Many of you might have seen Nannis post at NannisVerden. She has written beautifully about the day we spent together yesterday here at Hvitsten. She is such a great writer and I feel blessed to count her as one of my best friends.

(The kissing couple is actually my friend Nanni and her Nanniman...*giggle*)
Even when it is raining this garden is wonderful. Nanni is taking pictures and I'm jumping over rocks with my beloved Calous.
After spending the whole day together we went to see an evening performance of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream at the Havlyst garden at Ramme Gaard. (If you want to know more about this garden you can see my previous post, The Secret Garden.)
It was a magical evening!
Accompanied by the sound of fountains, exotic birds chirping, wind ruffling the leaves and with a glass of Dom Perignon in my hand, I was exported to an enchanted forest where fairies played and mortals despaired. The setting couldn't have been more perfect and I laughed at the mischievous acts of Puck and the silliness of the amateur actors playing Pyramus and Thisbe.
It was one of those nights that you know that you'll remember for a long time. As we walked through the garden on our way home it was 11.30 at night and still fairly light. It had stopped raining and the sweet smell of flowers lingered in the air
.... oh, those Norwegian summer nights are marvelous.....
