Happy May!


With these cheerful photos, I wish you a beautiful new month... and a happy First of May. It might be snowing, but on that day we in Finland celebrate spring. :)

Huhtikuun kuukausikollaasini on postauksen lopussa. Iloista vappua!



These photos were taken in Italy.





















Huhtikuun kollaasissa näkyy jo hieman kevään merkkejä. Kuukauden suosituimman postauksen
sankari oli veikeä orava, joka käy keikuttamassa lintulaudalta siemenet ja pähkinät maahan. Joistakin kuvista tuli aika hauskoja, kun oravaa tuntui kamera (?) kiinnostavan suuresti.

Pieni Lintu -blogista löytyy lisää kuukausikollaaseja.

Ihanaa toukokuuta!

  1. Hi Sara, I loved seeing your beautiful photos of spring flowers. I love the color of azaleas. Rhododendrons are the state flower of Washington (the state I'm from) and when they are in bloom, it's a lovely sight. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. My best to you, Pat xx

  16. Wishing you a warm May Sara. Your photos are gorgeous and I'm so envious of your wisteria. We had some growing well for a few years and then it died sadly. I don't know why.
    Have a brilliant weekend and looking forward to your May captures:)

  33. Disappointing to still have snow but at least colourful reminders of what is to come. I see the box of chocolates again in your collage - another reminder of something nice.
    Happy May Sara.

    1. Thank you, KL! :)
      The pink flower belongs to a horse chestnut, but I'm not certain about the species/variety.
      Wishing you a lovely new month!
