Scandinavian Autumn - November in Norway


November is a special month. It has a subtle character and if it were a person, I am sure it would have been classified as a melancholic introvert. The early days of November open themselves to the first shy frost and the sea, wild as it is, slowly prepares itself for more substantial cold. As days progress it gets calmer and calmer.

November is a month of reflections. It is the time of the year when quietly the leafless trees look down to the mirror-like water and mourn their bare branches, falling slowly asleep. Some of them have kept their apples just to make sure they will have feathery visitors for just a little while more. 

This month I am starting a linky party in which you will be able to share how YOU see nature and the progression of the seasons, so I can't wait for you to link up! Just scroll to the end of the post to learn how to do it.

And now, enjoy November in Norway as I've seen it in the past few years.

  17. I am trying so hard to follow the instructins to create a link to your site. HELP! I don't have Linky tools. I have had no luck embeding a link into the text of my post.
    I am new to blogging so I have no idea how to do this.
    Please feel free to look at my blog and give me some pointers. I am loving your blog by the way!

  22. Thank you, Kathy. You are right about water. I wouldn't want to live away from the sea. The experience is so rich and rough sometimes!
