Impressions from a Garden

Det er fortsatt 7-8 grader over normalen på våre kanter av verden, men noe sier meg at det er temmelig mye over normalen også andre steder? I Syd-Norge kjemper brannvesen mot et utall av skogbranner antent av lynnedslag i knusktørr skog, gressplener visner på rot og restriksjoner på vanning er for lengst innført. Da er det kanskje på tide å ta en liten tur gjennom hagen og forevige noe av det som finnes før alt forsvinner under en brennende sol?
It’s still 7-8 degrees over the normal in our parts of the world, but I have a feeling that temperatures are pretty much over the normal in other parts of our world?

In Southern Norway local fire brigades are desperately fighting a large number of forest fires ignited by lightnings in extremely dry forest areas all over the place, lawns are withering away under our feet and heavy restrictions have been imposed on the use of water!  Perhaps then it’s time to take a stroll through the garden and preserve sssome of the sights that are still there, before it all disappears under a burning sun?
Blomsterfluene føler seg ganske trygge når de ser ut som bier, men mange jegere har etter hvert lært seg trikset 🙂

The flowerflies feel pretty safe looking like bees, but several hunters have gotten wise to the trick – 🙂
Du er velkommen inn, men det blir nok en klissete opplevelse . . . !
You’ll be welcome inside, but it’s gonna be one sticky experience . . .!
Legg merke til hvordan blomsten i bakgrunnen har forseglet sin frøkapsel!
Please observe how the flower in the back has sealed its seed capsule!
Humlene går systematisk til verket når de leter etter nektar –
The bumblebees are very methodic in their search for nectar –
Dette er ikke en regulær sommerfugl, men kanskje en slags ‘spinner’?
Det er uhyre vanskelig å identifisere slike småtasser om man ikke har dem spent ut på et brett, og det vil vi jo ikke . . .?

This is not a regular butterfly but most probably some kind of ‘spinner’?
It’s incredibly hard to indentify such spinners unless you have them pinned to a board, and we don’t want to do that, do we . . .?
Her har vi imidlertid en skikkelig sommerfugl som også verdsetter ‘lavendel’! Jeg tror vel dette er en vanlig hvit kålsommerfugl?

Here is a real butterfly whom also appreciates the lavender. And I think this one is called a ‘Cabbage white’?
Ja, jeg vet dette ble mye blomster og bier etc, men – i morgen kan de være borte! Og jeg håper det gir en sterk følelse av sommer, for den kan også forsvinne fortere enn vi aner!

Yes, I know this suddenly became (perhaps) too mucj of flowers and bees, but   – tomorrow thay might be gone?!  And I hope I’ll leave you with a strong sense of summer, which (perhaps) also might be gone before you know it!

    Beautiful flowers, bees, and butterflies and an outstanding tribute to summer while it’s still upon us. It’s 85 degrees at 7:49 PM in my area, which isn’t too bad for this time of the year.

    Hubby and I are traveling to Blue Ridge, GA tomorrow and returning Wednesday. Hold down the fort. 🙂

      Enjoy your vacation! It’s nice to get away from the worst heat for a while!
      I really don’t think all that much will be different once you return! 🙂

    Ah, you know, Sue, these new telephones that whistle or plings endlessly through the day, they do have an ‘off-button’?! And I can almost guarantee that our world will still be here when you find the time to turn it back on! 🙂 (You probably have way too many apps installed!) I have 2 ( I think) and the one I use most is the weather forecast! It doesn’t intrude on my day at all.

  5. Wonderful flowers and butterflies, I was taking images to day too of Cabbage whites in the wild flowers on a meadow.. Will be catching up with the rest of your images as soon as I get through the lists of comments I am only spending a short time on my blog, and when I intend to sit at my computer something crops up to prevent me.. So I am just going with the flow of it and you know Normal service should be resumed sooner of later! 🙂
