Multerland is an online collection of educational information about nature, climate change, care for nature, natural health, ecology, and wholism, within the reality of a geographic country: Norway. The photo up here is a detail of Hovsfjorden, a nature reserve and part of the geographic reality of Multerland.

The name Multerland is derived from the words Multer and land. Multer are the Norwegian Cloudberries. They grow high in the mountains, close to the village where I live, on little plants with beautiful leafs. In the photo-slideshow you can watch the berries, from the flower to the berry, also watching the surroundings, the environment, in which these berries grow. The berries can be picked at the beginning of September. The weather is often rainy, clouded, chilly, all signs of autumn.

Multer are for me a symbol of strength and health. Of being vulnerable, looking like raspberries but not so soft, they are really strong and beautifully colored yellow, orange, and red. They taste a bit strange: not sweet, not sour, not bitter, it is a unique incomparable taste and one has to get used to it, to be able to give it the value it deserves. It is extremely healthy. There to nourish humans and animals and being capable at the same time to survive the very severe winters high up in the mountains, to survive in difficult circumstances.

Multerland started in 2010, after moving from Netherlands to Norway. I am 67, a pensioner, very active via the several webpages and blogs, with photographing and filming, editing, biking, hiking, garderning, and all what is further on my own personal agenda.
