. The posting the other day about the ‘lotus lights’ reminded me of these. Real thought was put into each one to make sure that not only are they sculptural and purposeful as garden planters during the day, but at night the effect that they create is somewhat unexpected.

At night, the structure faded into the darkness and all you saw where the little round globes — each only a few inches in diameter.

This venue, in the heart of the city of Copenhagen, is a ‘not to be missed’ attraction. It is filled with restaurants and night life and a pleasant mix of rides and attractions. I found the ambiance of the gardens and the fact that it was much more of a social gathering place than any current American theme park that I have been to, refreshing and truly enjoyable.

  1. I really like the landscape lights at Tivoli gardens in Copenhagen. My immediate thought was to modify (slightly), use rustic timbers, and place them on a hillside next to my driveway. It woudl cause the timbers, or “legs”, as well as the hanging pots, to be necessarily different lengths that could mimic the slope of the hill. I think it would look great, complete with plants and lights.

Who are modern gardeners? We are people who hope to grow food that we can feel sure of and we need a calm place to enjoy a few quiet minutes of lush green leafiness every once in a while.

Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom’s trailer is such a ridiculous visual feast of a style that I simply adore.  And so much of it makes me long for summer garden days. I am watching it over and over because it sparks ideas literally every single second. I wish I had a full set of stills to study. Oh…
