Friday Bliss #80 - Welcome Spring & Blue Skies!

The sun makes all the difference! Yesterday it was the first real spring day in Finland -
sunshine, bright sky & swans on their way above my head. It was wonderful to listen to birds 
and enjoy the smell of fresh soil. Under current restrictions there still is the nature 
for us to enjoy. Looking forward to still a bit warmer days & working in the garden.

I listened as audiobook Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge - finally we got it in Finnish!

The Three Smiths by Felix Nylund have been hammering in the center of Helsinki since 1932. 
The statue has been interpreted to symbolize human labour and cooperation between people.
Cooperation, understanding & caring are just what we need today!

I have picked up some catkins to decorate my home...

And to finish some sunny flower joy!

Stay safe and well my dear friends!

  1. Oh yes, it does, and I am happy for you that you are having sun and can get a spring feeling. So it makes fun to decorate for eastern, right ;-) I like catkins, they are for me easter, but over here you can’t get them. So I had to improvise ;-)

    All the best to you, stay well to and take care of yourself



    1. The sun is shining today too, it helps a bit in this anxiety. Wishing you a beautiful day & health!

  2. Dear Riitta,
    everything just stands still, and nature is good and that's a good thing. Thank you for the beautiful pictures and the audio book is definitely beautiful.
    You can now download the audio books from our library free of charge.
    I wish you all the best and stay healthy.

    Greetings Eva

    1. Good morning Eva,
      I confess that I am in shock. I walk daily in the nature at least for an hour - it is the only thing that helps. Wishing that you stay safe & well.

  3. Kevät tulee, ihanaa! Kauniita narssisseja olet löytänyt. Kukat piristävät aina päivää. Mukavaa viikonloppua!

    1. Kevät tulee tänäkin vuonna ja aurinko paistaa! Mukavaa viikonloppua lepis!

  4. Dear Riitta, it is so good that spring are now in the nature. That makes something easier for us. Your decoration and flowers look so nice.
    Stay well and take care of yourself.
    Warm greetings

  5. Liebe Riitta,
    bei uns kann man den Frühling schon etwas länger genießen, und wenn die Sonne scheint, wird es richtig gut. Die Natur wird in diesen Zeiten noch wertvoller.
    Pass gut auf Dich auf und bleib gesund.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  6. Liebe Riitta,
    die Natur lässt sich nicht aufhalten und das ist auch gut so.Gerade in dieser kritischen Zeit,so als wollte sie uns zeigen: seht her,es geht immer weiter.
    Der Osterhase ist toll!
    Liebe Grüße in gesunde Tage

  7. Liebe Riitta
    was für eine schönes Posting aus der Natur und die schönen Narzissen und der Osterhase!
    Ich wünsche dir alles gute und pass gut auf dich auf!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  8. Beautiful yellow flowers. Looking forward to more spring flowers. Have a wonderful day.

  9. The sun really makes the difference! Luckily also in Italy, where I am in my golden prison, it is sunny and mild. I have an old house with a small garden and courtyard too. A blackbird is carrying food to his lady who is now hatching their eggs. Spring is here...
    Have a sunny weekend!

  10. Kevät tulee, se ei välitä mitä ihmiskunnassa tapahtuu, kevät tulee silti ja puhdistaa ihmisten mielet!
    Nautitaan siis kevään ilosta!

  11. Your photos are all so beautiful and bring a smile. Visits to the garden always bring joy. Wishing you safety and good health. Thanks for hosting too!

  12. Onpa piristäviä keväisiä kuvia.
    Kunpa minäkin oppisin käyttämään äänikirjoja.

  13. Hello Riitta!

    Your first two pictures are wonderful! I really like this kind of untouched nature.

    Today I also brought out a little Easter decorations, but none of this is fun without the grandchildren. I belong to the risk group! I want to hope for all of us that the Virsu will be banned soon!

    Stay healthy dear Riitta!

    best regards


  14. Beautiful spring photos, Ritta. I read that book recently and enjoyed it very much. How do you like it? Stay well, Sara

  15. ...the sun makes all the difference, thanks Riitta for hosting, stay safe and enjoy your spring.

  16. Love the birches proudly standing, and the soft catskins:) You have my full agreement: we need cooperation and understanding now, hear hear! Hope you have a pleasant weekend, Friend. A happy spring to you :)

  17. Pretty daffodils. Yes, cooperation is needed. Some people seem to lack the ability to cooperate, and then others step in to make up for it.

  18. Bonita entrada de primavera. Besitos y mucha salud.
