Standing at the station waiting for the train to Roskilde, a man in a car told us the train wouldn't come because of a bombthreat in Roskilde. Instead we took a local walk.
The snow is now melting and something has happend under the snow - the snowdrops has grown as seen today. Nice to see.
After a few days off blogging, I am back. If you remember the last photo, it was The Large Spring delivering 15.000 l water pr. hour. Where is all that water running away? Well, of course it can run to Roskilde Fjord, and I think it is so, but not directly. The water is comming up through a hole in a mill-stone (given as a gift to Roskilde at its 1000 years "birthday"). You see the stone at the photo. After that the water runs to a little lake in Byparken (City Park), which won't freeze because of the running water. You see many birds in the water at the photo below.
In the last two days a new event, a new winterfestival called Ånd & Viden, Spirit & Knowledge, has taken place in Rsokilde. I was there before it was dark, but something was diffent. The intention was to warm Roskilde by coals. Here you see a man lightening the coals at Hestetorvet. The containers was placed every 50 meters.
A kindergarden are using old tires to a very purpose. Roads has been build, signposts has been placed, and the kids has an excellent opportunity to learn good manners in the traffic. It dosn't seem too easy for many cardrivers and others...
At wintertime the reconstructed vikingships are placed mainly on a long row in front of the Viking Ships Museum. This is a farmboat - and you find information at the next photo.

The Theme Day is wood. I have choosen two photos from the archives.
Here is wood "under attack" in the nature.
This is Prins Carls plankeværk (Prince Carls hoarding). This construction is made of oak, it is 300 years old, and is still going strong and doing what it is meant to do - keeping the animals outside a park. The hole or perforation is a so called shooting-hole. Prince Carl was sitting behind and could put his gun through the hole and...bang. A few more photos of the hoarding, which is from Vemmetofte, can be seen here.
I am living between Roskilde and Køge, at the southern border of Roskilde municipality. Some days I go to Roskilde, some others to Køge. I have decided to expand this blog also to show photos from Køge.
