*rain


We have finally some rain after months of dryness!
Nature changed instantly into deep greenness
and it got pretty cold over the weekend.
I can't believe that we still have to heat our stoves at the very end of April!

*Flower girl


I made those illustration a while ago when the longing for warmer days reached it's peak.
This year I want to sow new flower sorts again in my garden, that I haven't tried out yet.
I also started to dry plants again for a new herbarium and played around with ink and pencil.
Have a nice spring day!

*apricot bloom


A dream not only for the bees –
blooming apricot trees.

*Hello, spring!


{Music: The Finnish Line – Colm Mac Con Iomaire}

The cleaned out greenhouse,
the apricot bloom,
nature is awakening of it's deep sleep,
my designed bunny postcard, 
some outgoing mail,
planting a new peach tree,
growing seeds inside for the coming garden season,
tea time and dried flowers
and many spring walk with Sunny dog.

*snowdrops


In the meantime, liverworts have replaced the snowdrops in the forests,
I have piked my seedlings and finished preparing the garden beds to sow when temperatures are more stable. I thought we were done with winter, but they say it will snow on the weekend, so let's see how it will be then. We also pruned our cherry laurel hedge which became a big task since it has grown so well. It took us 3 days. What a good feeling when it is done!
Right now the cherry trees are starting to bloom and also the plum trees are slowly opening their buds. Finally also life energy is returning more and more in my body after the long winter months. The sun is doing it's miracles. Good times are ahead! Enjoy the spring!

Pictures from our mountain trip.
Sunny enjoyed sitting next to the tiled stove into the sunshine as much as I enjoyed looking at him :)
