    Hi all,

    Beautiful park in Malmo
    Of which there are many.

    Bike counter in the afternoon
    Now here is a marvellous contraption! The tall black object counts the number of bikes that go past every day. Here is it in the afternoon at a count of 2447...

    Bike counter in the evening
    ...and here it is in the evening at a count of 5811. It really makes you think about using your bike to travel around Malmo which of course many people do and I have as well :)

    How did he get up there!!
    Don't worry, this patriotic Swedish chap isn't real :D We just thought he looked funny (and slightly creepy at the same time) so we took a snap of him.

    My favourite display in the Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen
    This was definitely my favourite floral display in the Gardens. Dotted around the landscape were numerous purple water features and the variety of flowers on display was great.

    Cute car ride attraction in the Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen
    I didn't ride on it though ;) I was enjoying the plant displays too much.

    Spectacular fountain in the Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen
    This fountain turns itself on and off.

    Interesting walkway in the Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen
    This walkway is littered with games and attractions. It had a slight Western feel to it.

    Pirate ship in the Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen
    Now this was amazing! There is a resteraunt aboard this magnificent pirate ship.

    Water feature in the Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen
    This water feature looked like something straight out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. All it was missing was Willy Wonka parading around it with the Oompa-Loompas :D

    Various shots of the plant displays in the Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen
    I really enjoyed these. They look fantastic and are very well maintained.

    The Little Mermaid
    Well this is a first for GardenStew.com... an actual sighting of ME :) I am pictured on the left with my brother on the right enjoying our little visit to the world famous Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen. I was quite suprised at the lack of security surrounding this tourist attraction, no CCTV or anything. It was pretty cool to see it though!

    :oops: :oops: :oops: Why thank you Eileen :D

    Yeah the Tivoli Gardens are fantastic. I highly recommend them. It's just a pity they weren't a bit larger but worth it indeed.

    Glad you liked the piccies!
