Two months ago I posted a photo of the north-western end of Slottsparken, the park surrounding the Royal Castle. See that photo here, and compare it to today's photo, which is taken almost on the same spot. Then I stood facing the suburbs of Majorstua and the shopping street Bogstadveien, today I was facing the centre of the park. Look how green it is! My hayfever must have been kind to me this season, so far I haven't had too many problems with it. Knock on wood.
