The Weekend In B&W – «The Troll Forest»

I was in a typical Norwegian «troll forest» the other day. I share a picture from this trip with you! My contribution to  «The Weekend In B&W»

A fairytale – Thumbelina’s crown?

Is this Thumbelina’s crown?

And this is the rest of the plant. I wonder, what kind of plant this is? If you know, please tell me!   The «crown/fruit» is half a cm high. The leaves are approximately  one cm. I think the little black decoration in the middle is the seed. Again and again the nature impress me by all the different shapes it makes in fruits and flowers. This is my contribution to «FlowerArtFriday». – «ColorConnection»

Smakfullt handverk

Pressenterer dette smakfulle handverket i kulisser av tradisjonelt handverk. På dørstokken til stabburet ser en smedens flotte hengsler på døra. I tillegg ligger kakene på et stettfat dreid ut av et stykke tre hvor fat og fot går i ett. Fungerer fremdeles etter over 100års bruk! Dette blir mitt bidrag til «Ordlös Lördag»  og etter hvert «MellowYellowMonday»

Kjeksen anbefales som følge til ost eller rett og slett til en god munnfull. Her følger oppskrifta: 3 dl lettkokte havregryn, 3,5 dl hvetemel, 2-3 ss sukker, 1,5 ts bakepulver, 1 dl linfrø, 100g smeltet smør, 1dl melk. Bland det tørre og ha i smør/melkeblandingen. Rør godt sammen og kjevle ut til ca 1/2 cm tykk leiv. Stanse ut kjeks med et glass. Stekes i varmluftsovn ca 160 grader til passe lysebrun farge (mellow yellow)

This is the treasure, a Crane family…

They did not like our presence!
