I tried to take a photo of dandelion seeds and here is what I got. Kosmo is very curious cat, he has to know what is happening around. A nice photo for Caturday.
This July is among the rainiest Julys ever. Every day is raining. Autumn is already near. The light nights are over. In the northernmost part of Finland, in a village of Utsjoki, the sun has set for the first time since 16 May. Here is an interesting link to see sunrises and sunsets in Utsjoki. https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/finland/utsjoki

A great day for a walk with your loved one.
A swan is our national bird, and amazingly beautiful.
“Whether you’re a brother or whether you’re a mother
You’re stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive
Feel the city breakin’ and everybody shakin’
And we’re stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive”. A quotation of the lyrics Stayin´alive by BeeGees.
This song started to play in my head when I took these photos in our yard. We are, as almost everybodey else, limited our walkings to our yard.
These commom hepaticas are a true sign of spring.
Crocuses pop up every spring all over the yard.
Still some snow.
A catphoto a day keeps us smiling. Our boy is researching if there is any edable grass.
This morning looks like Christmas. The photo is not black and white, the world is.
Tempetature +12°C/ 54 °F. Temperatura +12°C.
The first ones in blossom. Los primeros en flor.
Changing summer tires. Cambio de neumáticos de verano.
The nature is waking up.
La naturaleza despierta.
The lake is almost free of ice, the sun is shining, it is the spring. The lake is Karhijärvi in Lavia, photos taken 20.3.2020, at Vernal Equinox day. A long day, six months started at the North Pole, and we will have soon the light nights.

In this photo is a normal February in Finland. Now this Februry 2020 is not normal, here is some snow and it is melting away, because it is raining again.
These words from the song at the time of the Aquarius came to my mind today, because the long rainy season seems to be over, and we had cold day with bright sunshine.
The sun is still quite low.
Frost made trees look like covered with sugar.
Birds sat high in the trees letting the sun warm their tiny bodies and they were singing all the time.
A normal January afternoon, not like today, raining, raining…
This pandabear girl lives in Finland, in the animal park of Ähtäri. Her name is Lumi, Snow. The boybear, who lives in the neighbor apartement, is Pyry, Blizzard. They both are very young, maybe after some years they will have babypandas.
This panda looked so happy eating a carrot, and watching all the people looking at her. I had a feeling she was watching us just like the same way we were watching her. She is so cute!

This photo is taken in the year 2008. I had a small camera, Canon Power Shot A 590 IS.
January 2020: It is raining so hard and it is totally dark, impossible to take photos.
January 2019: Like a normal January in Finland.
January 2018: Our lane, looks very normal in January.
Our ice box was quite empty, so we drove to town of Ikaalinen to buy groceries. Before shopping we saw the this sunset, and drove around to find the best place to see it. We didn´t have cameras with us, so these photos are taken by phones. This lake, Kyrösjärvi, is not frozen yet, in some years we have alraedy been ice fishing.
This winter seems to be special, October was colder than normally, then it started to rain, in November here was flood alert. In Western Finland water in rivers and lakes flooded to fields. At the beginning of December we had some snow, it melted away. At Christmas night is was snowing, in the Boxing Day raining. The Year 2020 started without snow, temperature +3°C/ 39°F. Normally at this time we have snow enough to ski, temperature about -10°C/ 14°F. Very interesting to see the mid winter in February, skiing or swimming.
Great, no snow. Walk with me through the new year.
Look, how soon, in two days, all the snow melted away. The temperature is now +4°C/ 39°F.
This photo is takent today 30.12.2019.
This photo is taken 26.12.2019. The temperature was -6°C/ 20°F.
Here is a link to very great site, the text also in English. This village Hetta is situated in the Northern part of Finland, in Lapland. You will see the village right now in the live camera. There is also a video of the Polar Night last year. It is not dark, even thought the sun is under the horizon.
The polar night occurs in the northernmost and southernmost regions of the Earth when the night lasts for more than 24 hours. This occurs only inside the polar circles. The opposite phenomenon, the polar day, or midnight sun, occurs when the Sun stays above the horizon for more than 24 hours. “Night” is understood as the center of the Sun being below a free horizon. Since the atmosphere bends the rays of the Sun, the polar day is longer than the polar night, and the area that is affected by polar night is somewhat smaller than the area of midnight sun. The polar circle is located at a latitude between these two areas, at the latitude of approximately 66.5 degrees. In the northernmost city of Sweden, Kiruna, at 67°51’N, the polar night lasts for around 28 twenty-four-hour periods, while the midnight sun lasts around 50 twenty-four-hour periods. While it is day in the Arctic Circle, it is night in the Antarctic Circle, and vice versa.
Our cat, Kosmo, is working on the yard. Have a great weekend!
Nuestro gato, Kosmo, trabajando en el patio. ¡Ten un excelente fin de semana!
This lake Pitkäjärvi with huge wetland for birds is on the border of Harjavalta and Kokemäki. At the time of autum foliage there is already quiet. Birds have left for warmer countries, but the scenery is amazing.
Autumn leaf color is a phenomenon that affects the normal green leaves of many deciduous trees and shrubs by which they take on, during a few weeks in the autumn season, various shades of red, yellow, purple, black, blue, orange, magenta, and brown.
