End of summer

These photos will be my my contribution to Scott Thomas latest assignment, “End of summer”. The summer in Denmark ends in August, but the assignment rules asks for recently taken photos, so I will include this last photo which was taken some days ago, it definitely says “End of summer” to me!

Summer part 2, July

The weather in July can change from cold to warm as the wind blows, so to say. Because of the cold June, we didn´t expect much of a beach party in July, and was prepared for creative activities, as seen at the ipad / camera photo. As the day passed, the weather changed and suddenly the sun was shining and all kind of water equipment was taken to the beach. Nothing last for ever, nor does the good weather, but we were more than thankful for the warm days we got on our holiday in Jutland.

Summer it was, autumn it is

According to the Danish calender system, three months of summer has ended and autumn started, September 1.

I haven´t really been blogging much this summer, though  thinking of doing so almost daily. I hope my little summer resume will convince you about my pleasure of being a part of this “reading and writing community”, which are so inspiring. Thank you for all your good blog posts made with heart and soul, I am always excited to see them, and well entertained while  studying them. Now, back to work.

How was summer actually this year?

In the beginning  very rainy.

And windy. The sailors enjoyed that.

A  warm evening, – has summer arrived?

No, not yet. No summer ahead, just the sight of Sweden.

Then suddenly the heat and a very strong sun broke through. Protection was needed.

But only for a short time, then everything went normal again.

Typical summer lunch can be comforting,  served with a cold beer. And a sweater.

The happiness of having finished 13 years of school are not affected by any type of  weather. In the end of June, yelling and singing can be heard all over the city, when graduates are driving from house to house, to visit their families.

June 23, Sankt Hans aften (“St. John’s Eve”) still chilly.

Evening walk at the beach in the end of June.  Not particularly crowded. Would all summer be like this? It seemed so. Many people lost their patience, packed their suitcases, and travelled to the south of Europe.

Not me, I was going to Jutland, wearing sweater and rubber boots. (There has to be just a few people left in the Country, in case something happens.) But that was in July, the second summer month. I´ll tell you about this in my next post. For now I´ll end the story of June, the first and very wet summer month.

Summerdays

and the weather right now….

 

Spring / summer collage

Today is the last day of spring, tomorrow will be the first day of summer, and time for drinking cold white wine under a nice blue sunshade. Spring was very warm with sunny days and temperatures up to 25 degrees, but now when summer arrive,  the charming unpredictable weather has changed and it is reported that June will be cloudy, rainy and cold. 12 – 14 degrees, or perhaps even 15 now and then. A hot rum toddy is probably more appropriate to the weather then, but the sunshade can still be usefull as protection against the rain. Unless the wind blows it away of course. I took a lot of photos at the sunny days of spring, perhaps I should laminate some of them and take them with me under the sunshade, to help getting the right ambience. Summer is comming and the stock of rubber boots in most shops is decreasing. I must go now, to buy some.

Autumn leave

A bit too early, if you ask me.

Squirrel for tea

An unexpected guest for tea and  scones. Well, this is not really a scone, rather a soft roll, – but I think my guest had other worries.

(These photos are taken through the window with 2 layers of old glass. Just to explain the photo quality.)
