The chestnut tree
I have realised I haven't posted a photo of a tree for a while. I haven't posted that many photos of trees at all, really, despite being a sucker for them. This tree here is a huge chestnut tree, it's growing in the courtyard of my friend's parent's farm. I think its beautiful, but this tree here is still my favourite!! The building on the photo is called "stabbur," a house on farms used in the old days for storage of food. For more information on storehouses, check out stabbursnatt.no, where ten farms in Rollag, Numedal (about 1 hour drive northwest of Eiker) have come together to offer accomodation options in these storehouses.
