This was a surprise, because they don´t show themselves normally.

I was watching out of our kitchen window at midnight and I saw this. For a second I thought it is a huge cat, then I recognized it. Supikoira, a raccoon dog.

The warmest May ever!

IMG_9090 Koivut.jpg

What a month, we have enjoyed of warm weather every day.  The borderline between warm and hot is here 25°C / 77° F. In May we had 14 days over that borderline and it is all times record. Normally we don´t have so many hot days during the whole summer. Now it starts to be too dry, last rain was on the 3rd of May and the nature is suffering. We are told to have water bowls in our yards for birds, hedgehogs, for everybody.
