Regnværstur / A hike in the rain

hike in the rain1

Selv om det duskregnet da vi sto opp i dag, kjente vi at det var på tide med en tur i skogen. Og ingenting er vel bedre enn en tur etter et friskt regnfall hvor alt lukter godt!

Even if it drizzled when we went out of bed today, we felt it was time for a hike in the forest. And nothing is better than walking in the forest after a heavy rainfall when the air is fresh!

Og ja, det var ganske kjølig i dag så det var godt med luer som varmet rundt ørene ;)

And yes, it was rather cold today so it was good and warm with hats ;)

Det var også godt å varme seg rundt bålet mens vi grilla pølser.

It was great to get warm by the fire too while frying sausages.

Vi gravde frem flere steiner til bålgropa vår, og da dukket det opp mye fin sand under lyngen. Ingen tvil om at det har vært hav en gang her oppe...

We duged for more stones for our fire place and lots of this fine sand was under the heath. No doubt that there has been a sea here once...

Berries

Det begynner å bli en del bær også, men de er langt fra modne ennå.
Blåbær, grisebær, tyttebær og molte.

It becoming berries too, but they are not ripe yet.
Bilberry, bunchberry, lingonberry, and cloudberry.

Vi fant ett modent moltebær ;) Eirin og Endre delte det, men det falt ikke helt i smak...
Så nå håper vi bare at det ikke fortsetter med regn og kaldvær slik at de blir modne alle sammen.

We found one ripe cloudberry ;) Eirin and Endre shared it, but they didn't like it... So we're just hoping for the rain and cold weather to stop so they get ripe.

Eirin fant en liten møll som var skadet av regnet.

Eirin found a moth that had been hit by the rain.

Wildflowers

Det er kommet flere blomster også siden sist vi var i skogen :)
Harerug, fuglevikke, småmarimjelle, flekkmarihånd og vendelrot - hvit og rosa.

There is more flowers in the forest since last time we was here :)
Alpine bistort, tufted vetch, small cow-wheat, heath spotted orchid and marsh valerian - pink and white.

Vi oppdaget også at det var en del skum rundt omkring på plantene og blomstene.

We saw that there was some foam on some of the plants and flowers.

Vi tror dette er larven til en skumsikade.

We think this is the nymph of a froghopper.
