Heavenly in Warzsaw

Last year in may I was on a girly trip to Warszaw. Lovely city, and we had a great time. The weather was absolutely wonderful as you can see from the pic.

           For some reason this photo reminds me of the song Lily Marleen

Vor der Kaserne, vor dem grossen Tor
stand eine Laterne und stand si noch davor
So woll´n wir uns da vieder seh´n
bei der Laterne wollen wir sthe´n
"Wie einst Lily Marleen"

I like the German version the best, and that is also the original written in 1915. In 1944 the English version was made. Funny how this song became popular at both sides. Here is one verse of the English version. 

Underneath the lantern,
By the barrack gate
Darling I remember
The way you used to wait
T'was there that you whispered tenderly,
That you loved me,
You'd always be,
My Lilli of the Lamplight,
My own Lilli Marlene

Sweet chocolate on a Monday

Sweet Helene is asking us to show something sweet. My choice is this cup of hot chocolate and marsmallows served to me in the south of England a couple of years ago. 

Mmmmm I do love hot chocolate.

Himmelsk i januar /Heavenly in January

It's been a while since I've entered any post on this blog. Shame on me. 
Frankly, the weather here on the westcoast of Norway has been so bad, rain and wind almost every day, not very tempting to go on photo safaries. 
Lame exuse, I know. . 

But the other day, 15th of january I suddenly took a glance out of the window and wow the sky was spectacular. Magic for me who has seen nothing else than grey sky and rain for months. The pic is taken from my balcony on the 8th floor.

Take a look at all the fab skywatch photos at
