Flower Chaos - Power Outage - Garden work and Wonderful Pre-Summer
In one weekend.
Well, it was warm and dry during this weekend. The seeds needed watering. It's rather steep, as you can see. And we arranged the watering the lazy way. LOL.
And papa did buy more flowers and herbs. For a while our Platform looked very chaotic.
And it was as well something to repair. While we still had Power.
- papa not shaved - out of gas and electricity - besides - haha - a loooong weekend.
Saturday we had a Power Outage from 2 pm until 7:30 pm. Caused by a sailboat that hit the Air-Cables to the Island just down under us.
After all, we prepared Dinner old-fashioned.
The Dinner tasted very well. Baked Potatos, Pepper, Tomtatoes, Fresh Herbs, Whale Beef.
Felicia did controle us while dinning. From the Roof.
Table decoration: Floating Flowers.
Basilikum we call these herbs - in Norwegian.
We have lot's of them - because we like the taste.
Our servant helped us with the Flowers. As you can see, she is very poor. But we paid her as deserved, with a couple of new Summer Dresses and food as well.
Which is probably more than GM can offer for their 250.000 plus employees.
What a sad and dramatic story. I'm thinking about all those wonderful people in Michigan ---
I have no words - you, my regular readers do know my youngest son is living in MI.
Do not blame the Photographer. It's after Midnight. We had very wellcomed, unexpected visitors. And lit up our outdoor fireplace.
Next Day it was time for cutting Branches. In the very steep terrain, well, two days after I still feel stiff. There is no stabel place to stand. Assistance was needed to climb safely down again as well.
And there are many more trees to cut.
Here you see the result - and this is only the very first beginning. It's steep, right?
All the "Jungle" in the background are to be cut down this Summer and used as heating in our Fireplace during the Fall.
Down right, we have Herbs. One of several spots.
Monday afternoon, it was still many boats out at the Oslofjord.
A wonderful pre-summer we had this Pentecoste Long Weekened, with clear blue sky and temperatures 24-28 C (75 - 82,5 F), which we Norwegians considers very comfortable.
On the other hand, mountain roads were block - avalanches and strong winds.
More to come...
