The Sea

I have always loved the sea.
The salty smell.
The waves.
The reflection of sun and moon on it.
The whitecaps.
The sound.

IRRC - and weekend in Imatra

Hubby and I spent a weekend in Imatra.
Just two of us
- and tens of thousand of other people,
who had came to Imatra to follow International Road Racing Competition.
It is different for me now.
To follow motorbike races.
Seven years I was hanging in pit stops, following races
- and scared.
now I am able to just be there like an average spectator.

No rain

It have been weeks from last rain.
Almost six.
Nature is suffering.
My plants are suffering.

But: there isn't much damages made by Arianta arbustorum.

Conservation area Lemmenlaakso

On Thursday night we finally managed to get ourselves to Lemmenlaakso.
It lies quite close to us,
and we have talked often,
that we should go there.
Until now it has only been talk.

Awesome days

Weather has been really warm lately,
and it has caused accelerated growth in my garden.
Flip side of it is drought.
I am not complaining
- after last summer this is so much lovelier.

Filled with spring

Spring has sprung fast.
Really fast.
Whole last week we have had heat,
and nature, as well as my garden, too,
has started blooming.

Ordinary landscape

I don't need to walk long,
to see very typical landscape.
Around here we have a lot of fields
 - and thickets.
I don't know how else narrate those mixed forests around here. 
Tangle, perhaps?
But when I slosh around,
I try to find something else.

Evening by Rapids of Nukari

There is something intriguing with water.
When it stays still,
it calms you down.
And when it cascases with it's all force,
it also scares - and enchants.
By the rapids in spring it is easy to believe in the spirit of water.
And how it lures you to join in.
I, however, stayed on banks.

Not good

This post will be different.
No nice photos nor any other kind of photos either.
This post will enclude my unhappy thoughts, as well there might be even brutal expression. This might be also political, if it would be read like it is - it is left to reader to decide.
And it is also possible to not go on reading, if you just choose so.

One picture per month

I wanted to remember something else from last year than worries -
I knew there were also good moments:
some were very small,
some were bigger.
Here are one per month.
 Hietaniemi in January, Cyclo cross race.

Cold of course, it was January.
