waiting for summer

The Ulriksdal castle has this nice little building, whatever it is. I suppose there should be lots of flowers around it, but now it stands like a black skeleton waiting for the next green season.

.Jag har ingen aning vad en sådan här anordning kallas. Den blev i alla fall en intressant förgrund till Ulriksdals slott.

Composition, graphic qualities, the lot. This is good.

Oh I agree, really lovely!

I agree with Per. But this is a very interesting building. The onion dome looks Russian but it seems to have a Muslim crescent on the top. It would be interesting to learn about the architectural design.

you can find out a bit more about the architecture, it seems like different styles have replaced one another throughout the years from when the palace was built in the 16th century.

Wonderful!

Even without the flowers, in its nakedness, it has a certain beauty about it.

Thanks for the help Pia. Would you believe it, if you look further in the link you will find a pic almost identical with mine.

It is a remarkably strict object, and yes - even without flowers it has its own beauty.
