Reflection, Tree & Leaf

Reflection

Ylva reflecting about her new life: this was taken on the third day after she was allowed outside into our large, fenced-in garden. I wonder if she still remmebers her fist few weeks of life when she was living on the street with her mom and siblings.
There's also a reflection of the skyline of our house in her eye if you look closely - you might need to look at the original image size, though, click on the image for that.

Catching up: Rain, Quiet, Outside

Catching up with pics from last year's trip again.

Rain
I suppose it can't get any nerdier: this is my husband, waving happily in the botanical gardens of Jokkmokk, Swedish Lapland, in the pouring rain. He loves his plants so much he doesn't mind any weather visting them, and hey, that's what good outdoor gear is for! ;o)

The weather was so bad we were the only vistors, and even later in the indoors Sami museum there were nearly no people - most seemed to prefer to stay snugly at home. I found it quite interesting as well, as the gardens were giving a good introduction to the flora of Lapland, but I didn't explore as thoroughly as he, and eventually withdrew to some dry area to wait for him.

Catching up: Weather, Name, Fork & Curved

Weather
There's this saying that there's no bad weather, just unsuitable clothing and gear... well, we had the right gear and were warm, dry and snug, but still would have preferred somewhat better weather at our visito the the North Cape - some visibility would have been nice. It feels absurd to need to consult your phone with google maps to tell you where you are. *g*

This is the famous North Cape globe, some 50 yards in front of the builing, but we couldn't see it when stepping outside and had to follow the fence at one side to find it at all. Just beyond that globe, the rock ends abruptly, and beyond somewhere. We're still joking that we've been at the North Cape, but we haven't seen it, as the fog didn't lift during the three days we stayed there.
