Olet tärkeä - Reposted: Green and white

Sää on ollut aurinkoinen ja melko lämmin, ja lumet ovat alkaneet sulaa. Vihdoinkin! :) Peippoja ja mustarastaita vierailee pihan ruokintapaikalla ja autoillessa on bongattu töyhtöhyyppä. Maisema on kuitenkin vielä hyvin valkoinen ja vihreyttä odotellessa päätin postata uudelleen nämä keväiset Italia-kuvat kahden vuoden takaa.

 Kiitos taas ihanista kommenteistanne aikaisempiin postauksiini! Jätin kommentointimahdollisuuden auki tähän postaukseen, mutta valitettavasti en ehdi aivan pian vastavierailulle. Aurinkoista viikonloppua!






The weather has been sunny and warm in the last days, but we still have much snow. That's why I wanted to post again these photos taken two years ago in Italy. April... fields and trees greening up in the Bassa Padana (Lower Po Valley). Such a blissful time!


























In April 2016, I shared these photos and collages at
"Mosaic Monday" and "Seasons" (unfortunately the links don't work anymore).


















Wishing you a lucky weekend! :)






Thank you all for your lovely comments!
Lately I have much less time for fun (=blogging) than before,
but I'll try to visit you as soon as I can.

    1. Thank you, Cathy! There are different species of poplars in several photos. The old, beautiful one should be a Populus nigra.
      Wishing you a happy new week!

  13. Living in the tropics, it is sheer bliss to view your scenes of 'green'. Then add in spring blossom and my day is off to a delightful start, especially as I've had to watch heavy storm clouds decide to drop their precious cargo elsewhere.

  14. All the green fields and trees...it definitely is a colour to lift the spirits. We noticed how inspiring the gradual addition of more green in the landscape on our drive to Florida was, sure beat a bland white pallet.

  15. Italy has beautiful valleys and such a lovely spring--I enjoyed all your photos, Sara!

  16. Minäkin haluan Italiaan, ihan just nyt! Kaunista, rehevää ja vihreää! Mikä olisikaan kauniimpi aamu, kuin juoda kahvia noiden puiden alla ja nauttia vain olostaan. Ilma tuoksuu varmaan raikkaalle!

  17. HI,Sara,
    What romantic images you have shared! Very pure and sweet!
    Happy spring!

  18. You have the gift of being able to capture the beauty that nature provides ... and then making them even more beautiful with your presentation. The collages are wonderful and I love all of the pictures, especially the one with the grass ... it just seems to say all there is to say about our wonderful green world. Really lovely, Sara ...

  20. Beautiful photos, Sara. Are you in Italy now? The delicate green leaves of spring are always a welcome sight.
    Yes, I'm busier now, too, with less time for blogging, but I get around eventually.

  21. That tree is gorgeous! And all the blooms - so beautiful:)
    On the chance I'm wrong, but may be you forgot to link (or you were going to do it Wednesday) just a gentle reminder to add one of your beautiful images to SEASONS this week. Would be great if you can make it, still time on Wed. Till 7pm US Pacific time:) Hope to see you there and have a happy week!

  22. Ihanat kuvat! So many beautiful shades of green. I am married to a Dutch man, but I am Finnish. My grandparents came to the U.S. from Finland. I'm glad to see your photos!

  23. Sara I love those greens! What is that flower in the last photo? It is amazing -- I don't think I've ever seen a green flower!!!

    1. Thank you, Sallie!
      The label says it's a Helleborus orientalis... and it also says the flower should be purplish. :)

  26. Voi mitä puita, melkein pökerryin kun olivat niin ihania! Ystävystyittekö tuon mustan kisun kanssa, joka niin tarkkaavaisesti katselee jouluruusujen takaa? Olitko töissä Italiassa, ihanalta kuulostaa!

  35. Kaunista seutua, kohta koittavat taas vihreät ajat. Vihreä virkistää ja rauhoittaa mieltä, mielinauhan väriksikin valittu.

    Sinulla on kiva vihreä sydän. ♥ Omissa varastoissani pientä sydäntä vain mustana vaihtoehtona. ♥♥♥

  38. Hello Sara,

    Beautiful photos from Italy! I'll rather look at them than outside. Still we also have a lot of snow left here. This winter never ends...

    Happy Weekend!

  45. Italy looks so wonderful perhaps we should all move there! I have just returned from a week on the west coast of Canada where it rained most of the time.

  46. Will you find me way down here at the bottom of the list? My blogging has been spotty at best these last months. I have missed so many good posts. Your spring looks so beautiful and green. The landscape here is trying to green up, but Spring is late. And then it will be blistering hot all of a sudden and we will wish for cooler days. Enjoy your week.

  48. Voi miten ihastuttavia kuvia...kevät...Ihanaa kuulla, että lumenne ovat sulamaan päin. Olen netissä nähnyt hurjia lumikuvia teiltäpäin, on sitä piisannut tänä talvena. Kevät on viimein täällä! Onnellista kevättä sinulle!
