Seasons in Scandinavia: April in Norway

I am not please with April this year. It had a promising warm start but it looks like it is going to end like a bleak November. What we've seen so far of April is rain, clouds, fog and damp brown soil. At least the birds sing loud, as if it was sunny. Can you imagine a month without sun? I wonder how the peach in the glasshouse nearby managed to cover itself in pink blooms.

That is why today I am going through Aprils past. And don't be surprised by the bright colors and shining photos - that is my nostalgia calling. Can you please call in the sun finally?

How is April treating you?


  1. Stunning as always! April has been kind of bleak for us, too. We've had a lot of rain and temperatures are cooler now than they were a month ago.

  2. Your photos are beautiful and I hope you get some sun soon. We have had some unseasonably cool weather, but the sun is shining and it promises to be a warm beautiful day.

  3. Rain, snow, ice and wind storms YUK!! Thank you so much for the beautiful images of Aprils past!

  4. Such beautiful pictures ... wish I could send you some of our sun and heat ... it's back up to high 80's today ... yuck ... I do think too cold or hot is not good. Thanks for sharing. Your country looks absolutely beautiful.

    Happiness to all.

  5. Sending you sunny thoughts from Oregon! We have been lucky to get some brilliant weather lately, I even wore shorts!

    Without the cold bitter winter, the summer sun won't glow!

  6. Beautiful. May I have your permission to do a watercolor of the first photograph?

  7. Great shots!! I wish your April was better. :-( We've actually had a very up & down April. Some really, really hot weather and then quite a lot of rain - it just can't seem to make up it's mind!!

    I hope your Spring shows up soon!!

  8. Beautiful photos! I am sure all you April showers will bring May flowers. Our weather has been a little strange this Spring, I am looking forward to some warmer weather.
