Haze from East Europe

Last night the view over the fjord was so hazy we couldn’t see the mountains on the other side of the fjord despite clear skies otherwise and wondered if the smoke from the California fires had reached here (it was reported in western Norway recently) and this morning the sun was red as it rose through the haze. However, the meteorologists point to the source being strong southeasterly winds blowing up dust from dry agricultural land in Eastern Europe (=erosion), with possibly smoke from the Ukrainian forest fires mixed in!

Early Rise in Early April

This is the best time of year for getting up at the crack of dawn, lots of birdsong too! The sunrise at the moment is about 6 am…..but, in a few weeks, it will be 3 am which is a bit early! The long-term forecast is for clear-blue skies for the whole of Easter week here….with over 10C during the days…cold at nights to start with (it was -5C when the picture was taken) but frosts disappearing in a few days! Should be a great Easter week working in my gardens!
