It's Friday and I have five photos from the past week to share with you. Do visit Amy at Love Made My Home for other Five on Friday posts!
This is a white wagtail (Motacilla alba). According to an old and perhaps outdated Finnish proverb (you can read it in this post), when the wagtails have arrived, summer is just around the corner. Many species seem to be migrating earlier than before, perhaps because of the climatic changes.
Summer is still far away. There isn't much green yet...
... but if you look from the right angle, the lawn starts to look green in the evening sun.
Some of the lupins have their young leaves completely purple-coloured, some are green with purple edges.
And now... garden-stakes-on-buckets drum roll, please... This is my first spring flower, a Crocus 'Vanguard'! It was supposed to have a brighter, more reddish, two-toned flower... oh, ok, it's very pretty anyway!
Have a lovely weekend!
