Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003. Love the outdoor life, gardening and sailing especially. View my profile

New Years Concert, Ivanhoe and a slight hangover

The same procedure as last year! I celebrate the 1st of January 'comme d'habitude'.

A concert, a good movie and a slight hangover!

New Years Concert in Vienna
Maestro George Pretre 2008
The 2008 New Year's Day Concert, conducted by the eminent conductor Georges Prêtre for the first time. What an honour, Prêtre is the first Frenchman that concucts th New Year Concert. Maestro Prêtre has a special association with the Wiener Philharmoniker dating back to 1966. He became Honorary Member of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna - the highest decoration an artist can obtain in Vienna. The concert programme for 1st January 2008 will be the customary cornucopia of Strauss delights, but this time with a French theme.
The ballet ensemble, Vienna 2008

För baletten och kostymerna svarar Nicolas Musin. I en direktsändning från Musikverein skickar Wienfilharmonikerna traditionsenliga och välklingande nyårshälsningar. Dirigent är Georges Pretre.

Afternoon Movie:

Ivanhoe from 1982 with one of my favorite actor Sam Neill, Sam plays 'Brian Guilbert'....very nice. James Mason as 'Isaac of York' and Anthony Andrews as 'Ivanhoe'. Perfect movie on the New Years Day. I think this is the best version though the one that was made 30 years earlier, 1952 with Elisabeth Taylor and Robert Taylor isn't bad either.


Elisabeth Taylor and Robert Taylor.
Roger Moore
and then we have the jerk.....sorry Roger!

Gott Nytt År! Happy New Year!
TYRA

Hey, here I was all ready to read about the hangover but ????? what happened to it? giggle

I love Ivanhoe too, as a young girl I watched the tv series with youknowwho. ;-) I haven't seen the 1982 movie version with both Sam Neill (yep, he's one of my favorites too) and Anthony Andrews.

A very happy New Year Tyra, with loads of gardening and blogging fun!
