Stepping back


Just a few days ago we were enjoying views like this in Italy:








Back home spring is so much behind returning felt like you were taken too many steps backwards. The views we found at home were at their best like this:

















This is the meadow of ours that might in a hundred years or so be someone's vineyard or olive grove.



They told in the news migrating birds haven’t been returning this late in at least 50 years. In any case, the snow is gone and I’m back among the living after what felt the worst winter season ever. I suppose we will manage if we turn from wide angle to zoom for a while. Talking about zoom, I was chasing a couple of butterflies yesterday and the brimstone (Conepteryx) (sitruunaperhonen) finally landed on a daffodil at my reach. With butterflies appearing, there is some hope even for us.

  1. Ihania kuvia Italiasta! Onneksi varasimme juuri tänään pikkumatkan Gdanskiin kesäkuuksi joten meilläkin on jotain odotettavaa!

    1. Vaikka sielläkin on tänä vuonna luonto myöhässä, oli kuitenkin jo vihreää. Ei millään jaksaisi odottaa, että vehreys saapuisi tänne saakka.
