The summer in Denmark has been bad. Too much rain. In despite of that fact, some corns have been harvested. Here is a “cornmountain” at Roskilde Andel (you see the letters to the left), now called Danish Agro (to be sure danes understand it nowadays).
Earlier this year Alice from the Danish Kidney Association gave me an envelope with seeds. The flower this day was from that envelope. I like it and I will harvest some seeds for next year, but I don’t know the name of the flower.
Roskilde Daily Photo has once more been outside Roskilde. At a few days vacation in Flensburg, Glücksburg was visited monday. We were inside the castle and enjoyed what we saw. Here is the link to Schloss Glücksburg. See this overview of importance in Europe.
The first photo of the castle was shot just before the visit. The second just after.
Today a new parliament is elected in Denmark – a new government seems to be the result, but votes can still be given an hour more. For some the clouds is the result, for others sunshine – just as seen on my way to Roskilde earlier this day.
At thursday tere is election to the parliament. Ahead of that politicians promote themselves by hanging posters in the lampposts at the streets – here at Stændertorvet with the cathedral in the background.
The Para-cycling Road World Championship takes place the next 4 days. The opening cermony took place earlier today.
Here are some of the participants.
A lot of preparation is necessary.
The ceremony was conducted by Master Fatman, and the Mayor of Roskilde, Joy Mogensen, spoke.
The man in yellow is from Ghana.
Jesper Skibby, a famous danish racing cyclist, told he knew the hard work all participants had done to be able to be here this day.
On my way back home I saw this young cyclist at Roskilde station wating for the train.
Yesterday ended Eurorando 2011 in the eastern part of Denmark with 7 walks all ending at the Large Spring at Byparken in Roskilde. The walks was between 4 and 26 km. I participated in one of them, 13 km at Skjoldungestien from Lejre to Roskilde. That was a very fine walk.
Water is the theme for this Eurorando, symbolising life and movement. Water from many part of Europe will be collected and brought to Andalusia, to be united at the end of Eurorando 2011 later this year.
At the walk Lavringe Stream was crossed – there was much water in it. As seen at the last photo.
At the first photo you see Lis Nielsen, President of the European Ramblers Association, and Torben Christensen, Chairman of the Danish Ramblers Association, filling a bottle with water from the Large Spring.
