Hello, Monika! - Vihdoin sadetta



Rhododendron 'Haaga'


Hello all! Especially, I want to say "hello" and "welcome" to Monika and other new followers. If you have a blog, I'd love to visit it. I always follow back your blogs about gardening/nature/books/crafts etc. but sometimes it's not easy to find them! So please remember, if you have a blog and you hope me (and other readers) to visit it, leave a comment or write me an email. ♥

Happy summer (or winter) days to you! :)






Ylläoleva koskee tietysti myös suomenkielisiä lukijoita. :) Yritän aina tulla vierailulle ja seuraajaksi lukijoitteni blogiin. Jos en tule, se johtuu siitä, että en ole löytänyt sitä. Useinhan seuraajalistan profiilissa lukijan oma mahdollinen blogi ei näy eikä Googleplussakaan aina auta...

Toivottavasti tekin olette jo saaneet sadetta tai ainakin saatte pian! Täällä on satanut eilen ja tänään, tosin vain kuuroja. Säätiedotus piti hyvin paikkansa: Eilen tuuli tosiaan kovaa.

Kevät tuli myöhässä, mutta lämpimät säät jouduttivat kasvua niin, että lupiinitkin alkavat jo kukkia! Ihania kesäpäiviä kaikille! ♥

Humidity's been rising, barometer's been gettin' low...



Hallelujah, it's finally raining!

  1. Some beautiful photographs Sara. I love the gorgeous glowing sky.
    It's been unusually dry here for the time of year and the gardens could do with some rain. X

  4. Ihanaa kesätunnelmaa kuvissasi. Ja teillä on satanut, vau! Täällä ei ole sateista toivoakaan, vaikka niitä kovasti kaivataan. Mukavaa viikon jatkoa!

  6. Katselen kaihoisasti noita rodon ja lupiinien päällä olevia raikkaita sadepisaroita. Täällä vielä taistellaan kuivuutta vastaan. Aurinko taas paistelee jo aamusta. ☀️

    Sinulta saamistani syksyllä istutetuista lupiinien siemenistä on kehittynyt pieniä lehtiä. Saa nähdä milloin kukkivat. SInulla on kauniita lupiineja tulossa. Olen ihan samaa mieltä kuin edellinen kommentoija: Kuvat ovat kuin ammattilaisen ottamia 🙂

    Onpas puun rungossa kivat rappuset oraville 🐿 🐾

  22. Voi, miten upeita kuvia. On kiva nähdä asiat läheltä, miten paljon maailma muuttuukaan silloin. Arjen kiireissä vaan hurahtelee ohi, mutta oikeasti - kannattaa pysähtyä. Ja kuvaaminen on ihan parasta keinoa tallentaa hienot muistot myöhempiinkin hetkiin. Vau!

  24. Hi Sara, it's been lovely to see your summer in Finland and gorgeous photos. You can say happy summer and happy winter to me as I am off to the UK and Australia both in the next few weeks, just to confuse my bio rhythms!
    Have a wonderful week
