From winter to summer in seven days.

I hardly can remember the intense snow fall a week ago, when I look at a day as today.

Today in a nutshell: sun, shorts, temperatures between 15° and 22° C, sandals, blue sky, t-shirt only, ice cream.

It looked like early spring with only some of the birches starting to come into leaf but it felt more like high summer with today’s temperatures.

Annika and I have been in the “Arboretum Norr” today, just five days later as last year. Last year we could see many different species of flowers, this year only some, mostly Tussilago and Alpine Penny-cress, the two flowers that use to bloom first in the season. No wonder, April and May has been colder than last year. But today warmth attracted many butterflies, such as this European peacock.

And Tussilago is a beautiful flower anyway.

    Det är bra, våren är en överskattad årstid. Slaskig och/eller dammig. Lika bra att få den överstökad på ett par dagar. Tacka vet jag den vår som vi låtsas att vi har här, alltså den från 15 februari till 15 april.

    Dear Olaf, a yellow flower upon a black ground, I like this very much. Ma HB

    Det finns länder som t.ex. Tyskland som kan ha en riktig lång och fin vår, Ingela. Här i Norra Sverige är våren max en dag, sedan kommer redan någon sorts av sommar.

    Dear Ma H B, the ground was quite dark already. I only increased the darkness in the computer to set the focus more on the flower.
