The pink Beautybush (Fagerbusk or Kolkwitzia amabilis) starts the Photo Safari on my 500 sqm parcel at Solvang 4. Walking around on sunday afternoon I see more and more of the flowers that are blossoming, and behind the bench my Chives (Gressløk or Allium schoenoprasum) are showing their beautiful light purple color.
This flower showoff is meant to be my contribution to the PhotoSafari, and if any non Norwegian also want to participate see the rules at Petunias Blog
On the other side of the cottage the Pink Peonies (Peon or Paeonia) are opening up their petal and spreading their flower sense all over the area.
The Iris and the Rosebush and the one with the blue bells (we call her "Aunt Ragna" because she infiltrated the ground many years ago) will also show their beauty
This monday I have not forgotten the Odd Shots.
Since the Photosafari are connected to new life, my Odd Shots Monday is connected to death.
At my visit to Portugal a month ago I entered one of the largest Chapels of Bones in the Portuguese city of Evora. At the Church of St. Francis, built by Franciscan monks between 1460 and 1510, the chapel is constructed of the bones of some 5,000 people. The inscription above the entrance carries a ghoulish message to visitors: “We bones that are here are waiting for yours.”Click to see more of the Chapel`s History
