Garden Walk

Siden vår 43 bilders reportasje fra Kongberg kun ga en betinget respons fra 13 av 783 abonnenter så skjønner jeg at jeg kanskje må tenke nytt? Da blir det jo selvfølgelig langt enklere for meg å åpne bakdøra til vår hage og bare ta noen vårbilder  når solen skinner?

Since my 43 picture ‘photo-report’ from Kongsberg only generated a respons from 13 ofmy registered 783 subscribers, I’ve taken the signal. I understand that I’ll have to change my line of thinking?  An. of course, it will be very much simpler for me to open the back door to our garden and shoot a few pictures whenever the sun is there?

I hagen er det omsider sterke signaler på at våren har kommet, men natten er lumsk. Plutselig kan kuldgradene være der, og de plantene som har våget å blomstre nå har liten toleranse for minusgrader. Og likevel har en gammel kall som meg falt for fristelsen til å følge blomstenes eksempel og kjøpe inn de første amplene fra vårt lokale plantesenter. Det er jo (vel) vår?

In the garden there are strong signals indicating that the spring is here, but the night may be treacherous ! Suddenly the temperature can plunge below zero, and the plants having dared to blossom, has very small tolerance for zero temperatures! Even so has an ‘oldie’ like myself been tempted to by the first flowers of the season ’cause the spring has arrived spring (hasn’t it?)

I alle fall synes tulipanene å være av den mening?
At least the tulips seems to think so?

Og det er mange av dem! Og i alle farger og fasonger –
And there are a lot of them. I all colors and shapes –

Dette er imidlertid en kristtorn –
On the other hand – this is a holly –

Kunne ikke motstå anledningen til å teste ut mitt nye macro-objektiv  . . .
I couldn’t resist the opportunity to test my new macro lense . . .

Ooops!  Det var absolutt ikke meningen å forstyrre . . .
Ooops! We really didn’t mean to intrude . . .

Dette bildet fikk meg til å tenke på hva prisen på, en drink kunne bli i disse dager . .? Er ikke vi heldige som bare kan dra kortet?

This picture got me thinking what the price of a drink could come to these days?
Aren’t we the lucky ones that may only draw our card?

    Ingen fare, masse hull foran øynene. Meshstoff, vet du🙂 Blå er den foretrukne farge for noen, om du synes sort blir for traurig🙂

      Ideen er jo å skape skygge på displayet, så kan hende greier jeg meg med en blå hatt noe ala Dronning Elizabeth? Og ja, en lys sommerblå må jo bli ganske kledelig og står til mitt sølvfargede skjegg (som du da ikke lenger får se🙂 )

    Takk for hagevandringen🙂
    Og macroobjetivet ditt ga uttelling🙂

    These are beautiful. But, the travel isn’t a waste; those are beautiful, too.

    • Seenorway says:

      So – please tell me, Dave: Over the two last year I have registered 783 subscribers who have told med that they are interested in Norway and Norwegian nature. I assume that’s why they registered in the first place?
      And when I use 3 days of my time; one for photgraphy, one for editing and the last for writing/translating/publishing such a report, (not to mention actual costs) then I’ve earned myself 13 ‘likes’?
      What is it I haven’t understood?

    These are beautiful! Happiness for the eyes and the soul. 🙂

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you, Gwynneth. Perhaps these are the type of pictures that will execute some respons then? So easy on me! Then I don’t even have to leave my own garden?
      And here I’ve been using thousands and thousands on travel to keep you all happy?
      What a waste!
