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, …

Note

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:

Act 2,
Scene 1

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.
