What a heavenly setting for a farm.
Perhaps they need a milkmaid ...?

What a beautyful meadow!and typical "northern " colors of the barn and the farm.That's really how we imagine Norway in summer..

Great looking farm. I'm always drawn to rural landscapes (must somehow be programmed in my genes).

God ferie, og hjemreise!
Så pent ut nedi den dalen der.

I took one look at this picture and thought, oh my, what a gorgeous counted cross stitch picture this would make! Not for me to do -way beyond my meager capabilities -but someone who is really adept at that craft could so do it just perfectly!

It looks like heaven to me! What a beautiful spot to have a farm. I wonder if we in Canada have the same meadow wildflowers.

Awesome photo!!

Wow, what a beautiful scenery. Perfect.

Reader Wil said...

Very wonderful place! I'd rather live here than in a castle!!

Ida said...

For meg er dette virkelig sommeridyll!

Det kan ha sammenheng med mine barndomsferier sammen med bestemor på en gård i Aurland.
Det var fine dager det.
Kupert, variert og spennende landskap.

Flott bilde!
Fine farger og skarphet.

Arija said...
