I haven’t written much lately, but it does not mean I haven’t done anything. Actually, I have been super busy since summer came to Finland, and to visit my sweet home in countryside. I have captured many photos along the spring and early summer, and now it is time to show what I got! So, enjoy the sights! Btw. Because I’m so tired currently, I don’t care to arrange the photos in chronological order. So, the photos seem to go from summer till spring and in somewhat random order π
Spiky nettles are growing next to the door into my workshop. Nice colors!
A young crow is hiding in a birch. It was hilarious as the crow raised on its wings and flew from the home spruce to the birch, while the fieldfares chased it π
Brother and sister crows are still moaning for food in a home spruce.
Fieldfares also attacked at the mother crow.
A couple of swallows are chatting on a line.
My girlfriend and I quickly improvised this green house for her tomatoes π
Second grilling session during this summer!
Wood sorrel salad.
Red onions ready for the grill! I seasoned the onions with salt, pepper, honey, and oil.
This is one of the projects I’ve been making. A sawing table for my bandsaw I got as a graduation gift. Notice also the big industrial vacuum cleaner. A handy tool for keeping my workshop clean!
The band saw rests on the log secured in the table with the threaded rods. The vacuum cleaner is connected to the band saw.
A random pic taken during a work day. Once I was walking to my work, and I saw a dirty wagtail running in front of me. I caught the bird easily next to a worksite, and noticed brown, oily stuff in its feathers. I put the bird in my pocket and then in a box, and called to an animal expert who came and took the wagtail to clean it. I hope the bird is now fine! We reasoned that the bird was otherwise fine but maybe got dirty in the worksite somehow?
The wagtail under my office table waiting for the animal expert.
A young fieldfare hiding in a spruce.
Buds of a spruce.

Millions and millions of dandelions under blue sky. My beautiful countryside π

An alert fox came to say hi.
And soon it disappeared in the dark forest.
Can you spot the hare?
On mothers day I took my mother to a stream to learn to take digital photos. We managed to get a couple of nice pictures. The building on the left side is an old power plant.
A bud of fern.
We found these nice ceramic objects. Such a nice subject for photographing!
An evil cat looks like it is going to kick some ass!
Can you spot the second hare?
A moose came to visit us π
Harebells in a calm forest.
Once I was orienteering and almost run over these two adders. They were chubby and likely full of voles and mice.
A wreck, melancholic barn.
A skull of an unknown animal, covered with green moss.
Four wood pigeons eating in field.
Gay mallards are keeping a pride parade in a ditch π
“What you are staring at human???” said the roe deer.
“Come on worms, cross the road!” said the mistle thrush.
My girlfriend and her vegetable garden she borrowed from the landlord.
Neutralizing some horse shit with lime for planting the green fence our landlord wanted. As a counter service we got some firewood π
A vole did not survive till the summer.
Mallard party under a small bridge in icy water.
Here is my parent’s cat called miuku (means kind of meow in Finnish). The end!
