The Cornflower – Kornblom

En del av hagens vegetasjon har nå takket for seg, og lokal varmebølge med temperaturer opp mot 30 grader C i skyggen har vel ikke akkurat hjulpet på overlevelsesfaktoren, men-
det er noen som stolt viser sitt sanne jeg. En av dem er ‘Kornblom’ som med sin intense blåfarge nok stikker seg ut på denne tiden av året?
Parts of the vegetation in our garden seem to have had it for this year, and when a local heathwave with temperatures close to 86 F hit us, It really didn’t do much for survivals!
But there is one that proudly stands out this time of the year: The cornflower with its intense blue color! ‘Here I am’!

      And this year, when the summer temperatures have been approximately 5-10 degrees higher than normal, they are still here waving theIr magnificent colors!

    Such a vibrant colour. I’m back home and I just loved Oslo. It has amazingly many flowers around the town as vibrant as your garden. And many many statues. I will put some pictures on my blog soon. Now you have really hot too. We have today 38 degrees Celsius. Keep cool.

      Hi, Ute! Pleased that you enjoyed our country. Did you get to see the Royal Castle?
      Or perhaps the Akershus Castle by the wharf? Unfortunate that the weather didn’t quite play along, but at least I think you had one successful day as weather goes?
      Normally I would have visited you in Oslo, however, during summer they have a massive maintenance of our trainlines, and just when you were here it was ‘bus for trains’! And with the heat I just didn’t have the stomac for a bus ride like that! But if you enjoyed it that much, you might be coming back some time? 🙂
      Many statues? He he, you must have visited the Frognerpark also called the Vigeland Park, as he’s the one that made all these statues? And if you check it out, you’ll find that I have long ago made a photo report from the very same!

        Svein, we did see the Akerhus, we were at the Royal Palace twice but not inside. We did the Rathus tour though. We chatted to the guards. We lived just a stonethrow away from there. We walked on the Opera house… we walked a lot. We did not go to the Vigeland Park, didn’t have enough time somehow. I do find in town are many statues too though. We most likely will come again as Norway is just do lovely and the people there too! I was impressed by those electric scooters. I had a try too! 🙂

          Those electric cycleboards with a motor may get you into serious trouble. Many doesn’t stop before its too late and may hit a car in the street or a pedestrian, There is no insurance attached to using one and we have already had a couple of serious accidents where people have been hospitalized. In France people have died!
          If you happen to scratch a parked Tesla, the damages may run into something like
          £ 6-8000 and with no insurance coverage you’ll be in serious trouble!
          Too bad you didn’t get to see the Royal Caste from the inside. There are 2 daily excursions with English speaking guide – and only one on Saturday/Sunday!
          But we won’t be moving anywhere, so welcome to another trip! 🙂

        • Seenorway says:

          To make sure you repeat your visit, here is a taste of the Vigeland Park which you didn’t get to see this time:

          Please enjoy!

  5. Seenorway says:

    Thank you! It did kind of ‘standing out in a crowd’! 🙂
