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.

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.
This used to be a miserable, smelly pond, and look at it now! Lovely, clear water with beautiful water lilies blooming and ducks swimming. All cleaned up around as well. It’s a pleasant oasis in the middle of a concrete-covered residential area. Nice to see that people care to develop their environment.
These huge old trees offered a welcome shade from the heatwave we’ve suddenly been hit with. I expected fairytale creatures to appear from between the foliage at any minute, walking through this wood. Even the tree trunks had turned green with the flourishing ivy climbing on them. Sunlight streaming through the leaves added to the dreamy feeling.
