End of May sunrise
Blackcap in my dreams?
I woke at 4am to the familiar song of the blackcap (munk) which had no doubt arrived with the warmer weather during the early hours…this is very late for my first blackcap of the year (I’ve heard them in the past even in late April)
I used it in a quick scrambled egg dish together with Amish onion (Allium x proliferum), sorrel flower shoots, ground elder (Aegopodium), nettle (Urtica dioica), Hydrophyllum virginianum (water leaf) with golpar spice.
These pictures can also be seen on my 700 plus album of Allium pictures on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150966880345860
A series of pictures taken from 8 am to 12:30 am this morning from beautiful clear skies to equally beautiful heavy rain…love the variability of our climate!

Extreme May salad
Yesterday, 19th May 2017, I spent several hours being filmed in the garden collecting and preparing a multi-species salad, predominantly perennials…and this was the result! How many? The recount will take some time….
More later :)
Thanks to Ane Mari Aakernes (camera), ably supported by Berit Børte…
