Finally we have got summer temperatures of 19-25 C. In the sun on our terrace 35 C!
It has been a gorgeous week. The nature is awakening rapidly, trees are sprouting
and new joys can be noticed every day. I have Anemone ranunculoides growing
in many places. Have not planted them, they have just appeared by themselves.
I don’t usually buy hydrangeas, neither in pot or as cut flowers,
because I don’t know how to take care of them.
As Mother’s Day present I got this gorgeous lilac hydrangea together with
a beautiful poetry book: To Mother, poems about life and love.
The book contains classic Finnish poetry of Eino Leino, Katri Vala,
Saima Harmaja, Uuno Kailas etc. Such a sweet gift.
by Katri Vala (1901-1944)
The earth bubbling with purple lilac sprays,
white mildew of the rowans,
red star clusters of sticky catchflies.
Blue, yellow, white flowers
undulating as meadows of mad seas.
And the smell!
More wonderful than the holy incense!
Hot and vibrant and madly insane,
the pagan scent of the earth's skin!
Live, live, live!
Live furiously the high moment of life,
the petals extremely open,
live blooming fabulously.
Be delirious about the scent, the sun -
be drugged, live to the fullest!
What about the fact that death is coming!
What about that this multicolored beauty
falls withered onto the ground.
After all, we have blossomed once!
The sun has shone,
the great and burning love of heaven,
directly to our blooming hearts,
Thank you for all the lovely comments you leave week after week at Friday Bliss.
Wishing a sunny weekend!
