A busy week

There has been a lot happening since my previous post: his mother’s visit, his uncle’s funeral, reunion of former colleagues of mine, family gathering to celebrate my youngest sister’s 50th anniversary.



While we were away, most of our apple trees had started to bloom. The lilacs that carried hardly any blossoms last season have revived producing buds all over. The weather is just fine and nature is catching up, if not overriding our average conditions. There is so much to do we are again spending most of the day outdoors. Summer is here – bringing three or maybe even four more months of beautiful busy weeks, should we be lucky.

  1. Beautiful images of the apple blossom and lilac. We are hoping for a good crop of apples as the blossom has been so good.

    1. Thanks. We are always having all our apples pressed for juice so I'm hoping for a good crop, too. Every few years we don't get any because of night frost occurring during the blossom.

  2. Beautiful pictures, it seems that the weather is nicer in your country than in mine!

    1. So I've understood. We had rather good luck with our trip to Italy in April and since our return in early May it's been mostly very nice.

  3. Täällä olikin silmäniloa useamman postauksen verran, kaunista kevättä ja kesääkin oikeastaan jo. Rauhoittavia ja niin kauniita kukkivia puita. Aurinkoista viikonlopun jatkoa, lempeitä kesätuulia ja suloisia tuoksuja.

    1. Kesä tosiaan iski vasten kasvoja sellaisella voimalla, ettei tässä tahdo aistejaan uskoa. Pitää vain haukkoa henkeä: ihanaa!
