My first resting day was not even 24 hours into my pilgrimage – but why not have a rest and relax with nice people at any time? Maia and Thorbjørn and their three sweet daughters are living twenty kilometers north of Copenhagen. I met them a couple of years ago, when I offered help on the preparation of their outdoor wedding party, to which I was then invited – but that’s a story for itself. 😉
The family lives in a nice and calm place in nature, with a beautiful garden, lots of flowers, chicken, fledglings and in general a good atmosphere for children to explore the world.
My main program there was relaxing, playing with the kids, talking with the adults and helping in the house hold. Thorbjørn is staying at home and caring for the children at the moment. I love Denmark for such liberty and equality.
Posting pictures of children I shall not do. But I shall post pictures of flowers, which I happen to fancy taking.
Intermediate question to the readers: Who noticed that the last eight flowers were all from the purple-blue spectrum? I am not sure if Maia and Thor like this flower color most, neither did I purposefully only photographed these. It just happened. To relax your eyes, now come differently colored plants and … chicken!
Maia and Thorbjørn have half a dozen hens in their garden and currently also seven fledglings. Their oldest daughter is surprisingly fast in catching fledglings and the cuddling them, setting them on the chicken house to fly down again or giving me a hand full of them. In two days we probably spend two hours in the hennery. 🙂
(No, seriously, the hens did not seem to mind a lot. This particular hen here just has a beak that is of the very most unimpressed shape.)
That’s it for today. No pilgrimage pictures, no pilgrimage stories, only flowers and chicken. I still quite enjoyed both taking and posting these pictures. If you have some more precise plant knowledge or if you just enjoyed the pictures as well, feel free to leave a comment.
