PHOTO HUNT - HALF - May 15, 2010

This week I will present some Half open or is it Half Closed Tulips in our Garden here just south of Oslo, Norway. Hope you accept my Flowers..


As allways I do remind you of the Oslo Blogger Gathering.
This might be an once in a Lifetime experience.

August 19-22 - 2010
Meet the Mayor of Oslo, experience the Viking Ships, the Kontiki Raft and RA, have a virtuel skijump  in Holmenkollen (World Campionship Feb/March 2010) in the Viking Capital and walk on the roof of the new Opera Building, in pure Marble. Enjoy the Islands and visit the old Castle and fortress from 13th Century and all the Galleries, Munch Museums and enjoy all the live Music Concerts, small pubs, cafees and Seafood  restaurants.
You can even visit The Mini Bottle Museum with 53.000 bottles exhibited in 50 different installations. A World sensation.
Go on Moose safari or Fishing in Lakes, Rivers and the Sea, rent a Boat or kayack/Canoe and pick your own, wild Blueberries and Raspberries in the Hills surrounding the City.
Visit the Beaches and have a swim in the 100 km long Oslofiord.
Everything very close to Down Town.
And the most fascinating: Meeting bloggers from all over the World
Welcome to OsloBG - 2010

Tulips open more than that? I've never grown them, and have only ever seen them looking like Dutch folk art paintings.

The tulips are beautiful. If they are beginning to open, I'd say they are half-open instead of half-closed. As the blooms end, they are likely half-closed. Just my thoughts.
