The same procedure as every year -

My Woodland Garden
Julkaistu kuukausi sitten

As every year, I eagerly snap photos of all signs of spring, so faint and shy at first and then ever more confident... The spring, however, hasn't been "as every year" but "of a lifetime". The warm weather arrived suddenly and with it a burst of growth and a spring flower explosion. Imagine the…

Hello all! Warmer weather is expected also here for the next few days, but at the moment it's cold (+4 C), it's dark and it's raining. I happily look back at sunny moments in Italy with these photos taken in the last days of April. Sunshine, temperature around +25 C, a boat neck sailor's shirt,

And hello again! In this post, you can see what was blooming about one week ago in our garden and the neighbourhood in Northern Italy. The protagonists were the wisterias: Ta-daa! Mikä olisi ihanampaa kuin liila-violetti sinisade kukassa? Tietenkin vaaleanpunainen sinisade. :) Valkoinenkin on…

Compact camera shots: Travelling

My Woodland Garden
Julkaistu 2 kuukautta sitten

Hello all! I have been away from the blog-world because of a brief trip to Italy. To travel light, I took only my point-and-shoot camera with me. Italy was green, lush and warm and, despite the busy schedule, I managed to take about 250 photos... Don't worry, I'm not going to post them all!

Turdus merula Hello all! Above is my best (ever) photo of a (Eurasian) blackbird. In this post, there are several photos that are best-ever, first-ever or first-this-year. Some photos aren't very good, like the one of the (European) Robin below, but since it's a bird I never saw when I was a…

Good morning! Aurinkoista huomenta! Recently, we have been able to enjoy sunny winter days... and low temperatures, -26 C this morning. The snow is dry and soft, I wonder if this could be called "champagne powder". :) A bunny? No, a hyperactive squirrel... :) Everyone's

From autumn to winter. We had the cloudiest autumn in living memory, but I have chosen mainly sunny photos. Just because. :) Good time with family and friends, nature's beauty, Christmas preparations... Syksyn hehkusta talven harmauteen. :) No added saturation, just some great evening light:

Summer 2017. You already know that the lupins are the protagonists of my summer, together with roses, wild flowers (on the roadsides too), berries and vegetables, sunshine (when it's not cloudy and/or raining), August nights in the moonlight, birch leaves rustling in the breeze and gentle ripples…

Parus major In the headlines two days ago: "The sun came back to Savonia". Yes, after weeks and weeks of cloudy weather, also our region enjoyed some hours of sunshine, so much needed. Now it's again cloudy (and snowing thinly), but we had our share of happiness. :D Kevät on kyllä vielä kaukana…
