This week’s pictures are from our trip to Tjorehagen at Radøy 2 weeks ago. Olav Tjore was a keen gardener, and the garden he built now contains around 300 different kinds of rhododendron, lots of other plants, three dams that he dug out and a stone bridge. It’s a really nice place to visit in May-June. We were an all female company with us, four of our nieces, our mothers, my sister w/mother in law and my sister in law w/ mother. Oh, not quite all female, the two dogs are both males.
Maya (my sister in law) and I brought our cameras and macro lenses and were mostly found bent over with our lenses stuck into some flower. The kids at some point informed us that we looked rather silly, and I suspect that they are right.
I have conflicting feelings about this next one. I like the picture, but at the same time I have this feeling that it’s the kind of picture you usually find on a card, accompanied by some kind of wise or soppy poem. The kind of cards I detest. Oh, well.
I don’t know much about butterflies, but a little research taught me that this one is called Rapssommerfugl in Norwegian, Green-veined White in English and Pieris napi in Latin.
To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme you must post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky at that Saturdays Snapshot post at At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and can be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. All Alyce asks is that you don’t post random photos that you find online.
