White Weekend

We got snow alright! Yesterday I was so exhausted from shoveling, you can't imagine.
But today almost totally recovered. The scenery is white, the sky grey.
So no light for photographing. That's why the outside photos are from last winter
when it was  a bit winter sun to be seen.

Sissi wants to go out first thing in the morning. I have to keep a path open for her.
She watches squirrels, blackbirds etc. Even on a leash I have to be careful for she attacks like a lighting!

In accordance with the snowy scenery my tulips for this weekend are white.
I tried to imitate Mascha, for she has a blue theme at her blog.
I used a painting found at a flee market & some necklace to create blue atmosphere.
It is pretty awkward, but I got blue shades!

Green Weekend

Wishing you all a lovely January weekend!

Floral Bliss #55

We have today - 8 C and the wind is very biting. 
Maybe we need warm color & floral patterns as reminders of summer?
This week I'll share with you my floral cups & energising Ornithogalum dubium
This orange cut flower lasts for ages and is usually sold here in the spring and the Easter time. 
This is available as pot plants too, but to me they look usually pretty modest.

I have had these floral cups for many years, I mostly use them in the summer time.
At the bottom it reads Duchess Bone China and they are made in England.
The photos are from April 2017 when  some Helleborus were in bloom in my garden.

There are these white Ornithogalums as well: Ornithogalum arabicum - Star-of-Bethlehem - Arabiantähdikki and Ornithogalum thyrsoides  - Afrikantähdikki. 

Helsinki time
Please join & share your photos with us!

Wishing you all a colorful week! - Värikästä viikkoa toivottelen!

White Danger - Valkoinen vaara

Itse en käytä muuten sokeria, ainoastaan suklaassa
- mutta sitä kyllä menee joskus aivan liikaa, on pakko tunnustaa.
Sokerin haitoista voit lukea vaikka täältä.

I use sugar only in chocolates, sometimes I eat way too much, have to admit.
About dangers of sugar you can read here.
