Our seasons :-)

With a little help from my friend Smiling Sally … I finally will do a post…

I asked her if there was anything she’d like to know about Norway.. and she sent me 5 questions.. I will do ONE in this post.. :-)

1. What are the seasons/temperatures like in Norway?

Well… We have four seasons.. or so they say.. sometimes it feels like only two..

Scale

January, Febuary and March are winter-months…IF we’re lucky March can be springlike..

NOT A WHOLE LOT OF SUMMER compared to Winter is it?? and if the summer is bad.. it seems like Winter and spring/fall all year long.. I don’t like that!! So this year I am hoping for a nice and warm spring… followed by a beautiful summer!!

I thought I was real brave taking this photo…

Wish we had temperatures like this.. but we don’t.. unless we get an “indian-summer”..it happens… but not often enough.

Our temperatures vary from –20 (at most) to maybe 30 degrees Celcius (if we’re lucky and still didn’t have that indian summer)

The temperatures also vary within the country..and up north they get REALLY cold winters.. could be as cold as  this measurer can measure ;-)

Hi Monica :)

Your pictures are beautiful, especially of the bee! Your seasons sound like ours in Ohio, but in California it was spring and summer all the time. It's sounds great, but it's not. Anyway, you know how I feel about that ;)

Thank you for the bookshelf ideas!

OH Monica dear,
I Love the view out your door in the summer!! It must be really nice to live with a view like that!!!! And the heart your daughter made in the road!! HOW SWEET!!! Did she plant the flowers in it??? I may have to use that idea with the grandchildren this spring!!! They both enjoy planting flowers, just HATE the weeding! lol. Your season's are like ours here in Kansas! But our temps in the summer ARE in the 100's and I don't mean celius! :D :( depends on how you look at it... if you like the heat, it is good, if you don't... well you find the air conditioning! I like the heat myself!! I don't like winter! :D
my favorite times of the year are spring and summer (as you know!)
your pic of the bee... YOU ARE BRAVE!!! I would have gotten stung! lol.
I hope your having a wonderfully blessed day dear! It was really great catching up with what's going on in your life today! :D
