Sunday outing.

I dag har vi vært på sykkeltur i marka i nydelig og varmt septembervær.
Målet for turen var Stordammen der det vokser en liten og svært sjelden bestand av rød nøkkerose, som vi gjerne ville se.


Today, in lovely and warm September weather, we went for a bike ride in the woods .
We were heading for Stordammen (the Great Pond), to see a small and very rare population of red water lily which grows there.



På bildet over kan de røde nøkkerosene sees på vannet midt i bildet.

The red water lily can be seen on the water in the middle of the photo above.




Opprinnelig har det bare vokst hvite nøkkeroser her.  Denne røde nøkkerosen ble oppdaget i 1997. 
Utifra det jeg har lest finnes det bare en bestand til av rød nøkkerose her i landet.


Originally there were only white water lilies growing here. The red water lily was discovered in 1997.
From what I have read there is only one more population of red water lily in Norway.



Vi fikk se tre røde nøkkeroser i blomst, pluss en som var i ferd med å springe ut. 

We got to see three blooming water lilies, plus one bud just about to open.




Nydelige var de, og blomstene var store.
Noen av bladene kunne også se ut til å være litt rødlige.


They were absolutely beautiful, and the flowers were huge.
Even some of the leaves seemed to have a hint of red.




En fin dag ved vannet :)

A beautiful day by the water :)

Eventyrlig vakkert!
Blir rørt av dine bilder ved det idylliske vannet, med de enestående Nøkkeroser!
De må vel være vernet?

Wonderfoll pinctures, the lake like an Mirror and the "Seerosen"(in German), I do feel the special silence there.
I did also like the Clematis, what a rich flowering. Did you ever tried to use them for dyeing?

I did not comment much the last two weeks - but I saw and enjoyed all your posts Hilde!
And this one is so special - I never saw that flower, it is so beautiful, it left my mouth open in awe! I am very glad you had your eyes and soul on them (and your camera too!).
:-)

Hilde said...

Thank you, Seijastiina :) Have a great week you too.

Thank you, Anne, glad you liked the photos.
I have never tried the clematis for dyeing, don't know if they will work. Perhaps I'll make a small test dye.

Takk, En helt uvanlig hverdag :)

Thank you, Marylene :) I'm so glad I got to see the water lilies, they were beautiful.

Thanks, Barbara :) It really is a beautiful and peaceful place to visit.

Thank you, Eva :)
