Random Photo

Oslo, Norway, July 2014. 

This old home from a bygone era was on the grounds of our hotel.  There were many of them in other areas we visited, some with the most beautiful carvings on doorways and windows. I loved seeing the grass on the roofs, and sometimes there were wildflowers.

    Just stopping by to say, thanks for your comment on the low carb diabetic and yes, if you can find the colour photo I would love to see it please, this is such an unusual building, it must have been amazing to see.

  15. I love looking to old historical buildings, seeing the history and getting some ideas to use today. I have thought about having grass or a roof top garden on part of my house if I could do it.

  16. That is a dramatic picture that looks so good in black and white. I like the grass on the roof. Did you visit that park in Oslo that has so many old houses? Some had grass on the roof. I took many pictures there but still have not done a post.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
