A Misty Midnight Ramble

For the past couple of days here in the arctic north the weather has been gloomy and wet...which is naturally how I prefer things to be. As a true Oregonian at heart I am always the most comfortable in grey skies and lots of rain. We had another midnight ramble the other night when the weather was just starting to turn stormy and a cold mist was moving slowly in across the fjord. Though the skies are bleak, the land around us has brightened, the verdant landscape dotted with blue and yellow wildflowers and purple lilacs peaking out between the leaves.

 The lilacs are blooming! They look beautiful and smell so sweet.

 All along the river and the fjord the landscape has become verdant and lush, overflowing with vegetation.

The mist rolling across the river on our way into town.

 Down to the fjord.

 This looks a bit like a little hobbit house.

 Back across the bridge and homeward bound.

  1. It is so strange to me that it is midnight and the sun is out! Very beautiful!
