Just a few weeks ago it was 3 degrees and rain and hail pouring down. Now we have had 30 somethin degrees for days, and it is going to stay that way for some time. At the time warmer than Mumbai and mexico City, that is very unusual for the central part of Norway. It is SO warm, but I am not complaining. I just have to think 3 weeks back, going to a music festival, it has a cooling effect.
The thing about Norway, especially where I live or up north, you never know how the weather will be: be prepared for everything, because it can change many times during a day. Not so this year, at least we had a lot of real summer untill now. It is great, but it also means I don’t get enough time to do all the photography I would like to.
I especially like going to the forest, or other places where different plants are growing. And moss and mushrooms. There are not many mushrooms yet, but the Red Banded Polypore (Fomitopsis pinicola) below is to be admired.
So the days are flying, and I have to enjoy summer as long as it lasts, like sticking my nose to the roses of the old, Norwegian kind to feel the scent. We call this one hurdalsrosen, the rose from Hurdal. Have a nice summer, everyone! (And nice winter in Australia). By the way, the editor for making post have changed a lot, so I hope I am getting this right…
