Miscellaneous in Mist

I try to walk daily at least for an hour. I took these photos on a grey & misty morning,
and it shows on the photos - so sorry. But the weather was lovely & gentle, no wind
and about -1 C. If only we got a bit of snow, it would lighten up the scenery and the mood.

Now bare, but in the summer this Salix alba var. sericea 'Sibirica’ vas lush!
For Makrotex: Before - After.

In my neighbourhood there is a mix of new and old houses. The properties used to be bigger in earlier times and now they are being divided in two.
This beautiful old house surrounded by giant spruces is undergoing a renovation.

A misty view of their interesting fence!

A local small garden center is along my route and to my astonishment they were open.
They are going to have a Christmas happening in two weeks, mostly kids in mind,
and there were a lot of lovely plantings & creatures made out of wicker, salix or other twigs.

Would be so lovely if this snowman got a white snow jacket!

They even had a tipi or traditional Sami hut where customers can sit by the fire
and grill their sausages!

Even Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer is looking forward to snow & Christmas!

Some original Finnish music for the day -
Badding has stunning hits and he is one of my favourites.

Window Princess by Rauli Badding Somerjoki (1947-1987)

This sad love story goes like this:
For a young guy it would be wise not to trust in women, because they cause a lot of trouble. But he dares to stare at a window, where the princess of his dreams is standing and looking out. She's the prettiest of all women he knows. 'Oh Glendora, how I adore you’, he sings. But another guy stoles his pretty princess.

  1. Wonderful pictures of Autumn, Riitta! I love them all!
    Wishing you a wonderful new week,
    Love and hugs, Claudia xo

  2. That's nice of you to show us your neighborhood. I can say that I like what I see and a nursery nearby is great. I would probably go in there more often. I immediately fell in love with Rudolph. Just the right thing for Christmas for the own garden or as a gift.

    I wish you a good start into the new week and also greetings over to you


  3. Fine things in the fog and a lovely song, never heard before (of course!) - it's often a big trouble and grief with love, I know that from my youth years... but it can be better by getting older - what a luck!
    Send you sunshine and a little snow

  4. ...Riitta, there's noth to be sorry about with these beautiful images. The winter color on the ivy is a delight! Your local garden center sure has a lot of gorgeous things. Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy your week.

  5. What a beautiful neighborhood . . . and, i like the photos exactly the way they are . . . snow will come soon enough. 😊

  6. Se ve todo precioso. Besitos.
