Torgeir, our oldest son, had volunteered to make dinner last night. A late dinner, unlike when we usually eat. But 8 o'clock was what suited all of us. When he started his work in the kitchen he realised that Marta and her friend had eaten the noddles he had planned to use in his wok. Starting late he was in a hurry to finish....Ingrid had an appointment as soon as we had eaten.
While Torgeir started to cut the vegetables I walked over to the grocery store for more nuddles.
It was snowing heavily. The perfect time to taste snowflakes

A Blue Hyacinth flower to go with Britt Arnhilds Blue blogs.I have just been reading her many blogs about food, opera, and the garden. They are full of lovely warm storys. The house in the woods has 800 posts with lovely photos to illustrate the prose. Not bad for someone whos first language is Norwegion.http://brittarnhildshouseinthewoods.typepad.com/brittarnhilds_house_in_th/The Blue Cafe is here:http://thebluecafe.blogspot.com/And finally the Blue Garden with some dreamy winter pictures of snow and tree branches:http://brittarnhildsbluegarden.blogspot.com/Someone who blogs almost as much as me. Hope you all check her lovely blogs out :)

Yew, or "barlind" as it is called in Norway, was a new tree to me when we moved in here 6 years ago. Over the years I have come to love it; the green it gives us all year, the privacy it gives from life outside the garden, the way it gives shelter to birds and squirrels, the shade it gives when I sit at the Blue Table writing my reflections.

I plan a rainbow garden this year. Will plant seeds which will give flowers in all colours during the period of lent, and it will be a reminder of the rainbow God set in the sky. The rainbow which is God's sign of hope.
