Some wildflowers in the rain

It is raining every day, but there are glimspes of almost sunshine, and then there are meadows of wild flowers to enjoy. Right outside my door. My plan was to make another post from the fishing festival, but I have computer problems, so can’t get at those pictures at the moment. I don’t even have proper email. But I had an empty laptop, and some new pictures of flowers… There are more norwegian wildflowers in my photo gallery and here is a link.

      1. May be not cold, but while contemplated long
        dark winter, not expect too much, neither
        over excited. = modest though, the internal determination hence stubbornness must be
        their second name 🙂
        (Is that correct ?)

      2. Yes, you are right, Yoshizen. But wrong at the same time. I know norwegians that are overexcited sometimes, not all the times, but sometimes. Even very much so.😉. We are probably different like everybodey else (more or less).

  1. I followed your link to the impressive gallery – ‘ummm’ cloudberries (multebær), unfortunately, grows only 2 places in Denmark – but probably more widespread both in Finland, Sweden and Norway…😉

    1. Cloudberries still grow in Denmark. I didn’t know, and they must be rare. Here there are most in the mountains, but the ones around were I live will be ripe first, that is quite soon and it seems to be more than usually. Maybe not in the high mountains. There have been freezing nights in the Røros area and that may kill them….😉

  3. I love these wild flowers. In my small garden I had a true invasion of the blue ones. They threatened to completely take over. I had to sort of wade through them, because they get to be so tall too. Or are these a different smaller kind? The flowers look exactly the same. To my regret I’ve had to pull quite a lot of them out with roots and all, because they set a lot of seed and I wouldn’t know what to begin with even more next year. By the way, I also took out two of the biggest ferns. They were smothering other plants and I still have more than enough left.

    1. There are invasive species of bellflower, Cybermum, like this one (creepinjg bellflower): http://www.restoringthelandscape.com/2010/08/thats-invasive-european-bellflower.html. We don’t look at our small bluebell (Campanula rotundifolia) as invasive. On the contrary, it is very much loved in Norway. You find it in old farmland and up in the mountains among other places. it is actually treathened by modern agriculture and alien invasive species like lupins.

      1. Thnx. The one I have in my garden looks exactly like this, but it does not have taproots. I’m afraid that last year I left the stalks too long, so that it could seed itself around the garden.😉

  4. Really romantic, a romantic summer`s dream …
    In my garden I would rather like more blues. Here in North Norfolk the violett lavender is no dominating. I have got a lot of whites this year.

  5. Beautiful images – so delicate and such a soft feeling to them. We call the blue ones Harebells here and they’re prevalent at the moment – but more in isolation instead of mixed with dainty white flowers that looks like one of our mountain chickweeds.

    1. Our harebells, that we call bluebells in norwegian, appear in different environment and with different plants, but they dissapear if the neighbours get too big and widespread. So fertilizers (that makes others grow faster) and alien spieces like lupins, are bad for them. Thanks, Finesse.

  6. It scarcely rains at convenient times here in Chicago in the US. However, this morning I was walking beneath the safety of my umbrella on my way to work, and stopped dead in my tracks to gaze at the droplets of water dribbling down the Hydrangeas on the corner.

    Your photographs remind me of that moment. B-e-a-utiful.

  7. Bente: la palidez suave, delicada exquisita, de esta cosecha floral, resulta a mis ojos excelente. No soy nadie para felicitarte en tu menester ejemplar, pero me es obligado por contento hacerte llefar ni felicitación
    más viva.
    Gracias, muchas gracias. Suerte y ánimo.
