The summer bouquet

Heather in a vase 2

Jutland has many areas with heather, one of them is the area that we use to go to for holiday. We use to take a small bouquet of heather with us back home and put it in an vase without water, to look at until we are going back next year for a new bouquet. I found a photo of a heat  in Jutland at Wikipedia.

Update:  Wikipedia link about the heat

      Nice, I´ll keep an eye at your blog. As far as I remember you had some at your blog last year? I was actually thinking of you when I made this post, because of these photos.

    I like your composition of masculinity and femininity in the same picture, it makes a strong statement.

    I’ve never seen a Heather before, does it have aroma?

    • giiid on

      A bouquet of heather (in Danish called LYNG)doesn´t have any aroma, but at the heat is different, this place has a wonderful nice aroma comming from the special type of soil that heather grows in,- and ofcourse from the other flowers and trees growing there. We have a delicate type of honey called heather-honey (LYNG HONNING). It´s not only the aroma that is nice on the heather, also the sound from the birds and insects living there are making it a nice experience to be there.

    Beautiful photo, Birgitte!

    I am thinking about food right now — nearing lunchtime! So I wonder if “Lingonberries” grow on the heath, too!

    • giiid on

      I had to look that word up, Ligonberries. Blogging is such a good way to learn more. The answer is Yes, there are ligonberries, and many other kind of berries. Maybe I should make a post about the heat, it is an area, that has to be protected against…other kind of plants and trees. My blogfriend in England, are soon going to post some photos of the heat around her home.

    I used to take a sifting of sand from the beach and a bit of crumbled sweetgrass. Now I just live where I used to vacation.

    • giiid on

      I once got a very nice present; a small cigarbox (without the cigars!). On top was written: “A summerday at the beach”. Inside,including the lid, it was covered with sky-blue paper, and filled with fine sand, small stones and shells. This was such sweet present to get, I still like to open it and take a look.
      Maybe a way to keep all this sand, that we bring home every year, and don´t know where to place, – us who have to leave paradise after some weeks, of course 🙂
