Spring weeks for me are pretty much going with skitouring guiding and other work. Last week I worked for Romsdalsvinter in Romsdalen. Very hectic days (no time for taking photos!) with good people and slushy spring snow. Days are now warm and the snow is melting. There is still much of it up in the mountains but down in the valleys the summer is definitely knocking on the door.

Some time ago I found this dead Norwegian lemming (Lemmus lemmus) in the forest. The rumours say it is going to be a “lemming year”, so I guess it won’t be the last one. It is very common to find them in the mountains and on the glaciers.

An other random thing I find interesting is my Christmas Stars still alive! These ones here have had a long winter, at least 5 months. I’ve been away from them many weeks but they survive. Good sort! Not the ideal easter flower but I like them.

    cute lemmus lemmus! Put some easter decoration to the flowers so you’ll get some very pretty easter stars.

    Lemmings might be cute, yes, and funny, they are like hamsters, but there is X thousands of them in the mountains now! They are way too many, there is not room for all of them so thousands dies. That’s nature.
