Happy Finnish Spring?

World Happiness Report has announced that Finland was again - for the 4th consecutive year - 
the happiest country in the world. The ten happiest countries are: Finland 🇫🇮 Denmark 🇩🇰 
Switzerland 🇨🇭Iceland 🇮🇸 Netherlands 🇳🇱 Norway 🇳🇴 Sweden 🇸🇪 Luxembourg 🇱🇺 
New Zealand 🇳🇿 Austria 🇦🇹. I agree, Finland is a good and peaceful country, but our climate 
could indeed be better. At the moment it is snowing wet snow. 

On Thursday I visited the charming gift shop Koiramäen pajutalli and this is how it looked: 
Still a lot of snow, but clear sky and sun and very sharp shadows. 
This used to be a normal farm house with stalls and sheds painted in red, which is typical Finnish. 
It is a lovely place to visit any time of the year and I always admire their huge trees.
Easter decorations were displayed in the white main building. Due to the pandemic 
me and my husband were the only clients. So sad.

As we were the only customers, we could admire in peace their lovely Easter items.
A great assortment to every taste. I found these royal chickens so cute!

Wishing Happy Weekend!

  1. ...spring has arrived here, we will need to see if it will remain. A happy spring to you Riitta.

  2. Ich wundere mich nicht, diese Weite des Landes, diese schönen Häuser und Farmen. Hach, wenn ich mir die Bilder anschaue dann bekomme ich "Heimweh" nach Nova Scotia d.h. vor allem Lunenburg welches soviel Ähnlichkeiten hat. Absolut toll, und in diesen Gift Shop wäre ich auch zu gerne reingegangen. So schöne Dekorationen, auch die Hühner finde ich toll, würde ich mir sofort in den Garten stellen wollen *gg*

    Hast du dir denn auch nochwas von dort mitgenommen?

    Wünsche dir noch einen schönen Sonntag und sende liebe Grüsse zu


  3. So schön und gemütlich diese Eindrücke und wunderschöne Osterdeko schon zur Einstimmung und Erinnerung das Ostern nah ist!
    Einen herzlichen SonntagsgruĂź zu Dir

  4. It looks much like here, but sunny today. Guess I'm 10,5 % happy, because I'm 10,5 % Finnish, ha-ha :) Well, it's a good life to live in Scandinavia, even if the summer is a bit too short.
    Lovely Easter stuff!

    1. Oh, you have Finnish in your roots, how nice! Scandinavia is a good place to live. You can't have it all!

  5. Dear Riitta,
    I have just linked my current posting on your Friday Bliss. And now I'm reading about the Finnish spring here. I am very happy that Finland is such a happy country and that Austria is also one of the happiest countries :-) Your winters are actually long and hard, but in times of climate change even this cool, humid season has its advantages. And maybe it will comfort you: It has been snowing all day here, too. (And I don't live in the Alps, but near Vienna ...) But I have some spring impressions in my new post.
    Dearest weekend greetings and a happy new week,

    1. Congratulations to Austria too! This has been exceptionally snowy, cold & hard winter due to Covid etc. But the spring is near and we'll enjoy it to the fullest, right Traude!

  6. We saw the happiness article here... I said I wish I liked cold weather better because all the happiest countries seem to be snowy. (I am joking, I do know that is not the criteria. And I very much admire how your country is run.). But brrrr! )) . Your pictures of outside and that adorable store are so pretty!

  7. Hello Riitta,
    I am planning a post about the happiness in Finland. We'll see when I have time to put it together...
    Anyway, I must admit I am happy here. Kiitos, Suomi!

    1. Olet ihana suomalaisuuden puolestapuhuja ❤︎

  8. Servus riitta,
    bei uns liegt auch noch immer Schnee im Garten und heute wirbeln auch wieder ein paar Flocken ;-(
    Aber es ist noch jedes Jahr FrĂĽhling geworden ;-)
    Eine gute Woche mit zunehmender Schneeschmelze,

  9. the fuzzy little chicks are adordaable

  10. Red is so pretty in snow, and I like the shadows in your first capture. Am smiling at the happiness report:) These plush little chicks for Easter/spring are so cute, Ritta. Thanks so much for your All Seasons link!
    Something about next week, since wordpress now completely went over to the new block editor, I have not been able (worked on it for two whole days - nothing happened)to embed the code for the photo link, and it looks like from now on, the link I will use is like the rest of the wordpress people with a permalink in a comment.

  11. Marvelous photos!
    Thanks so much for sharing at https://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2021/03/duke-gardens-memories.html

  12. Lovely photos, the gift shop is so attractive with the red against the snow. How interesting that Finland is in the top 10 of happiest countries - I am not surprised the UK wasn't among them, we moan about everything!

  13. Hidasta on kevään tulo, lunta poluilla vielä tosi paljon. Ja jäätä!

  14. Lovely post, these are adorable figurines. Beautiful nature shots. It would be my pleasure if you join my link up party related to Gardening, Nature and birds here at http://jaipurgardening.blogspot.com/2021/03/garden-affair-stunning-statice-flowers.html

  15. wunderschön sehen die roten Häuser im Schnee aus
    und in dem Laden hätte ich auch gerne eingekauft
    die HĂĽhnchen sind ja niedlich ;)

    liebe GrĂĽĂźe

  16. Upeita kuvia. Onnellisia he, joilla on hieman lapsenmielisyyttä.

  17. Beautiful post ! Thanks for joining in Garden Affair.

  18. Näkyy se lumi hiljalleen sulava. Pääsiäisjuttusi ovat aivan ihastuttavia.

  19. Die typisch roten, finnische Häuser gefallen mir immer sehr!
    Dein Fotoauswahl ist wieder wunderschön zu betrachten.
    ♥lichst Jutta
