Photo – Nature – Everyday Life



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!



If you love a flower

If you love a flower, don´t pick it up.

Because if you pick it up it dies

and it ceases to be what you love.

So if you love a flower, let it be.

Love is not about possession.

Love is about appreciation.



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.

Well now the Easter holidays are over and tomorrow it is back to work.

Have a lovely week!


Happy Easter Holiday

To days post consists of a few pictures i took in the woodlands today when I was out walking my dog in the rain. Just enjoying some days off.

Spring is just beautiful!

Happy Easter holiday!


Hazel (Corylus avellana)

It is so much exciting going on in the forest during spring. The other day I was out walking in my little neighborhood-forest when I came to think of the flowers of hazel. They are beautiful, dark pink and so tiny, the flowers are only 1-3 mm long. I decided to see if I could be able to find a hazelnut-tree with flowers. Well I did and I managed to take a photo of it too. But it is so difficult without a tripod, but I think it went out well.


Simple and beautiful!

Have a beautiful week and happy Easter holiday!

Spring flowers – again

Last week I posted pictures of anemone hepatica and snowdrop. Well, I am sorry but this is the content of todays post too. But they are much better pictures than those two of last week so I hope it is OK anyway 😉 The hepatica buds from last week is now in full bloom and looks so pretty. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

I think they are so beautiful, but I promise to post something different next week 🙂 Have a lovely week!


I had a wonderful walk by the seaside this morning. I feel lucky living so close to the sea and to have so many possibilities for taking pictures of both the little treasures in the forest in addition to land- and seascapes. There will be no landscape pictures on the blog today, those I captured is not very presentable…. More practice needed 😉

On my walk I found some spring flowers, anemone hepatica (Hepatica nobilis) and snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis). I think they are so beautiful and after a long dark winter and finally seeing some wild flowers again, it´s just so lovely. Hope you´ll find some beautiful flowers wherever you are! Have a lovely week!
