In general, my aim is to post photos that depict our landscapes and plants as they are at present, during the current season, but there are moments in winter when the craving for green takes over. The past week was cloudy and grey, the temperature 2 °C (ca. 36 °F); some fresh snow has now fallen overnight. There are two sunlit photos at the bottom of this post, but they were taken last week...
Browsing through my pictures, I noticed this one (already posted in the past). I like it. Our landscapes are so flat that I find even tiny little hills and slopes very attractive. :)
"Much of the geography of Finland is explained by the Ice Age. The glaciers were thicker and lasted longer in Fennoscandia compared with the rest of Europe. Their eroding effects have left the Finnish landscape mostly flat with few hills and fewer mountains. Its highest point, the Halti at 1,324 metres (4,344 ft), is found in the extreme north of Lapland at the border between Finland and Norway." (Wikipedia)
I loved my walks on Harju, especially in spring:
Later its foliage changed to brilliant lime green. ♥!
The two photos below are perhaps less interesting, but there are three things I love: trees, green grass, and gentle slopes.
Scots pines and silver birches, two typical species.
