Here it is a dull season, still some weeks to the first snowdrops and snowflake open their bells.
While waiting I looked at some pictures from previous times.
The first 4 is from tours in the Ryfylkeheiene, a montane area between east and west in the south of Norway. Not the most alpine landscape but rather wild many places. Used to bring students there to learn outdoor life, ecology and names of common plants (unbelievable what they can not!).
The 4. shows a tourist cabin open for all hikers, but you have to borrow a key. In Norway it is hundreds of such places.
The 5. is a buttercup (Ranunculus montanus) I had for some years but this was the slugs' favorite!
The 6. is from a friend's garden. He collected Chilean firebush seeds in Patagonia and I germinated them and allocated plants to all interested. His specimen flowered two years ago, none of mine have yet!
