Happy April!














The prompt for this week's MakroTex Challenge is HAPPY. Happy... "feeling, showing, or causing pleasure or satisfaction"... Because I don't post photos of people and we don't have furry friends in the family, I have tried to photograph things that give pleasure and joy: flowers, bright colours, green plants (few at the moment where I live) and sunshine, sunsets with coloured clouds...

Sharing also with SEASONS.

Happy April!





MakroTex-haasteen teemana on tällä viikolla ILOINEN.  Koska en julkaise kuvia (yksityisistä) ihmisistä eikä perheessä ole lemmikkieläimiä, kuvasin haasteeseen iloa tuottavia asioita, kukkia, värejä, auringonpaistetta...

Olen iloinen, koska alppiruusutkin taitavat olla vielä elossa talven lumettomien pakkaskausien jälkeenkin:






Aurinkoa ja vihreyttä on talvella ollut niin vähän, että jokainen auringonpilkahdus ilahduttaa. :)






Kevät tuo tullessaan kauniit auringonlaskut.










Iloista, aurinkoista ja keväistä huhtikuuta!

  20. I'm suprised you don't have any furry critters in your household, maybe some furry spiders?

  23. You have the perfect sunny spot for these gorgeous yellow roses Sara. I just saw that Proven Winners (don't know if their plants make it to Finland) have come out with a disease resistant yellow rose that is also fragrant. Usually to get all the other attributes fragrance is bred out of selections so I'd like to see this new rose.

  28. Teillä on kaunis luonto. Ruusu on ihana, minä haaveilen kesäistutuksiin tuollaisista ruusuista, hieman kalliiksi vaan tulisi. Mukavaa viikkoa ja lumensulatussäteitä lähettelen yhä. Joko ne sulavat?
