Welcome!

My name is Ingrid Galadriel and this is a blog about my adventures in history, crafting, farm life and nature. I am passionate about preservation, cultural history and the Viking age. When I'm not doing farm life activities I'm a project manager in Hands on History.

 I hope you have a nice stay!

The kittens paw

The kittens paw

The first sprouts have come - the Salix Caprea.

In my Norwegian dialect they are called "Kattlabba" meaning "the kittens paw".

Minutes after finding the first sprouts of this spring, 

I found two dead kittens in the barn. 

A different kind of kittens paw.

The circle of life and death revealed itself to me. 

I'm honored, humbled and a bit sad.
