Papa about Flowers, Candlelight and Snow in Oslo

Papa lit a candle and had a relaxed weekend in Oslo

You my dear readers do know, we have long Nights during the end of Fall and beginning of Winter here in Oslo, Norway.
Since Winter Soltice, our Days have increased more than 1 hr. In less than a Month.

Anna, the Cats and papa had a very relaxing weekend.

The Amaryllis, expected to be in full flower during Christmas have also relaxed for some weeks, but this week end, it opend up in full beauty.
To our fully expectations and Joy.

Then, it started snowing. Not that much in the beginning.

I put out and lit a 72 hrs Candle Saturday afternoon. Here you see it on Sunday Morning. On our Winter Balconny.

Her you will have an impression how much Snow was falling down and created a beautiful white and soft carpet on our Balconny -Also the Candle Sunday afternoon - After nearly 40 hours burning.
Romantic, papa thinks.
I did pay NOK 23 for this Candle (about EUR 2,25 or USD 3.25)

Here you can see there is more snow and less candle. More than a Croc's seize. LOL. On Monday evening.

Have a great week.

That amyrillis is lovely. They look like lilies that we have here called hippeastrums or October lilies ('cos they flower mainly in October).

Candle and snow, that's a great combination, Tor. Glad the days are getting longer for you. Ours are getting shorter, it's light later in the mornings now by almost an hour.

I've missed reading your blog in the past months when I've been busy with kids and an internet connection that refused to work.

I'm so sorry to hear about your son. He sounds well-loved and a blessing to your family.

Take care.
