Glanced out of the window, and saw this. I had to do a double take as I first thought it really was the first snow!
Luckily it wasn’t – only our neighbour washing his car. After yesterday’s heat, the temperature dropped almost 10 degrees in one night. Who knows how soon the first snow will fall!
An unusually hot day for the time of the year, and I was lucky to be by the sea in Helsinki. The solitary rowan tree really stood out in its striking autumn colours. I could have sat there for ages, enjoying the warmth, and storing all the goodness of the sun for the dark time to come.
Felt like I spent most of today on the bus. I took our five Spanish exchange students for a 2-day training course in Helsinki. At the crack of dawn, we took the bus to Helsinki, two and a half hours. The first programme there, was a 2-hour sightseeing tour, on the bus again!
The Helsinki sightseeing bus was very appropriate for the season – nice maple leaves with reddish edges decorated both sides.
A busy day ended in a spectacular sunset. Lucky for me, as I hadn’t had any time for photos earlier. The red lines were almost like neon lights!
I’ve been expecting to see northern lights one night. There have been articles in the press that this year, we might see them even here in the south. Usually you only see them up in Lapland. The colours here are not the northern lights, but they reminded me of them. Will have to stay up and keep my eyes open on clear nights!
Couldn’t you just imagine a tiny fairy, with transparent wings, hiding behind this umbrella-like cutie, on the thick and soft, mossy-green carpet 🙂
It seems to be a really good mushroom year. Some colleagues boast about dozens of kilos picked in the forest. Sadly, I am not that keen on eating them but find them interesting to look at on the ground.
