A very happy mother’s day to all (especially our moms). We’ve seen today that the Finns take today very seriously – as many shops were open today as on Easter Sunday (i.e. very few!).

We’ve had a lovely day here, with real spring weather and visit from Jesse (all the way from Tartu, Estonia) – spring is in full swing here now, and I thought it would be appropriate to quickly post a few photos of some of the flowers that are out in bloom around here.


A freshly opened daffodil outside our building - I think these opened during the morning.

Blueberry flowers (Vaccinium myrtillus) on Kuolosaari. It will be a while before these flowers turn into fruits!

Tulips outside our apartment building.
