Friday Bliss #65 - Blue & White



Today we celebrate in Finland our102nd Independence Day. 
The festivities of the day include military parades, the honoring of the heroes of war and
 a reception at the Presidential Palace organized by the President of the Republic of Finland. 
Finnish embassies & offices abroad also organize similar receptions.

Many European countries celebrate today St. Nicholas' Day and 
Spain celebrates La Constitución española ratified after Franco on Dec 6 1978.
...

BLUE & WHITE are beloved patriotic colors to us Finns.  For today I searched for photos
that symbolize Finnishness to me:  blue sky, pure snow, blue & white flowers, 
midsummer roses, sprouting birches, pines, spruces & forest, ...

Finland is Finnish and Finland is Swedish
Finland is Sami and also Finglish.
Finland is far away and Finland is near,
mobile and global and digi and dear.

⭐️Jukka Ukkola






BLUE & WHITE
Blue is the sky, blues are its eyes.
Blue are the lakes, reflecting the blueness.
White is the snow, white are the nights of summer.
White are the clouds, the sheep of blue sky.

Slow December Days



This week we have had a few bright and sunny days and I enjoyed my Nordic walks a lot.
Yesterday the greyness and rain returned. Yet I did my round, a few impressions.











Her royal highness Sissi does not like wet paws at all.
She keeps me company while I’m reading.

Wishing for White Christmas


The nature is extremely colorless, that is why fairy lights are so welcome!
All Finland wishes always for a white Christmas, because all Christmases of our childhood 
were white. Right now this is how it looks. Hope we get more snow before Christmas.
