SocS 17 November #Psst

“Psst!” one of the most well used words in the Danish language. Well perhaps not but in the early 7O’s one of the most famous greetings bestowed on visitors to a well known area of the amazing city of Copenhagen. I refer of course to the famous Whispering Gardens. Possibly also carrying the epithet, Tivoli Gardens,” but well-known as the former by many a visiting sailor to that very hospitable city. The reason for it’s name being that whilst walking through the tree-lined centre of the park on a dark evening every tree seemed to say, “Psst Jack,” as you passed. The brief greeting emanating from a concealed personage behind each tree inviting and inciting imaginative ways in which to spend a few Kroner.
