I have told you about our visit to Kustavi last summer. We stayed at the summer cottage of DH’s daughter Nana. The place is on the seaside and the views over the sea are very peaceful and beautiful. They have there the old cottage with sauna, a boathouse and a new cottage built two years ago. It is a cape with a lot of granite cliffs in sight - that I love.
At the summer cottages we Finns have mostly outdoor toilets called huussi!
Nana and Sami have a brand new one.
Unfortunately their brown Tibetan terrier Sisu died a couple weeks ago
and the black Milo is now alone.
Me and DH did there some gardening jobs. Among other things made
this small planting with Stachys bysantina and Physocarpus opulifolius ’Diablo’
and some low spireas - all seedlings from my garden.
On the shore there was a rotten salix where tens of Vanessa atalantas lived!
They looked stunning in the warm evening sun. Somehow I am not able to upload the video.
Last weekend we celebrated the 50th birthday of Nana and the 18th birthday of her son Anton.
Anton here in a black t-shirt. Essi hugged her aunt.
Looking longingly forward to the summer.
Thank you for the all lovely comments last week. Wishing you a bright & sunny winter weekend!
