Pampering afternoon at the hairdresser’s. What a nice way to unwind for the weekend. I almost fell asleep when my hair was being washed, and scalp massaged 🙂

They really know how to display their temptingly colourful bottles – I always end up buying something. This time it was easing my environmental conscience with these ‘save the planet’ products. Probably just a clever marketing ploy but I hope the nature-friendliness is not a total hoax!

Heather branches encapsulated in crystal clear ice during the night – nature’s art at its best! Such natural beauty is surprising, unpredictable, and only visible if we take the time to stop and stare. It’s often ephemeral as well, as this tiny ice scuplture on our balcony, which soon melted away with the afternoon sunshine. The daily alternation of water and ice are sure signs of approaching spring!

Here is another interesting ice formation:

On my cycling routes, I enjoy peeking into people’s gardens. It’s the rustic, unusual, often recycled decorations that appeal to me, such as this creative flower pot.

Some people really have an eye for beauty out of trash that others would send to the landfill without thinking twice. We don’t always need to go and buy brand-new things. It’s nice that just by using your imagination you can give a new life to something old and seemingly useless

#40 persistent beauty

Today’s Daily Shoot inspired me to look around me again, to find beauty on a grey day.

Franz Kafka said “Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.” Make a photo of something beautiful today.

It is a Finnish tradition to put pink Erica heather in our balcony and window boxes for the winter, as it is about the only flowering shrub to survive the arctic cold. This winter has been especially hard, but our tough heather has still retained most of its colour, even after fierce winds and blizzards. We pale and winter-withered humans could take a leaf out of the heather survival guide!
