Friday Bliss #79 - Grey & Rainy


The weather has been grey and rainy. So my photos are in those shades, too
and the lack of daylight reflects in them... Last Sunday my husband surprised me.
I was so fond of this dragonfly, and he bought it to me as Women’s Day present ❤︎



Another present was this simple round glass container with a sedum - necessary protection 
because of Sissi! The container can be used for floating cut flowers later on.




To finish a female statue in the rainy Kaisaniemi Park in Helsinki.
It is called Convolvulus and dates back to 1931. The sculptor was Viktor Jansson,
the father of the mother of the Moomins Tove Jansson.
The name is a bit odd and comes from Convulvulus arvensis - wild Morning glory.

  1. Guten Morgen Riitta,

    liebe von deinem Mann, dass er dir die Libelle geschenkt hat. Sie gefällt mir auch sehr gut.
    Und noch eine Vase, Kugelvasen gefallen mir immer und ich habe auch einige im Schrank. Die idee kann ich ja mal übernehmen mit dem Blumenstock. Toll.
    Jetzt hatte ich fast gedacht, diese Statue steht in deinem Garten und du hast sie auch geschenkt bekommen.
    Hab einen schönen Tag.
    Liebe Grüße Eva

  2. Liebe Riitta,
    die Libellenspange ist wunderschön. Libellen sind faszinierende Geschöpfe. Im Sommer beobachte ich sie gerne am Gartenteich.
    Bei uns war das Wetter in den letzten Tagen auch nur Grau in Grau mit viel Regen und Wind.
    Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende.

    Viele liebe Grüße
    Wolfgang

    1. Hi Kirsi. In Finnish we add the word wolf there and say sudenkorento. Suden meaning wolf's. Languages are so funny!
