Memories from 2017



TO BEGIN WITH A WARNING: THIS IS A LONG POST!

Weatherwise December offered it all: 
heavy snow falls & beautiful Winter Wonderland, to be followed with melting snow & darkness.
Finland celebrated its 100th Day of Independence and many in my family their birthdays.




November brought the first snow and Christmas decorations into the house.
The pupils of the nearby elementary school created this impressive piece of art.




In October the scenery turned into frosty reds and yellows, 
and the autumn leaves started to fall.
I attended The Helsinki Book Fair for four days and enjoyed very much!




In September  I went to see my son's Bernese Mountain Dog Coconut's puppies! 
They were really cute, and my grandson handsome.




At he end of September I visited Barcelona. Five days there were gorgeous!




August brought cherries and strong colors into the garden.
The most spectacular blooms were dark & red Alcea rosea!




As a whole the summer 2017 was chilly and rainy. Everything bloomed later than normally.
But they bloomed anyhow - July was filled with blooms & delicious strawberries!




My granddaughter Helmi got her white student cap. The party at the beginning of
June was lovely and I very proud. Roses started to bloom.




In May the perennials started to grow; tulips were in bloom...
And I succeeded for once to take a photo of the squirrels that visit my garden.




In April we celebrated Easter and Pineapple paid a few days' visit.




In March some early signs of spring could be seen, the days grew longer 
and we had also sunny days.




If I remember correctly, February was a pretty dull month.
But we had these delicious & traditional Runeberg pastries!




January & New Year started cold and snowy.
There were frost flowers at my kitchen window.



What might the year 2018 bring? Hopefully health & nice memories!



Wishing you all Happy New Year!

Floral Bliss #52


I hope you have had a lovely & happy Christmas time, and still do!
I had too much chocolate and too less walking that's for sure.
It was too slippery, was my excuse. More excersise is needed in January!



But I do have a problem - we got a lot of Christmas chocolates!
My husband won't eat, so I have to, probably...
Millions of calories... How many added kilos I wonder!
