“WHERE FLOWERS BLOOM, SO DOES HOPE,” said Lady Bird Johnson

De kjenner sine hager i dette landet. Mai er alltid en fantastisk måned i London og hvis du er i byen nå og liker blomster, så anbefaler jeg en tur til Chelsea Flower Show. Her er et par bilder jeg tok da jeg ble invitert for et par år siden. Kom mai du skjønne milde!  Engelskmennene er virkelig verdensmestere når det kommer til hager!

They know their gardens in this country. May is always a fantastic month in London and if you’re in the city now and love flowers, then I recommend a trip to the Chelsea Flower Show. Here are a couple of pictures I took from when I was invited a couple of years ago. The English really are world champions when it comes to gardening!

RED, WHITE AND BLUE 

Gratulerer med dagen!

The French have The Bastille Day, Americans have 4th of July, the Irish have St.Patricks day and the Norwegians have their 17th of May. I’ve often been asked what’s up with the Norwegians and their flag? And the first things that come to my mind are A: Freedom and B: The party is where the flag is. Wish you all a happy 17th of May! PS: This is a day where you’re allowed to eat as many hot dogs and as much ice cream as your stomach can handle ; )

JJ MIDWINTER

Surf’s up! Skummende bølgetopper og vind i håret – fotografen JJ Midwinter takes you there. Noen ganger er min verden nesten litt for fargerik, for kaotisk og for stillesittende foran dataen. Når to-do listen blir veldig lang og litt kjedelig, så trekker jeg gjerne  inspirasjon fra Instagram og kikker på andre menneskers liv – som jjdmidwinter’s for eksempel.

Surf’a up! Breaking waves and wind in your hair – photographer JJ Midwinter takes you there. Sometimes my days are almost a little too colourful, too chaotic and based around my computer. When the to-do list is very long and a little boring I seek inspiration through Instagram and take a little sneak peak into other people’s lives – like jjmidwinter’s for example.

ONE FOR THE MONEY, TWO FOR THE SHOW…

I guess mine is Blue Suede Shoes today. I especially like the part where he’s singing: ‘Let’s go Cat, go! It almost beats Hound Dog or American Trilogy or Always On My Mind or Jailhouse Rock or Burning Love or… it’s impossible to pick a favourite! Viva Las Vegas, Good Time Charlie’s Got The Blues, In The Ghetto, If I Can Dream… Gotta make that playlist!

ART MOVES YOU

Trenger du en pause fra hverdagen? Det gjør vi alle en gang imellom. Her er noen bilder fra forrige lørdag, da vi var i Tate Britain. Det er så magisk å gå fra rom til rom, fra epoke til epoke og kikke på det livet andre har malt og fotografert. Jeg tenker alltid på hvordan kunstneren levde da arbeidet ble utført, var det lett eller gikk det litt tungt og hva ligger bak alle valgene som er blitt tatt? Synes de selv at de fikk vist det de ville? Du kan klikke på linket til Tate Britain her, og se hva de har på programmet.

Need a break from a grey day? We all do from time to time. Here are a couple of pictures from last Saturday, when we went to Tate Britain. It’s completely magical to walk from room to room, from era to era and look at the life others have painted and photographed. I always think about how the artist lived when the work was done, was it easy or a little slow and what’s behind all the choices that’s made? Was the end result like they’d imagined? You can click on the Tate Britain link here. and see what’s on their programme.
