Tree The photograph was taken on April 15th. The weather forecast for the next week looks promising: dry and sunny weather, 5 °C in the morning and 15 °C in the afternoon. Commuting by bicycle should be a pleasure. (Posting title is from the poem A Red Tricycle in the Belly of the Pool by Karyna McGlynn.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/
Hi everyone! How’s your life? Busy, happy, sad? My life is good, as busy as I want/need it to be… If I have too many projects and start feeling…uneasy, I try to calm down/choose what is most important… Important is… We’re having a short holiday in Spain
Pyh, mikään break ole. Siis lomaa. Mutta silti spring breaks.. pikkuhiljaa. Lumet sulaa/suli ja arska! Oltiin retkellä takkahuoneessa. Paistettiin makkaraa ja juotiin pillimehua. Kummasti sitä alkaa pikku hiljaa uuteen arkeen tottumaan. Siihen, että käy töissä ja on sitten vasta kotona. Osin siitä on kiittäminen tota aurinkoa tai yleisesti valoisuutta. Ei ole enää niin väsynyt ja masentunut kun menee pimeässä töihin ja palaa pimeässä. Nyt jaksaa mennä töidenkin jälkeen...
So nice to camera walk in the neighbourhood today after spending the last few days within the four walls getting rid of a winter flu. Spring truly was in the air today in Helsinki. By chance just before noon I […]
Hauskaa lauantaita, tervetuloa Allsorts haaste en pariin! Aiheena kevään kukat tai kevätsateet! Kevään kukkana helmihyasintti ja tein kolme erilaista korttia, simppelin, peruskortin ja runsaasti koristellun. Kerro mielipiteesi, mikä sinusta on kaunein? Hi; Happy Saturday, it's time for a new Allsorts Challenge ! Spring Flowers and/or Spring Showers is the theme of lovely DT Ellie this week. My favourite spring flower is grape hyasinth, I have them a lot in my cottage garden. I made...
Yhtäkkiä aurinko lämmittää yhä enemmän ja enemmän. Mieli fiilistelee jo kesää ja vaatekaappiin eksyy kevyempiä vaatteita. Aurinkorasvakin löytyy kylmempien kuukausien jälkeen peilikaapista, itse tykkään SunBumin rasvoista, varsinkin tämä 30spf tuoksuu ihanalle banaanille. Itse olen todella tarkka aurinkorasvasta ja olen tietoisesti myös vältellyt aurinkoa nyt muutaman kuukauden että iho saisi edes hetken rauhaa ainaiselta porotukselta. Täällä […]
Waking up this morning I was surprised to see that the flag was hoisted outside my window and I began to wonder what the reason for the flagging was.To my awe I found out it was not printed in neither one of my calendars, and I do have two printed Finnish calendars, so turning to the news made me wiser. Today is an optional flagging day, that means it is only recommended to flag and not

Green The photograph was taken on May 10th. We got some rain during the night and in the morning, clearing the air of dust and making the landscape green. But it was little and didn't really help with the drought. (Posting title is from the poem Blue by Katrina Roberts.) Posted by Juha Haataja at http://lightscrape.blogspot.com/

Forest The photograph was taken in Sipoonkorpi National Park on May 11th. Today I walked for 3 1/2 hours at Kytäjä-Usmi outdoor area in Hyvinkää. It was quiet, I met only three people walking on the paths, and they were near the parking place. (Posting title is from the poem Blue by Carl Phillips.)

Weather has been really warm lately, and it has caused accelerated growth in my garden. Flip side of it is drought. I am not complaining - after last summer this is so much lovelier. Blooming of apple trees is almost over, but lilacs have already started. The smell...it is just heady... Even though apple is loosing greatest blooming, Malus toringo var. sargentii starts. With it's scent it brings me back to childhood summernights. Blooming rowan means there won't be damages made by Argyresthia...

KKvintagehaaste avautui jälleen aiheenaan Pariisin kevät. Inostuin tekemään kolmen kortin sarjan. Siinä esiintyvät aikakautensa muodikkaat pariisittaret. Fleur lähti kävelylle: Hän on jostain syystä harmistunut nuoriin: Ja täältä löytyy oikeaa (pariisilais)asennetta: Osallistua voi koko kuukauden. Hop-hop!
We have had a long "peacefull" period. Nothing dramatic happening Pancho being Pancho and Chili getting more and more adult. Pancho and Chili were dewormed on the weekend Chili probably needed it.. Pancho has never eaten much anything on our forest trips etc. Chili is very different in this. Chili loves to find those really well "cooked" mouse and other ex-animals. If chili gets one of these in his mouth and you try to go and take it away all you hear is this soung "GULP" as he swallows as...
Kun ostin 1986 Oulussa ensimmäisen cd-levyni (Springsteen: Darkness on the Edge of Town), niitä myytiin yleisesti mm. tavarataloissa. Nyt joulukuun puolivälissä kiertelin Helsingin levykauppoja etsien turhaan Springsteenin uutuutta. Lopulta annoin periksi ja tilasin sen Amazonista. Sieltä se sitten näppärästi olikin saapunut joulun Kainuu-reissun aikana. Kyseessä on kahdelle levylle jaettu liveäänitys, noin 2,5 tuntia. Springsteen esiintyi soolona New Yorkin Boroadwayn Walter Kerr...
