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 tiny river with reflections and water lily leaves makes an interesting combination.
Some photos of our Kosmo.
A warm day.
What did you say?
A summer portrait.
An extraordinary hot weather started at the beginning of May and still continues. At daytime the temperature reaches up to 30°C/ 86°F, nights are too warm for sleeping 20°/68°F, we dont´t have air condition in our houses. A normal summer is about 20°C/68°F-24°C/ 75°F. The biggest problem is drought, we have had only about five rainy days during this hot season. Trees, plants and wild animals are suffering from the lack of water. They are wandering to find a river or a lake.
Enjoy the summer, soon everything is covered with snow, says Kosmo, and wishes happy days to everybody !
And now something you have never seen. A city of Rovaniemi is located at the Arctic Circle. This phto is taken by Eerika Saravuoma and it tells how hot the weather is.
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.
A sad story with almost a happy end.
Hmmmm, I mean I´m sleeping in the rain.
It is coldest summer in twenty years. The sky is like a gray blanket above houses. The nature seems to like it, lots of water and sometimes a warm day. Everything is so green and all the flowers blossom.
We have seen the sun today!
Our cherry trees managed to blossom in spite of a very cold spring. These flowers are like small work of arts, made of silk and amazingly beautiful embroidery.
Light green birches mean here so much. Dark and cold winter is behind. Warm days and white nights are here.
We have now a winterstorm with heavy rain. So it is an excellent time to look back to the days and light nights of last summer. All these photos are taken in the evening or at night.
