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.

Looking for a warm place

With rain and only 14 degrees day after day, heat becomes more and more interesting.


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.

Summer in Denmark

This is how a Danish summer garden should look, – and it sometimes does.

This is how a Danish summer garden should not look, – but it does.
