I have never seen these growing wild in th UK, and there were carpets of them on the hillsides north of Drammen. Not a promising thumbnail I'm afraid :))

They look so delicate :)



Amelia Royan on May 8, 2009

Hello Jen, I haven't spoken to you for a bit :)

Thanks for the compliment. These little flowers can't be that delicate - apparently there are deer and elk roaming in this forest, as well as many groups of children under 5 from the the local "barnehage", who are taken out every day in Norway come rain or shine :))

Greetings, Amelia

Merci a vous Vivi. I'm so pleased you like these little Blåveis :))

Amitiés, Amelia

Well they do look delicate Amelia but if they survive deer, elks and dainty cloven footed creatures then hardy is the word, especially where under fives are concerned!! ~~ Another nice shot dearest friend ~ ciao nick

Oh, how fragile they are! Never seen such flowers. Can you tell me the name, Amelia? Cheers, Klaus

Amelia Royan on May 13, 2009

Hello Klaus, I think they are called Hepatica, but I had never come across them before in the wild. There were carpets of them and so beautiful - I have not done them justice as there was a slight breeze :)

Greetings, Amelia

Nick, maybe the teachers didn't take the children up into the hills as far as this, and the elk are probably even further away thank goodness ;-)

Greetings, Amelia

Ah a lovely Blue picture ~ what a relief ~ I'm overjoyed ~ now didn't Simply Red do an album called Blue ? ~~ That must have been real Art

btw the composition of that unmentionable one is fantastic ~~ Miro ~~ it is ~~ butt ~ little cloven footed one ~ my eyes ;)

Ooooooh Amelia ..... I'm inconsolable ;-)..... I often look at your gallery but I haven't found this wonderful picture :-((((((((((((

A Norwegian spring for me :-))))))))) you're so kind Amelia. THANKS ;-). The photo is like a twin to your German spring photo .

I saw carpets of them ,too , but in white . They are really very pretty little flowers .

1000 greetings to the Norwegian Spring ;-)

I have to admit Nick that this is gentler on the eyes, and I am liking it more and more :))

Amelia Royan on May 14, 2009

Not to worry Benni, I posted a lot of Drammen photos in one go, so things were disappearing off my front page a bit too rapidly. But when I saw the hillside covered with Blåveis, I immediately thought of you :)))

Greetings to Germany, from Norway, Amelia
