End of October looks very colourless in Finland.
Practically all bright autumn leaves have fallen down. We have had some frost nights,
but mainly pretty warm & misty days.
The evenings are dark, so soon it is time to spread fairy-lights in the garden...
I don’t celebrate Halloween and found only these fake pumpkins from my archive.
But to you who celebrate I wish Happy Halloween!
In Finland we celebrate more All Saint’s Day the 3rd of November.
Families get together and we take candles and lichen wreaths to graveyards.
Pierre Lemaitre is one of my favourite French writers and I have read all his production.
This week’s reading has been his newest novel
Couleurs de l’incendie - the second book of the trilogy on World War I.
Lemaitre was awarded the Prix Goncourt, France’s top literary prize, for Au revoir là-haut,
the first book of the trilogy.
I am not quite sure if this is already available in English. Excellent novel!
