A Sunday in November


A beautiful Sunday in November... a rare treat indeed, amidst all the rain. And what a lovely day it has been. Clear blue sky and the longed for sun (alas, without much warmth in it).


I have been away this past week, in Finland, to be precise (hence the recent silence her in my blog). And I am afraid to say the weather was much the same there...


The hens have really enjoyed their outing today, still hanging out there, even though the sun has now set and it is quickly getting darker.


Tomorrow it will, no doubt, rain again. But the chooks have had their day, and so have I. A new week tomorrow... and only a couple of weeks till December. Is Christmas on your mind yet...?

Herlig denne søndagen vi ha hatt idag. Vi har hatt en deilig tur i skolen, selv om det er fryktelig bløtt. November kan også ha slike dager. God søndag til deg.

Mia, why the flowerpots on the poles? I have always wondered. Love your blog.

It's a BEAUTIFULLY sunny day, here, too. Slightly warm even.... what am I doing here in front of the computer? (Tired after church - that's what! ;)) I think that I'll just read on and not comment but I send my pleasant greetings from New England!

The sun makes everything so beautiful, doesn't it? I especially love the photo of the chooks and how the sun falls on them. Enjoy your week.

It's good to appreciate the rare sunny days in November. We had a few hours today before gale winds began and went for a short walk. Your hens look so pretty in the sunlight. Have a good week, Mia.

Yes, I'm thinking about Christmas - have too many projects on the go, I think.

Hi Mia, I too am wondering about the flower pots on the poles ... they look good but is there a reason for doing this?

Hi Jill & Rose

Thank you for your lovely comments. As for your query about the flower pots... it is in fact an often asked question. I do have to admit the they are there mostly for a decorative purpose. But they are meant to act as scarecrows (or so I have read, even though I have no proof that they actually work!) Also they initially had a protective purpose... to protect me from poking my eye or hurting myself, but then the poles were much shorter. Which, of course, is not an issue with these tall poles.

So the long and short of it is... mainly decorative!

Så pene, ryddige rader du har i grønnsakshagen. Blir helt misunnelig.
