My Favourite Backyard

I haven’t really presented this place properly, while seeing how many posts I’ve published from this exact spot – an introduction is long time due!

I call it my "recreational garden"

I used to live in one of the yellow buildings surrounding this backyard. Now, I live in Drammen, but I’m still hanging out here a lot. Not only because of the flowers.

Ah, Magnolia. How nice is that? There is the man who makes the flower magic happen:

Somehow, summer arrived Oslo in April this year. I’m not complaining! I’ve been feeling like on summer vacation for the last couple of days. I’ve been reading many books in my personal little park, yes 😀

I wonder who've been watching me from all those windows!

Apart from those slightly paranoid thoughts, life is quite fantastic!

Yes.
Happy.

 

 

Å(aa)lesund

Brrr, my fingers are ice cold. Winter is coming… no, actually it’s here, even though it’s only the beginning!

She knows it:

I bet it’s already been snowing in Ålesund. But this is pretty much what it looked like, on a Saturday, three weeks or so back.

Ålesund is quite famous for it’s architecture. The night of January 23th, almost 110 years ago (1904) the city burned down. (Wiki for more>) The town was then rebuilt in stone, brick, and mortar – in Jugendstil (Art Nouveau), the architectural style of the time. What’s that? Check the photos below 😉
