Floral Bliss #55


We have today - 8 C and the wind is very biting. 
Maybe we need warm color & floral patterns as reminders of summer?
This week I'll share with you my floral cups & energising Ornithogalum dubium
This orange cut flower lasts for ages and is usually sold here in the spring and the Easter time. 
This is available as pot plants too, but to me they look usually pretty modest.

I have had these floral cups for many years, I mostly use them in the summer time.
At the bottom it reads Duchess Bone China and they are made in England.
The photos are from April 2017 when  some Helleborus were in bloom in my garden.



There are these white Ornithogalums as well: Ornithogalum arabicum - Star-of-Bethlehem - Arabiantähdikki and Ornithogalum thyrsoides  - Afrikantähdikki.

White Danger - Valkoinen vaara



Itse en käytä muuten sokeria, ainoastaan suklaassa
- mutta sitä kyllä menee joskus aivan liikaa, on pakko tunnustaa.
Sokerin haitoista voit lukea vaikka täältä.

I use sugar only in chocolates, sometimes I eat way too much, have to admit.
About dangers of sugar you can read here.

Floral Bliss #54


Time flies, next week it's already mid January!
Christmas decorations have found their way to the storage.
I left some lights outdoors to lighten up the dark evenings though.


We have had very grey days and it has been very, very slippery.
But during the last few days there has been bright sunshine and this gorgeous light.
There is hope - the spring is nearing!
I practise daily Nordic walking to keep the gardening fitness ready for spring...


I asked my husband to buy me some tulips, saying the color doesn't matter.
He bought these pretty red ones, maybe that is the only color for men...
I do like them = the color of love after 26 years' marriage ❤︎



We have practically no snow at the moment and outdoors the scenery doesn't offer
much to photograph, however beautiful sunrises have brightened up my mornings.

Floral Bliss #53

I thought to start the new year 2018 with reminders of spring.
I searched for some sprouting branches and spring flowers.
Maybe these please your eye after all that Christmas sparkle and reds.

Color Collage 1 / 2018



I wanted to add a bit glowing flames.
Halusin tähän kollaasiin hiukan loimuavaa tulta.
