Visiting the Queen

During the month of July, the Queen's palace at Fredensborg is open for tours.  She lives there three months in the Spring and three months in the Fall.  She spends the summer in northern Jutland at a castle there and the winter in Amalienborg in  Copenhagen.  So we went to visit the Queen today, she wasn't there, but she keeps a lovely home and wonderful garden....
 This is from the back garden, the front is under renovation

 These yew sculptures have to be clipped four times a year.
The kitchen garden was a beautiful blend of flowers and vegetables.

Nifty bean pyramids

 And of course an orangerie for the tender trees during the winter and small receptions.
