Holidays in Finland, part 1

This is the time of the year when I take a bit of a break from blogging and relax on a family holiday in my native Finland. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy – more to follow next week!

Bilberries - Finland

It’s bilberry time in Finland, and I never miss the chance to pick this delicacy and make a pie!


Lingonberries - Finland

The lingonberries are not quite ready yet … but soon!


Red currants - Finland

The redcurrants are ready to be picked, though!


Lake - Finland

The light summer nights allow for late walks around the lakes …


Lake - Finland

… and I adore the calmness of nature you can experience late in the evening.



Wild flowers grow where they please!


Sunset - Finland

The sun sets slowly and puts on wonderful colour displays … this one was taken through the aeroplane window just before we landed …


Sunset - Finland

… and we have had many more to admire!


Sunset - Finland

Sunset through the forest …


Sunset - Finland

… and behind the clouds.
