The joy of summer

This is turning out to be my kind of summer. The old rainy, cold and windy type of norwegian summer. Some sun, some days with warmth, then changing suddenly to cloudy and cold. I like the variation a lot.

Two weeks ago it was real hot again, the same kind of summer we had last year. This type of weather though was all my broccoli needed to start the flower heads. I have been eagerly awaiting these for so long. This is my first year growing broccoli, so I had no idea what it was supposed to look like when I could eat it 🙂 I had to turn to google and images there.

Finally! This is something I recognize. Photo taken during thunderstorm…

Flower-head on my broccoli. Can`t wait. Grow grow!


I have been working on a necklace for ages. Today I could finally list it on etsy.  All the tiny things and details that went into this, and yet it still looks big and chunky.  I suppose it is all good though, hope some of what I have put into it shows.
