Whither Wander You?

… How now, spirit? Whither wander you?

Thorough bush, thorough brier,

Over park, over pale,

Thorough flood, thorough fire.

I do wander everywhere, …


The collection of pictures is from everywhere 😉
This summer is rich in natural beauty.
I found amazing hawthorn in a military training area.
They had shooting drills in a separate area, so no danger.
By the river I find white throated dipper in winter, but now the bird is back home in Norway.
The meadow grass glittered with dew, and everything oozed with Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.


The lovely quote is from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream:
Puck and Fairy, Lines 1-17
Act 2,
Scene 1

  1. The photos of your wanderings are so amazing, Hanna. I feel I am wandering with you. I love the quote from Midsummer Might’s Dream, too. Another one for my quote file. Thank you.

    • Thank you for your lovely words, Elisabeth.
      It’s so wonderful that it’s the bright time we’re in, that summer is here.
      Nature is more beautiful than ever and of course, there are the words of Shakespeare.
      All the best,

    • Yes, I found them in a military training area 😀
      Soon, it’s the wild jasmine shrubs that replace the hawthorn. Wonderful season it is!!
      I will look into your post, Margaret.

  2. Very beautiful flower petals and good thing you weren’t near shooting drills. A nice flower arrangement is not worth the danger! 🤣

    • Believe me on this one, Ab, I once had to cross a golf course. Apparently it was a compromise the golf club had made to be allowed to be in a nature reserve: They recommended to keep your head low and the pace up 🤞
      I couldn’t breathe until I was at the finish line 🤣

  3. Dear Hanna,
    thank you very much. Pictures and text are well combined 👍
    Thanks for sharing

    • Klaus, I’m moving into your core competences: Fairies 😊
      Thank you for your lovely words.
      All the best,
