During our visit to Kustavi we stopped at Mietoinen where my husband spent
his childhood summers. This farmhouse belonged to hubby’s grandfather Malakias
who had to leave his home in Karelia after the war. Malakias cultivated the fields
around the house and raised a big family of 12 children. Today it is difficult to understand
how they all fitted to this small house.
Hubby’s cousin’s son is now living in the house, but he has a construction business,
no cultivating anymore.
This week I combined white chrysanthemums to late summer garden flowers.
