Mars / March.

Da er vi over i mars allerede.
Vi har hatt noen milde og solfylte dager den siste tiden, og det virker som våren har begynt. Men mars kan være lunefull, så det er godt mulig at snøen og kulda plutselig er tilbake igjen.
I mellomtiden nyter jeg de fine vårdagene :)

It's March already.
We have had some mild and sunny days lately, and spring seems to have arrived. Yet March can be a bit moody, so the snow and chill might suddenly return.
In the meantime I enjoy the nice days of spring that we are having :)




Morgensol.
Det er så herlig når solen og lyset kommer tilbake!

The morning sun.
I love it when the sun and the light returns!





Snøklokkene i husveggen som blomstrer :)
Det milde været har gjort at overalt i hagen titter de grønne spissene av løkblomster opp.
Det er flere snøklokker med knopper nå, og snart blomstrer de første eranthisene. 

Jeg så også årets første sommerfugl i dag!!! Det var en neslesommerfugl.
På den første mars! Det er rekorden så lenge vi har bodd her, har ikke sett sommer fugler så tidlig på året før.
Først så jeg en som satt i bedet ved haugen.

The snowdrops by the house wall are blooming :)
The mild weather has made bulb flowers come up all around the garden too.
There are more snowdrops growing buds now, and soon the first eranthises will open.

Today I saw the year's first butterfly!!! A tortoise shell.
On the first day of March! That is the all time record for as long as we have lived here, I have never seen a butterfly this early in the year before.
First I saw one in the flower bed by the mound.





Og så satt det to og solte seg på rekkeverket på verandaen litt senere.

And then a little later two more butterflies sunbathing by the porch.




Slik ser det ut i urtehagen på den første dagen i mars.
Det er fortsatt frost i bakken, så jeg må vente en stund til før jeg begynner å rydde. Men nå klør det i fingrene.

This is what my herb garden looks like on the 1st of March.
There is still frost in the ground, so I will have to wait a while before I can start tidying there. Now I am really looking forward to start gardening again.

Hello Hilde! Fantastic post regarding the weather in Norway!
Hope you are now very happy to look forward to a beautiful Spring and Summer to come.
I am a bit distracted with Medical research but it will be good for many once I get to a happy end.
Love/hugs: J/Bb :)))))))

My comment form was wrong.

We are all waiting together with you Hilde for the gardening adventure! It is so much fun to accompany you!
Have a sunny weekend!
Here for some change it is stormy and raining very heavily already for days!

Mia said...

Wow Hilde, så långt våren kommit hos dig, fjärilar och det hela. Vilken morgonsol du bjuder på och urtehagen ser ju redan inbjudande och lockande ut.
Mina snödroppar kan jag skymta men blommorna, dom får jag njuta hos dig.
Ha en fin helg :)

Thank you for the very nice comment on my blog :-) These really are wonderful pictures! The light is magical, the butterflies are wonderful - I love butterflies, but we don´t have any colourful ones in Iceland.
We are longing for springtime over here too...

Did you know, that "sommerfugl" in icelandic means something like "bird of summer"? :-) lovely word...

Sasha Fitzgerald said...

The sun is back! Gorgeous shots by the way. You are an amazing photographer. Are you seeing a lot of aurora borealis lately? I heard that Norway's skies have been lit up.

I love your herb garden! I can't wait to see pictures of it when everything is in bloom. Also, those butterflies are gorgeous. I've never seen ones like that... and so big! Amazing. I hope the weather stays warm so they will survive. :)

I hope you're having a wonderful week! :)

Lovely pictures Hilde. Your herb bed looks wonderful, no doubt, it will be humming with bees and fluttering with butterflies all summer long. Yes, I too am sure we will have some more bad weather yet. In England we have a saying for March. In like a lamb (good weather), out like a lion (bad weather) and the same in reverse. As yesterday and today are going to be good, will probably be stormy at the end of the month.

So beautiful pictures !
Spring is the most wonderful season isn't it? The most magical too !
By coincidence, I also saw the year's first butterflys yesterday :)
Thank you for your kind comment on my blog !
I'm so happy I finally found a nice place to live !

Hønemor said...

Så herlige bilder! Blir i god vårstemning av å se dem! Også snøfri hage alt! Ikke rart det klør i fingrene etter å komme i gang med vårryddingen ;-)

Sommerfugl 1. mars er veldig spesielt! Virkelig vakker :-)

Ha en herlig helg, vi håper det varme været fortsetter en god stund til ;-)

Joanne said...

So lovely to have found your blog and I see we have quite a bit in common!
Your tree and nature photos are very beautiful and I'm really fond of the Tortoise Shell butterflies... I often paint butterfly wings on my fairy characters.
The sun through the trees is incredible. Totally magical.

Best wishes,
Jo May.

Hei!
Nydelig bilder av morgensolen som skinner og lyser inn gjennom trærne! Sommerfuglene er ivrig etter å innta sin plass igjen.
Ha en fin helg!

Åh, vilka morgonsolsbilder! Jättehärliga! Snödropparna är verkligen vårens första underbara tecken, så fint med så många. Hos mig blir de färre för varje år.

Och så nässelfjärilar redan! Då måste det ha varit sköna värmegrader hos dig! Jag har inte sett några ännu. Hoppas de klarar sig!

Tack för dina kommentarer! Kul att veta hur andra gör!
Ha det gott!/Pia

Emelie Viklund Hermansson said...

Jättevackra bilder!! Jo, jag tror våren kommer tidigt i år. Det märks främst på alla bloggar, som rapporterar rekordtidiga vårtecken. Så även om jag inte ser några direkta vårtecken här uppe så får jag ju lite hopp om att våren ändå är på väg :) Vilken fin fjäril! Jag längtar tills de kommer hit :) Ha en fin vecka! :)

karisma said...

Gorgeous pictures. Looks like spring is in the air. We have not had much of a summer here this year and winter is looming not so far away.

Eldbjørg said...

Nydelige bilder, Hilde!
Ja, mars er lunefull. Vi hadde 10 varmegrader på Dombås den ene dagen og 10 den neste.
Nå kan du se kjøkkengardinene med elefanter på bloggen min. De ble sydd en dag med varmegrader og drypp fra takene. I kveld uler vinden og snøen rundt hushjørnene.

Lavina said...

Flotte bilder Hilde! Ser jo ut til at det er vår hos deg.. Hos meg ligger det snø ennå, så jeg venter med lengsel på våren... Men etter påske kommer den tror jeg..

Ha en nydelig dag!

Hi,Hilde.
You had a wonderful walk in the beautiful morning. What a bright sun to see!
It is first time to see that colorful butterfly.I am sure spring is knocking your door every day coming soon!!

Winter and spring compete in March and eventually spring wins no matter how late. We’ll have three cold days and four warm days alternately – it is our typical March. How exciting for you to have seen butterflies already. I like the orange light radiating into the forest and the snowdrops are so lovely which never fail to make me smile. Look forward to your herbs germinating.
