A colourful day.

Earlier this summer I took my German friend who is staying with us to the Arboretum in Svinvika, abour five minutes by car away from our farm. It was just the right time, as most flowers were in bloom. Located on a hill by the fjord, the arboretum was founded in the 1940s and is known […]
