Before The Rain Sets In …

We’ve had plenty of sun, for a long time. Now comes the rain and nature needs it. The weather forecast predicts heavy rainfall next week. The magnolias will probably not be the same after a week’s rain.
The pictures are from today in the old Arboretum in Charlottenlund.

The arboretum was established back in 1799 to support the teaching of forest botany at the University of Copenhagen.
The oldest trees are about 300 years old.

While the Sun was Setting…

The meadow smells of sunshine. A large bird migration passes the moon. The horses are grazing. The fruit trees are blooming and the smell of Mirabelle flowers are mingling with sunshine. These are moods that merge and define spring.

Spring won’t let me stay in this house any longer! I must get out and breathe the air deeply again.
~ Gustav Mahler
