Looking even more like a sea monster / serpent this morning! Around 220 Eider duck (ærfugl) were in the bay this morning. I could hear theirfunny calls from the house!
Great to be home again after my non-stop tour of Eastern and Mid-West USA. 12 talks and 2 walk and talks complete without any deviations from plan! Thanks to all for making it possible and to the Midwest Wild Harvest Festival and Atlanta Botanical Garden who shared my travel expenses.
However, much to do to put my 3 gardens to bed for the winter!
I finally discovered a useful IKEA product :) The 38th consecutive year moving seaweed from beach to garden!
It was a dramatic night here with high winds, snow, hail and there was even a thunderstorm at 4 am (not common in winter here!)….a Polar Low (polar lavtrykk).
It was stormy on the fjord today, it’s now 8 days since the last frost, and no frost in the 10 day forecast…. :(
It reached +8C here on New Year’s Eve!
Goldeneye (kvinand) displaying (with great black backed gull /stormåke)
Jackdaws (kaie) coming in for landing below the house in the bay! It’s a hard winter for them with continuous snow cover!
Pushed the bike along a path through the woods with protrubing tree roots looking for some late edible fungi…
Some pictures taken on the beach and rocks below the house while being filmed yesterday harvesting seaweed!
