Some "blue" ones today.

Cicerbita alpina, commonly found in moist subalpine open woodland. They say the bears do like this plant very much!


The bears surely enjoy their salad Trond :) In Norway I guess the elks and reindeers might be interested.
The moist meadow with Salix glauca is a beautiful sight.

It ends up looking like my old garden shed? Or maybe it becomes a set for an episode of Wallander..?  ;)

Thanks for your photos. Trond. Some of your plants are also native over here. Campanula glomerata grows on limestone not far from me.

Well, we have both elks and reindeers around although they are rarely seen.

So you have a similar building?  :)

I don't know about Wallander but Mission Impossible maybe - Tom Cruise is expected any day I have heard! (At least somewhere in Norway.)

You are welcome Ian. Yes, I think both some plants and some animals (including birds) are native both places! Although I rarely photograph animals/birds.

671611-0

Trifolium medium, a common clover from the seaside up to about 1000m. It flowers a little later than the red clover (T. pratense).


671613-1

Saussurea nuda, not as showy as its east asian cousins. Common in low alpine vegetation.


671617-2

Parnassia palustris, common especially at moist sites where the soil is mineral rich.


671615-3

Achillea ptarmica, usually a weed in disturbed areas and along roads. Here it grows in an old hay meadow at 950m.




Aconitum lycoctonum spp. septentrionale. This huge plant is a very rapid grower. It is often found where the snow linger for a while in late spring and summer. The colour of the flowers vary from dark to very light, almost white.

Moss, lichens and fungi.

Cladonia stellaris, a very common lichen.


671625-2

Pines and rocks. Typical habitat.


671627-3

Looking for "molter" Rubus chamaemorus.


671629-4

Sedge in water.

Lots more great plants-- love the colour on the Hieracium... I wanted to grow aurantiacum till I realised it was prohibited noxious here...lol ( though I've never seen any).
I like to see old buildings-- they are a little sad on one hand, but I also like to see nature retaking the place :)
Strong colour on the Trifolium.. we don't have that one (as far as I know) pratense only sometimes gets strong colour here... it is not early, though, flowering mid summer on...

Trifolium medium always has that strong colour but T. pratense differs from almost white to even darker than T. medium.

Trend,

I am finally able to catch up on some of the postings over the last month or so. I enjoy the photographs of your countryside.  8) It is very beautiful.

Thank you for sharing all the photographs.
