Summertime has been absolutely wonderful this year. Warm bright sunny days and the midnight sun have made the days very happy.
We are lucky in Alta to have so many natural features – salmon rivers, fjords, mountains, grassy fields and yes, swamps for the coveted cloudberries.
Our new animals have enjoyed the farm very much. (Above, Drage in the midnight sun.) The horses have explored our birch tree forest and swampland. The rabbits have lazed in the sun with all the grass they can eat. The chickens have been scratching in the forest and the sheep have been wondering around our hill slopes.
Our meals have been light. No time for extravagant dinners, the outdoors is always waiting for us and it is very impatient. (And yes, that is potato chips on the plate.)
The kids have made the most of the summer too. Playing with the animals, riding their bikes and splashing in the pool.
Alta summers are lazy and warm. That is just how we like it!
