Scandinavian Spring: March in Norway

March has it all! The snow, the spring, the flowers, the sun... It is a rich, vibrant month, carrying new aromas, views and vibrant colors on the wings of the spring wind. Once it was even the first month of the year exactly because of the awakening it brings.

March in Southern Norway has been a good friend this year - warm and gentle. We already forgot the crocuses but still expect the daffodils. And here I am, in between flowers, on the ground (again) with my camera. The buzz of the bees reminds me there is much work to be done and I walk away to the next sunny spot and the next perfect setting for a photo.

Enjoy March in Norway as I have captured it on my walks.


How is March going in your part of the world?

  1. Seriously, Norway is gorgeous. I love these photo posts.

    March was ridiculous here in Chicago. It's normally about 50 degrees this time of year, but we had a couple of weeks in the 80s. It's a little cooler now, but it was so weird.

  2. Gorgeous!!! I'd love to be on one of those walks with you. :-)

    Our March has been a mixed bag here in Los Angeles this year. Warm, cold, wet...but we do need the moisture, we've had a very dry winter. It's almost done now and then on to April!! (I like March though...it's my birthday month, today actually!! ;-)

    1. Today?! Have a very happy birthday, Meeling! I wish you to find your greatest inspiration this year that will boost your creativity even further than you have expected!

      And, because you say you would love to be on a walk with me, can I congratulate you with the video of my yesterday's post? I am sure it will give you the sense of what it is to be around here :))

    1. I sometimes think that too. But then I try to get down to earth and be too showy about it :D

      Slovenia has some pretty amazing nature too though!

  9. Your town looks so peaceful. Gorgeous photos, as always! Spring has brought with it many allergies for me. I'm having a much worse reaction this year for some reason, but the weather has been beautiful.

    1. Thank you, Mary. I hope you get better soon. I guess it is simply terrible to have seasonal allergies... takes out the pleasure..

  10. Breathtaking, especially that gorgeous blue sky. Although that field of crocuses was lovely too. We've also had a mild March, although today Mother Nature reminded us that the cold weather isn't completely gone yet. Some snowflakes made for a lovely backdrop this morning. :)

    1. Oh, it doesn't seem fair to see snowflakes just when you thought spring has come!
