Summer holiday

This will be my last post for a few weeks. Soon I am leaving Norway for a summer holiday in France (Provence). So with a picture of the lovely water avens I wish you a lovely summer!

Rain, rain go away

Today the plan was a little photo safari in a park with old, shabby buildings. Well, we started out well, we took a lot of shots of our dogs, some of the houses and of course I had to take some flower shots too. After that it started raining, well no surprise maybe since the last weeks has been quite rainy. We got soaking wet and had to go home much earlier than planned. Norwegian summer in a nut shell 😉 Have a nice week!

Nome (left) and Charlie (right) did some posing.

It was a lot of flies in the park just before the rain started.

Lilly of the Valley

In my little garden I planted Lilly of the Valley when we moved here, some years they did have some flowers and some years not. Two years ago I moved them to a different part of my flower bed. I thought they died because last year I could not find them. But now they are back with beautiful pale pink flowers (this is a pink variant). So this weeks picture is of the beautiful Convallaria majalis rosea.

Working ants

My peony have some visitors these days: ants. The are busy walking around on the buds and seem to be hard working. I tried to take some pictures of them.

It is time for a new week and to try to be a working ant too!

Afternoon walk

The weather was so bright and warm so before diner I went for a little walk with my dog, Charlie. I brought the camera because the afternoon sun can give some interesting light for macro photography. I did find a few little treasures.

Hope you enjoy the photos!

May is here

Today was a wonderful monday, in Norway we have a day off every 1st of May. We went for a walk in the forest, the sun was shining and all of the snow that came last monday is now finally gone.

The sun was shining so beautifully between the trees:

And the third spring flower, wood sorrel, is blooming:

I did also find a pink variant of Anemone hepatica:

This week will be a short one because I am taking some days off. I will spend the next weekend in Amsterdam with one of my best friends. Hopefully I have some pictures to share when I get back!

Have a lovely, sunny week!

 

Sunday walk

Finally all of the snow is gone and the paths are open for walking in the forest again. These days the forest are all dressed up in white, no, not snow, but the beautiful wood anemone covers all of the the ground. Soon all the trees in the forest are covered with green leaves and summer is just around the corner 🙂

In between there are still a few Anemone hepatica in bloom too.

Spring took a break

This Easter was rather cold and the weather certainly did not give the expected feeling of spring. Spring took a break and winter came on a visit.

Yesterday we went for a walk in the forest and it was snowing. It was a nice walk and we got the feeling of Christmas 😉

The spruce trees a long the path was all dressed up with ice taps and walking a long a little creek I found a tiny mushroom almost covered in snow.
