Friday Bliss #31 - Back Winter

My joy of spring start was premature. Last week we had wonderful & warm weather,
and I was out for hours... But this week the winter came back, as it often does.
In Finnish this phenomenon has a specific word: TAKATALVI - meaning recurring wintry weather, literally back winter. It has been chilly, windy and we got new wet snow.
I have had no desire for garden work... I am not that eager.
From Palm Sunday on it’s forecast warmer weather again - we’ll see!

Outside nothing grows yet, so I went to a garden center to admire flowers & green!

We have in Finland Parliamentary election on Sunday. MPs are elected for four years.
Going to be exciting as always.

 Wishing you a beautiful Palm Sunday!

    1. Does not matter Miyako :) Every time I text with mobile, my words turn out so funny! Happy weekend!

  7. Riitta - I can relate to your "backwinter". Here, it seems we are having three seasons in one day! You are very clever to go to the garden center for a shot of spring; the flowers are lovely and the ceramic chicken made me giggle. Thanks for hosting Friday Bliss, and a happy Palm Sunday to you as well. Easter is almost here!

  8. I also know very well the takatalvi. It happens!
    In spite of that I wish you a warm weekend...
    (Your Easter chicken are cute!!)

  9. Ihanat kevään tunnelmat kukkineen siellä takatalven keskellä!
    Hyvää viikonvaihdetta ja palmusunnuntaita!

  10. Dear Riitta,
    those are again quite charming flower photos, which you show us.
    Wonderful are these pastel tones.
    I am always enthusiastic about your photo art!
    Thank you very much für´s show.
    Very dear greetings

  11. Takatalvi tuli, mutta pian sekin on muisto vain:)
    Ihanat kuvat tuovat tuulahduksen pääsiäisestä ja keväästä.
    Hyvää viikonloppua ja palmusunnuntaita!

  12. ...white is a color that goes with everything, beautiful images. Thanks for hosting.

  13. We get back winter too. Sometimes we have two seasons in the same day! Thanks for hosting.

  14. Lovely nursery garden flowers, Riitta. After a couple of warm weeks, we are now experiencing cooler days, but it's still very springlike. Rain and sun are good for the flowers and gardens. Happy weekend, and I hope the elections go well. Palm Sunday blessings to you.

  15. Liebe Riitta,
    heute bin ich das erste mal bei Freitags Freuden dabei und bin begeistert von der Blütenpracht in deinem Blog.
    LG Lieselotte

  16. Feliz domingo para ti.
