Very austere. I recall those kind of days well.

From the Facebook of Solliden Palace:
Today, about 2,000 pansies have been planted in front of the palace. Now it's really not far to the opening on 16/5.

Solliden Palace launched on Thursday a new website:
Sollidens Slott

There is also some information in english and german.

At "vanliga frågor" (common questions) they answer to many questions regarding the Palace and visiting the park, such as:
Is the King at home today?
We lift a royal flag in front of the Palace when the King or the Crown Princess is in Solliden.
Can you take photos in the park?
Yes, please do! Please use #sollidensslott on Instagram if you have a smartphone or tablet.
Can you see the Palace from the inside?
No, because Solliden Palace is a private residence, it is not possible.
Can you see the Crown Princess Couple's new house?
No, it is located at a private part of Solliden.
Why do you close the gates earlier than the appointed time?
To walk around the park takes about 45 minutes. We close the entrance one hour before closing so that everyone will get out of the park before we lock for the day.

The multicolored pansies harmonize well with each other.

There has been "Öland spirar" -weekend in Solliden on 27-29th May. People could see parts of Solliden which aren't normally shown to the people: for instance Kavaljershuset.
Short video from the Solliden Facebook: people are taken to the sight seeing at the private parts with a tractor:

Again this year there will be a sculpture exhibition at the Solliden Palace park with some of Sweden's foremost contemporary artists. The exhibition, which coincides with the Borgholm's 200th anniversary and the exhibition Royal chairs through 200 years at the Solliden Pavilion, is cured by Galleri Kamras. Barbro and Börge Kamras from Galleri Kamras cure for the tenth time the exhibition to the Solliden Palace park. Sculpture exhibition will be at the Park until 2nd October.
"We are very proud to once again get to organize a sculpture exhibition by the prominent Swedish artists here at Solliden. The castle park is an exciting art space that gives the sculptures a further dimension" - Börge Kamras

Pokémon fever is causing problems for the Swedish royal family
Maybe they should start doing Pokemon tours of the estate?
