As I mentioned, in my previous post, I would together with a friend, go to visit the František Kupka exhibition on Tuesday. The exhibition contained a total of 150 works + the 52 minute long documentary/biography film. We liked both the film and the exhibition very much. We stayed there for about 2,5 hour and ended the visit with a cup of coffee and a sweet bun. Thank you my friend for a nice day.
Just a few snapshots.
What is better a way than to end the visit with a cup of coffee and a sweet bun.
Because my husband needed to go to Helsinki to take care of some errands I said, I will come too (we went by car). I’d like to just stroll around a bit. It’s such a nice day. Sunshine. Not too cold. Only -3 C. No wind. When I walked by the central station I noticed the lamp holders. They have beautiful flower garlands on their heads. Neither of us couldn’t figure out why. So, I googled on the net. I found it. It’s the 100 years anniversary of the station. It was opened on March 5th 1919.
Also tomorrow he is attending a meeting in Helsinki and I will go with him. While his in the meeting I am going, with a friend, to visit the Ateneum Art Museum where is held František Kupka art exhibition.
With these two last of five in bloom I wish you all a nice International Women’s Day(we’ll see when and if the last stem with buds will bloom)
Happy sunny Shrove Sunday ! Such a nice weather today for outdoor activities. I made shrove buns in the morning. We usually have the same discussion every year whether to have the shrove buns on Shrove Sunday or Shrove Tuesday. When I was a kid we used to have them only on Tuesday. But, at least this time we will have them both days as I made plenty.
On Wednesday 27th we both went visiting an optician situated at the Myyrmäki mall. I had my eyes checked first. So while my husband’s eyes were checked I went for a walk. I decided to go to the railway station which is right outside the mall. It is a long time since I was there last. I think I have not seen the paintings before. Or, I may have, as my husband suggested, forgot ! Either way, I’m glad I walked there and got to see them now and shoot some nice photos. The paintings are huge, colorful and impressive.
I googled and found out many were painted in 2015 when the railway station was renovated as part of the Ring Rail Line opened in the summer 2015 connecting Helsinki Railway to Helsinki Airport.
Some of my Wednesday photos were no good so I went back on Thursday to take some more photos.
This one is a short walk from the station right in front of an underpass.
Poor Amaryllis ! The stem broke. It’s now in a glass jug. I hope it still will have strength to bloom for some more time.
Wow ! I’m amazed. The Amaryllis we got for Christmas is in bloom, again. I have never had one blooming more than at the time of Christmas. And . . . there is one more stem coming up. I am already able to see there will be more flowers. It takes a long time so, maybe at Easter. The stem at Christmas was short. This time it’s very tall and the flowers so heavy that if I don’t put some weight (stones) in the basket it will fall over.
