Norway is a winter Country.

There should be winter, sunshine, blue skies and snow, lots of snow.

Instead all we have is black frost, and all we have is a hazy frozen sky. The garden is without its protective blanket of snow. What will the concequences be? Will there be any flowers at all when spring comes or will they all have died?

I am not a great fan of the cold season and variation in seasonal activities, but now I am missing the snow.

Winter ought to Winter:

There is definitely a frozen beauty of the Norwegian nature at this time of year. The Garden is resting under a soft, white blanket. It is hibernating and building itself up for the next spring.

Something is definitely happening to the climate, maybe it is just cyclic variations but something has changed over the past few years.

We are of course in the realm of maybes but it still is a bit alarming.

Having reached the age of plenty, I fear these changes not so much for myself as for my children and grandchildren.
