Ruby Autumn Norway


Two weeks ago we were rambling in the local district, turning our back from the sea to a fjord, woodland and inland.
The picturesque Monet bridge made us stop the car.




Time to return to old habits and joys. Like for instance blogging Ruby Tuesday 2.
The blond summer was busy, but now we're past Autumnal Equinox and it's time to slow down.



What a difference in the scenery just a few miles away.
We found the Norwegian edition of Monet's garden and deer preparing to leave the lowlands before the hunting season.A log cabin, smaller than any American shed, but a paradise to admire from the road to me.



A slow, but wonderful restful time of the year. I love being in it. Stretching out the joys of daylight as long as possible.
 

Shutting out the el.light in the morning. "Don't burn a hole in the day," my mother exhorted, long before Al Gore even thought of going green. In a short month the light will have diminished drastically. Carpe momentum is  the slogan. Time is precious.



Peacefully grassing

The deer are moving towards the mountains and the hunters are loading the firearms. We have too many deer for the time being, and even though they look breathtakingly elegant and lovely, they taste even better. I am so looking forwards to a tasty  autumn meal.

Home is the sailor, home from the sea and the hunter is home from the ground...

Welcome to
RUBY TUESDAY TOO

I'm so glad you are back blogging! I love the photos; so beautiful and yes peaceful. I've been to Monet's Garden in Giverney, France. But I love Norway's Monet's Garden. It is lovely.

Blessings and love,
Debbie

Felisol! Missed you!
Viewing your photos accompanied by words so fluent, yet few, brought me at the end of this day 11 PM Tuesday to that place of peaceful rest, which will care for me until tomorrow morning.

Glad you are back!

I'm so happy to have you back Felisol! I've missed you. Your voice always brings something fresh and makes me think. The pictures are so beautiful. I don't know of a season that isn't beautiful there.

Welcome back friend!

What a beautiful slice of Heaven on earth! Have you been to this enchanted place before? Or was it a treasure you stumbled upon? You are one step ahead of me relaxing as the changing of the guard for the seasons has taken place. What a good reminder to not let things in front of us .. go unnoticed. Your mother's quotes .. always gems. Would love to have an entire book filled with her words. You are blessed.

dearest felisol...i am so glad that mrs. told us that you had posted a ruby tuesday...so many times i have checked here and you weren't here and i am so glsd that you are now...
my favourite picture are the deer..i love them so much..it will be hunting season here too...as long as it is not a sport, i know that they are given to us of the lord to enjoy, but here in ontario, it is a lot of times just a getaway for a boozing party and these hunters shoot at everything in sight!...to me that is a sin ...i remember once too that one guy fed the deer corn during the year and then in hunting season, the deer came for his usual corn and the guy shot the go out moose hunting out west with his friends and he could never ever bring himself to shoot one...he is a soft touch i guess!

i love the bridge pictures you took felisol..always something comforting about a bridge that will take you form one side right over to the other..a bridge you can have faith in, just like the bridges that the the lord jesus places in our way when we are not sure which way to go..he will supply and be there right with you never forsaking!

i love the reflections of the log cabain and the canoe in the still water felisol....often i am sad in the autumn but these pictures have made me glad, especially the sweet deer..so inocent and yet given to people for food...in the millennium there will never be an animal that will die!.....i love you my dearest friend...love terry

So breathtakingly beautiful! I love your Norway Elise...thank you for sharing these bits of it with us. We enjoy our meals of venison too and already have some in our freezer. My son-in-law, granddaughter and grandson all got deer on Opening Day of the early season two weekends ago.
