Magnar
I must second Davids remark I was planning to say the same thing (great minds think alike and so on)! I know Carlberg is Danish but they now own breweries in Sweden that used to be Norwegian so they own Norwegian breweries too so today the saying can be relevant.

Nice to see the variation in the Dactylorhiza  ;D and the Gymnadenia conopsea is great :o Did You only show the best one or was this the only one?

Kind regards
Joakim

There were hundreds of Gymnadenia and thousands of Dactylorhiza only along the road up to the cabin. How many in the whole area one can only guess.

Wonderful pictures Magnar, a great look at some Norwegian flora. That's one very handsome young lad too. But then, I'm now sure that all Norwegians and Swedes ARE very good-looking. :)

I must say You placed the cabin in the right area then :) :o 8) ;D
Are You lucky enough to have any on Your property as well?
Kind regards
