Birthday Memories

Well, en 83-årsdag er vel egentlig ikke noe særlig å huske? Ikke er det ‘rundt tall’, og det faktum at man har blitt enda ett år eldre, enda litt skrøpeligere til bens og med en enda svakere hukommelse, det er vel egentlig ikke en positiv hendelse? Men så er det jo slik da – at slekt og venner likevel har et ønske om å markere dagen?! Og slikt setter jo spor – ofte i form av blomster (som etter hvert visner hen) som jeg derfor har fotografert. Og så kan vi alle ha litt ekstra glede av denne fargeprakten?
Well, a ’83rd birthday’ isn’t really something to celebrate, is it? It isn’t even what you could call a ’round number’, and the fact that one has grown even a year older, even a bit more fragile to the bone and with an ever weakening memory, is that really a positive event?
But then there are these friends and relatives  that are all hell bent on marking the day, – ‘my day’ 🙂 ?! And such happenings leave traces – often in the form of flowers (which eventually withers away)  and which I have therefore chosen to photograp.  Thus we may all have a little extra pleasure from this color splendor?

      Yes, Christine, they were nice – and a bit unexpected even if on a special day 🙂
      The November snow never came back once it disapperaed and the last week has been kind of sunny with plus temperatures! Not too many, of course, but even so – a large improvment!

    Gorgeous flowers, Svein! It’s the thought that counts and the memories. You’re probably healthier than most people. Eat well, sleep well, exercise and keep taking those stunning pictures!

    Celebrate… Whatever the number 🎉😊🎂

    • Seenorway says:

      Well, I bought the cakes, prepared the food, closed my eyes and lived with the moment. Seemed to be the sensible thing to do, and I guess that is very close to your advise? 😉
