It’s spring !

Yes, it’s spring. It’s warm, plus 12 degrees Celsius today. There still is a little snow here and there. Also there still is a thin layer of ice on the lake except for a small area in the southern end of it. The swans like to stay there. I know many already have seen the the Liverleaf in bloom. I saw my first ones today.Swan IMG_7260CSawn IMG_7248CLiverleaf 20190403_143524_HDRC

Liverleaf (Anemone hepatica)

Liverleaf, blåsippa, sinivuokko IMG_3174CLiverleaf, blåsippa, sinivuokko Yesterday on the way back home from the evening walk I saw the first liverleaf in bloom. Soon there will be plenty of them. They will cover the ground and turn it into a blue carpet. Unfortunately I was able to take only one photo before my camera informed it run out of charge. I forgot to charge it last night. I took an other camera with me this morning. So on the way back from the dentist I went to take some more photos. Oh no ! Again, one photo and also this camera run out of charge. Well, I am charging them now 😀

Happy May !

Hurray for May ! The most wonderful time of spring and summer ahead. We have been able to enjoy wild spring flowers already for some time. I get so excited every spring to in mid/end of April spot the first wild anemones “sinivuokot” and “valkovuokot”.

But now is the best time. The temperature is getting warmer and the trees and the grass will be green in no time. Love it !
