There has been a lot of winter sand dust on the roads. For the last few days it really has been hard. Every time a bus or a car passed it made a huge cloud of dust blowing up. Which have caused me to shut my mouth and eyes and keep my breath for as long as possible. Good thing is they are now cleaning the roads. The cleaning helps a lot but to really get rid of the dust a downpour cleans the best.
Last night we were able to see the Northern Lights also here in the south of Finland. It was very nice. Can you believe I didn’t have my camera with me ! There’s been so many fantastic pictures in the news papers from last night’s spectacular light show.
In my opinion it’s officially spring now as I saw the first Anemone hepatica. Of course it was on the other side of a ditch with water. I didn’t want to even try to hop over so the picture is what it is.
Yes, I think that when you see the first flower, winter is over.
Right, I’v even seen more spring flowers by now 🙂
On no, sorry to hear you missed the auroras. A couple of hours rain would be fine or what 🙂
can you believe i MISSED THE AURORAS?!??! ugh, i only realized it close to midnight when i noticed people in Facebook are all talking about the beautiful auroras… and of course the show was over. oh well.
just like you, i also always try to hold my breath as long as possible (= not very long). i don’t know if i want it to rain that much though… i’m still loving the sunlight! (unless the sun still shines bright while it rains? LOL!)
