Lina that's brilliant. Now as for Chelsea Flower Show, I must go. Ever year I say I am going but I never get there. There are so many places I would like to see.

Maggi by the time I got back the shop was closed. But we did manage a nice lunch before we walked around the garden. The toilets were a bit basic though  ;D and our accommodation could have done with a it of updating  ;D

Today the weather has been nice. Although the sun still is weak there were no wind and the fjord was absolutely calm. I cut down a few trees but got in in time to take pictures of the beautiful sunset.

PS. The white spot in the foreground is the bird feeder.

Hi!

Strange weather…

We have spring instead of winter and snow: blooms first flowers. I am sending pictures from my garden:

The frosty weather has been good for vapour trails.  The first was on Sunday morning and the second on Monday afternoon.

Looks cosy but cold!
Still mild here, +5oC today and the roads were dry for once.
