Friday greens

I know it's February. It means that we are supposed to have a lot of snow. Yet, there are moments when my "deficiency of chlorophyll" feels almost too much to bear...

Then I noticed that Gunilla participates in a lovely link party called Friday Greens. Exactly what I needed!

Of course I would like to participate using a recent photo, but I find for example this one more inspiring...




It is actually one of my favourites. It was taken in May, on a cloudy afternoon (in Central Finland). The bluish tinge in the background is just the gravel path, but I think it adds some mysterious atmosphere to the shot. :)

  5. A beautiful photo - I love the freshness of the colour, and it's a wonderful reminder that Spring is on the way. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog earlier - and yes, the table cover was a Marimekko paper napkin!

  13. I know what you mean about "deficiency of chlorophyll"....we are getting our every three day snow storm today but it is warmer at about 20 to 25....we seem to get between 6-12 inches each storm these days...thanks for the green!

  17. Oi onko tuo lamoherukka? Katselin tänään sen ihanan pulleita silmuja<3

    1. Kyllä se tosiaankin taitaa taikinamarja olla! Molemmat tulevat lehteen hyvin aikaisin ja kukkivat samanlaisilla vaaleilla kukilla. Lehtensäkin ovat kovin samanlaiset, mutta kasvutapa erilainen. Taikinamarja on korkeampi pensas (toki leikkaamalla siitä saa vaikka kuinka matalan) ja lamoherukka kasvaa luonnostaan matalana "lamoavana". Tuon oksisto tosiaan näyttäisi enemmän pensasmaiselta, mutta vaikea lopulta olla ihan varma.

  18. Such a wonderful photo, Sara! Yes, I love the bluish background, but the detail of the green leaves is stunning.
    So glad you could join this Friday Greens meme, and hope you join again this week!

  20. Ihana haaste!! Juuri tämä on sitä mitä ihminen - varsinkin puutarhastelija- tarvitsee kevättalvella! Katsotaan jos ehtisin tähänkin ottamaan osaa - mistä aina löydätkin näitä ihania ja inspiroivia haasteita!
