Søndagstur til Jeløya.

I dag har jeg og moren min vært på søndagstur til Jeløya utenfor Moss.
Jeløya har en av landets rikeste floraer og flere naturreservater, og i tillegg et herregårdslandskap som er sjeldent i Norge.


Today my mother and I made a trip to Jeløya (Jel island) outstide the city of Moss.
Jeløya has one of the richest floras in the country and there are several nature reserves here. On the island there are also many manors, something which is rare in Norway.




Vi tok turen til Rød Herregård, som foruten den store gule hovedbygningen på bildet over også besto av en rekke andre hus. I de fleste av husene var det forskjellige gårdsbutikker og gallerier, samt en cafe.


We visited Rød Manor.
The yellow building in the photo above is the main building. It was surrounded by other small houses in which there were shops, art galleries and a cafe.



Det var så mange flotte gamle trær der. Trærne hadde mistet bladene nå, men jeg kan tenke meg at det må være fantastisk fint her om våren og sommeren.


Outside the manor there was a wood with lots of nice old trees. The trees have dopped their leaves now, but I can imagine what a beautiful place this must be in spring and summer.




Vi tok en liten runde rundt på eiendommen, og det var mye fint å se.

We walked around the property to have a look around.



En merkaba-statue på tunet.

A merkaba in the yard .



Det var også en liten rosehage der, men ikke mange roser i blomst på denne tiden av året.

We viewed a little rose garden, but there were not many roses in bloom at this time of year.



Det er sikkert fint her når alle rosene står i blomst.

I'm sure the rose garden looks lovely when all the roses are blooming.



Et lite tjern med vannliljer, og i bakgrunnen et lysthus.
Her var det fredelig, og vakkert selv i disig senhøstvær.


A pond with water lilies.
This was such a peaceful spot, and beautiful even in the foggy autumn weather we had today.



Også her var det en merkaba.

There was a merkaba here as well.



Selv om vi var innom og tittet i alle gårdsbutikkene kjøpte jeg ikke noe mer med meg hjem enn dette glasset med hjemmelaget tacokrydder.
Det var glasset jeg syntes var så fint, og tenkte at det jo kan brukes om igjen når krydderet er brukt opp.
Da jeg betalte fortalte damen i butikken at det var et antikt glass, så det skal jeg ta godt vare på :)


We browsed through all the shops at the manor, but the only thing I bought home with me was this glass jar with homemade taco spice.
I found the jar to be a little treasure, and thought it would be nice to reuse once it's emptied.
The woman in the shop told me it actually is an antique glass jar, so I will take good care of it :)

I loved your photos! The trees and gardens are beautiful. I think the bare trees make this place look even more enchanting and mystical!

That surely was a wonderful place to walk around with your mother Hilde!
And about the Merkabah: Many many years ago I made tetrahedrons with drinking straws - a big one, and smaller ones at the four corners and on the bottom - it made a beautiful mobile. Now you made me thinking about trying that again, I remember you need 12 straws for each one, but I do not remember how to knot them together. I will buy straws and try it again - if I succeed I send you a picture!
But now I come to think: maybe YOU know how to do it? :-)
I also looked up at Wikipedia all the Jewish symbolic meaning about it. Very interesting!

I remember you string all the straws in a row and then lay them into triangles, and then you knot them together to form the merkabah...

Jøss, så fin tur! Det så skikkelig mystisk og flott ut der, og om sommeren er bugner det nok av blomster der ja :-)

Kjempekoselig krydderglass! Moro at det var antikt da :-)

Ha en kjempefin uke :-)

Hilde said...

Tusen takk for koselige ord :)

Thank you for your lovely comments :)

Yael: I have a merkaba crystal :)
Have never made one myself from straws or sticks. Would love to see a photo if you decide to make one :)
