The passed week in photos


Good morning and happy October to all! I added my month collage to this post, because there are other photos taken on the last days of September. Visiting Susanna's blog Pieni Lintu, you can see the collages others have shared.









Participating also in 







We have been able to enjoy beautiful autumn days  -  Unusual-looking lingonberry leaves  -  Bright colours  -  More lichens and mosses  -  Soft colours  -  Dreaming of spring  -  Fewer colours than the envelope promised, but pansies are always so very cute










Happy Mosaic Monday to all!


























A small note to Google Chrome users. As of the September 1st release of Google Chrome, the browser will now automatically pause Flash media by default. They have taken this initiative to reduce power consumption by personal computers and to shore up any potential security exploits that may exist with Flash. It means that instead of seeing the cute fruit clocks in my sidebar you now notice a 'play' button that appears on top of them.

ClockLink encourages users to switch to HTML5 clocks to avoid this issue. I however want to continue using precisely these clocks. If you are a Chrome user, you can do this: 1. Open Preferences  -  2. Under Privacy click the Content Settings button  -  3. Under Plugins change the option to 'Run all plugin content' - but I wouldn't really recommend it. Sorry for any inconvenience!






Have a lovely new week!

  2. The best pansies have the faces of lions or perhaps Chinese dragons. Your macro worlds are fascintating too.

  5. I see that the lichen and the moss attract attention amongst your readers. They caught my attention, too. Like something from outer space of somebody's science project :D

    The birch tree trunks look dreamy.

    Monipuolinen mosaiikki :)

  20. A beautiful collection of photos. I see you are thinking ahead to spring with your bulbs. Pansies are such pretty little flowers - they were my grandmother's favorite. Lichens and fungi are fascinating little plants. Have a good week, Sara.

  24. Hi, Sara! Beautiful autumn photos. After a couple of cold nights nature here looks almost the same. And we already start talking about coming Christmas and New Year. I guess it is easier to survive autumn when you are waiting for very special holidays.
