Old farm

Sometime I stop and wonder .... if only theese old walls could talk ! This farm was once a beautiful place. People was born there and people died there. The place was full of laughter and cry...... if only theese old walls could talk..... In many years you could no longer see the houses and the farm was hidden in the wood . The woods are gone and the old farm lies there like a ghost. ... if only theese old walls could talk....

"Crime evening"

Each summer since 2001 there has been arranged a "Middel ages week" in Rollag, and Numedal valley, where you can take part in various and exciting adventures along the entire valley. This week there is a multitude of events at different privat middel ages farms, tours and concerts in rich decorated stave churches and middel ages buildings.

Last night there was a "crime evening", where we were told old local criminal stories and legends. The picture shows the two storytellers. :o)

You can see more pictures from last night here.

Ranunculus acris (Meadow buttercup, Tall buttercup)

This flower is everywhere at this time of summer. It has a beautiful colore and we call it "Smørbomst" and it means "Butterflower". When we were kids we took the flower and held it under our chin. If it made our skin look yellow it was a sign who showed that we liked butter a lot. It was a kind of children play. The flower is poisen however and the horses can eat everything on a field, but they allways leave this flower behind.

Løvetann , Dandelion( Taraxacum officinale )

This beautiful yellow flower grows everywere at this time of year. We call it Løvetann and if you should translate it directly to english it would be " Lions thooth" , but the english name is Dandelion . Some think this flower is a unwanted plant in the garden, but I think it is the most beautiful of all the flowers in nature this time of year.
