Just a few shots from the visits at Vehoniemi Automobile Museum and Vapriiki Museum Centre, where the Post Museum is situated. At Vapriiki is now held Tampere Theatre Exhibition. Both very interesting.
After some rainy, cold days yesterday was such a glorious fall day. Blue sky, at about 15 degrees Celsius, beautiful colorful leaves. Good thing is also today will be a sunny, almost as warm day.
I couldn’t resist 😀
In my last post of September 12th I said I’d take the dahlias and begonias indoors, into the garage, any day because of possible night frost. Well, I didn’t do it. It still has been pretty warm and the forecast said the warmth would continue over this weekend. I should have taken them indoors. The night between Thursday and Friday there was frost on the ground. Anyway, the flowers now are safely indoors. I am sure that, despite all, they are okay and will bloom again next summer.
Time flies. Almost mid September already. It has been raining quite a lot. No night frost yet but, I think I will move the flowers in pots, the dahlias and begonias, indoors for the winter any day now. Today the last bud of the Strawberry Candy day lily is in bloom. Yesterday while I was shooting the last photos of the summer of the dahlias and begonias our cat kept me company from the top of the fence post.
The event Rauta ja Petrooli / Iron and Kerosene is a yearly event. It is taking place in Riihimäki this weekend, Saturday and Sunday. We visited it yesterday. As it was the last time in the fall, 6 years ago when we were there, it also now was a most beautiful summer day. In fact the last day of the summer, Today it is the 1st of September. Officially the first month of fall. The event mainly is about tractors but there also are all kind of other machines, classic cars, trucks, busses, motorbikes, flea market etc. This year the theme was Massey Ferguson.
