April comes to its end and the spring has come even to Finland. The snow has melted away
and I have started to work in the garden. There are tiny signs of new growth:
crocuses, scillas and bursting buds. I got these sunny tulips from a visiting friend
and combined them with lime button chrysanthemums.
Selma and Silva got sterilized and they wore this kind of protectic wear,
which was much more comfortable than collar. The first days they were tired
but are now their lively selves. They will celebrate their 8 month birthday on May 2.
Vappu - May Day and the eve of First of May are traditional big celebrations in Finland
with student caps, balloons, booze, tippaleipä and sima / mead, a fermented citrus drink.
But I have grown too old for extravagances and prefer take it easy and stay home!
