To translate "Nu livnar det i lundar" into English is a challenge I leave to philologists with special interests in "New" Norwegian. However, the meaning behind is in a poetic way to describe that winter is over and Springtime has arrived.
I therefore leave the Easter Credo of the crucifying of Jesus and believe some of you have taken that message to your heart during last week. Maybe you find Lucifer in the painting below. If not, return to my previous post and read Tom Egeland´s book.
As spring is here, see some of my springtime photos from around the world:
In the westernmost point of Europe, Cabo Raso, west of Cascais Portugal the beautiful beach flowers have defied the hard climate and show their colors to praise Spring.
In Vienna, Austria the flowers in the parks have because of intensive nurturing come a little bit longer, but it is still early April when this photo was shot
Back to Portugal. This time to Tavira at the south-eastern Algarve coastline where spring-flowers are everywhere.And when the Spring Beauty ( Scilla Siberica ) are blooming in Rosenborg Garden, Copenhagen Denmark,the snow has not left Tullarbo and cover most of the lawn, sowe are heading towards AfterSki at Aker Brygge instead. "Nu livnar det i lundar." It is Spring in Oslo.
