Just as suddenly as the summer flowers arrived, in the last week they have gone. It’s not immediately noticeable because there is still a lot of colour as the leaves are going golden and there are flowers in people gardens, but just about all the wild flowers have now disappeared.
Today Sarah and I went to play for a funeral at Lysbotn on Senja. The drive was beautiful so here are some pictures. The transition from summer to autumn is not uniform and quite localised – in some places the leaves are already dropping and in others, they are still green, so I am collecting pictures as I do various journeys. There are also a couple of panoramas from Lysbotn and Hundemyrholtet, both on Senja.
