A Mountain Princess

Når man vandrer i fjellet, så kan man uforvarende snuble over små skjønnheter man ikke aner så mye om. Riktignok hadde jeg den lykke å kunne bo i relativ trygghet langt oppe i fjellet gjennom den 2. verdenskrig og kjente på den tid den lokale fauna ganske godt selv til guttunge å være, men – idag er det mer enn 75 år siden! Og min ellers relativt brukbare
hukommelse får stadig flere huller. Ganske store hull, til og med! 🙂
Så kom jeg over denne lille ‘skjønnheten’ nær et lite bekkefar!  Den kan minne om en plante jeg for 75 år siden kjente som ‘Harelabb’, men – jeg er idag langt fra sikker på om dette var den planten? Vakker der den i alle fall, og derfor presenterer jeg den her i håp
om at en annen fjellvandrer vet hva ‘hun’ egentlig heter?

Ai ai, – en av mine mange lesere (40thousandkm) satte meg på sporet, og jammen fungerte min gamle hukommelse! Denne ‘prinsessen’ har veldig mange navn:
Kattelabb,
harelabb, jaselabb, puselabb, bikkjelabber, revelabb, harefot, antueldgras, gustegras, vortegras, 
When you hike in the mountains, you can inadvertently stumble upon small beauties you have little idea about. Admittedly, I had the good fortune to be able to live in relative safety far up in the mountains through the Second World War and at that time knew the local fauna quite well even for a boy to be, but – today it is more than 75 years ago! And mine otherwise relatively usable memory gets more and more holes. Pretty big holes, even! 🙂
Then I came across this little ‘beauty’ near a small creek! It may be reminiscent of a plant I knew 75 years ago as ‘Harelabb’, but – today I am far from sure if this was that plant? Beautiful at least, and therefore I present it here in the hope that another mountain hiker knows what ‘she’ is really called?

And one of my followers was able to set me right! And nice to know that my memory still serves me right (even if I don’t trust it to do so! 🙂  ) (Please see Norwegian text-block)

  1. Ja, må innrømme at jeg ikke kan huske å ha lagt merke til den blomsten før? Sjelden?

    That is probably antennaria dioica (mountain everlasting) 🙂 Beautiful!

    Such beauty and no name – it’s a shame!
