The Weekend Roundup N



As we can’t travel now, I take you to Barcelona, a wonderful city that I visited last time
in 2017 during La Mèrce week. My consolations to Spain in this tragic situation.

Starts with N:
Narrow & Neat alley in Barrio Gótico


Tom’s choice number:
Nobody can count the Number of the pigeons at Plaza de Cataluña!


Starts with N:
Some National heroe?
This is a peaceful square in the old town with tragic past. See the link for
a couple of photos. There are still signs of bombarding on the stone walls.
The text says:

"In memory of the victims of Saint Felipe Neri.
Here, 42 people - mostly children - died in the bombing of Franco January 30, 1938."


Starts with N & my favourite:
Numerous people on the streets used to be Normal

Spring Comes Bouncing



We Finns have a saying Kevät keikkuen tulevi / Spring comes bouncing, referring to spring’s by no means straightforward progression. However, the original meaning is above all related to cattle. In the spring, cattle feed was already scarce, and the cattle could be in very poor condition after the winter. After the snow had melted, the cows were let out of the barn and they were so happy and jumped / bounced literally all over. 

Here some evidence of this bouncing. On Friday it snowed the whole day. Of course this new snow is going to melt soon - and really nobody is happy with this late Winter Wonderland!








The shrub under the apple tre is Rhododenron ’Haaga’.



Happy cows bouncing after let out after winter!

Friday Bliss #82 - White Crocus


Today I’ll recycle some white crocus from April 2018.
The beginning of the week was very windy & cold, not at all spring like...






Springtime in Finland can look like this, too.
This Friday morning it was all white.  Not much of excitement in April, you know.
Underneath some quickly photographed evidence this morning... So funny, isn’t it!



Wishing pleasant & safe weekend!

During this challenging coronavirus situation Sanna Marin
has led the government with calm and wisdom.
This shows clearly in increase of the support of her party, Social Democratic Party.
According to Alma Media the support has risen to 21,1 % from 16, 7 % in a short time.

Congratulations & wise decisions in the future, too!
