Thuesday June 29th
Today we have the third day this year, with nice
warm Summer weather. The first day with this kind of warm
weather was at May 16th. After this we have had a couple of warm
sunny days. But, today we have a wonderful day. 13 degreez
Celsius, sunny weather, and no rain or wind. I really hope that
we will continue to have this lovely Summer weather.
In spite of this cold weather and rain, I have been
working a lot in our garden.
We have changed our old
homemade garden entrance. The old one was put on two boxes with plants
in. The plants did not grow nice in these boxes. And I did not like
the boxes either.
It was raining when I
took this last photo, but I hope you may see the new garden entrance:
I am not finished with
this area yet.
The weather is still cold,
and the last few days it has been raining all day long. It is
raining today too, but today we have seen the sun in betveen the
Cecilie has been living 400
kilometres from us, when she has been at school. Now she is
finished at school, and has Summer holiday. This weekend we have
been driving and picked her up, and all her stuff. It was very
nice to have her back home again.
We used our caravan to get
her, and had a nice weekend trip on our way home. Here are a
couple of photos I took during our trip. This is where we vere
staing, during the night:
In spite of the bad weather,
I have been working a lot in our garden.
I have posted two photos from
flowerbed with sour soil.
And two photos from
the large flowerbed with perennials.
I also posted a photo from the
flowerbed with most bushes.
Monday June 14th
We still have cold days, here
with us. Often the temperature is below 10 degrees Celsius. We
have had some sunny days without rain. But there has been a very
cold wind. But I have been outdoors, working in our garden, and
staining our terrace floor, in spite of the cold weather.
We stained our terrace floor
last year, too. But this year it looked like this:
I used 3 days to
stain the floor and the furniture on our terrace. I did not like
the brown color we used last year, so this year I decided to use
a dark grey color. I think that is is much better with this new

Now it's a long time since I have written in my blog, so this is
going to become an update post.
had a very cold Spring here. We only have had two days with warm
weather. The other days the temperature has been from 6 to 10-12
degreez Celsius, with wind and rain. Some days it has not been raining,
and it has even been sunny weather, but these days it has been cold,
in spite of the sun, and often it has been a very cold wind. In spite
of the cold weather, I have been several times working in our garden,
and enjoying myself. I love to be in our garden.
At whitsun I went out and bought stain for our
terrace floor. Unfortunately it has been raining regularly, so we have
not been able to stain yet.
several years I have been dreaming about getting a rose called "Namdalsrose",
but this is a very popular rose, and I haven't found it. Some days ago
I found out that our local market garden have gotten some of these
beautiful roses, and I bought one.
This photo is not mine (unfortunately), but it's a photo I found on
the internet. My rose is very small, and have only a few leaves on. I
really hope that my rose will look like this in a few years:
At May 27th I started to move some of our hedge bushes that used to be
placed by the main road, at the end of our lawn. But several of these
hedge bushes have been broken by van's that are cutting the grass in
the ditches. Now I have started to dig down these hedge bushes another
place in our garden.
Friday May 28th I was on a trip to a wonderful island called Hysvær,
together with my collegues. This day was not very warm, but it was
sunny weather, and we had a wonderful evening at this island.
Some information about Hysvær:
Hysværøyan, built from driftwood found on the island. In addition to
traditional Norwegian food, you?ll get great stories from the owner of
the restaurant and you'll experiene the archipelago.
At Hysværøyan, the old school has been renovated, and is used as
accomodations. The islands is great for activities like kayaking,
fishing and birdwatching.
When we got to this
island, we were served delicious fish soup.
After eating, we went
out to take a look at this wonerful island.
During the last few days I have not been working
in our garden. But on Monday my hubby and I went out and enlarged on
of our flowerbed, to get some space to the new rose.
This is a photo of one of the tulips in our garden. I don't know the
name of it, but it's beautiful, i belive.
so happy about this sweet gift I got from Kia:
Thank you so much, Kia!
