Saturday we visited a restaurant with a huge garden on the island of Hidle in Ryfylke, one hour drive and to boat trips south of us.
The garden is planted with 50000 annuals every year in a framework of trees and shrubs, small lakes, creeks and paths. Some of the exotic shrubs and palms are brought inside during the winter. The climate is mild so some exotics like the old olive tree stay outside all year.
Although the weather wasn't the best we had a very nice day and the food was good too!
