Floral Bliss #6



No signs of spring yet but from last year's March and April archives some photos.



There were many new showers of snow at the beginning of March...

Soon the signs of spring started to appear...




Bunnies left some crocus for me to admire...

My rhubarb is so vigorous!

Perennials started to pop up...

And buds inside in a vase...



But this blue sea of scillas is always the best sight!

I'll finish with a fun photo of my Facebook friend Harri Poutanen.
This is how the Finnish ducks pass he long and tedious winter days!



And this is how my January 2017 looked like.

January 2017


I photographed very little. The weather was not inspiring, it was so dark and grey.


Frost flowers were beautiful at the beginning of the month...


And the tulips brightened my days...


So did the 20 books I read!



Wishing you a great February!

Ruskeaa Brown


This week's Makrotex Challenge is BROWN.  
Here a random sample of browns from my archives.

But I do love you and your attitude!

Miss Universe 2030?




This week's topic at Our Beautiful World is BEAUTIFUL, chosen by Mandy. 
There is so much beauty and beautiful things in the world and in my life. 
I'll share five short thoughts of beauty.

1 Female Beauty
Soon it is time to crown again the new Miss Finland, so a few words about Finnish international beauty queens.
  • Six times a Finnish girl has been crowned as Miss Europe: in 1934 Ester Toivonen, 1938 Sirkka Halonen, 1955 Inga-Britt Söderberg, 1968 Leena Brusiin and 1976 Riitta Väisänen.
  • We have had one Miss World: in 1957 Marita Lindahl.
  • And two times Miss Universe: in 1952 Armi Kuusela and in 1975 Anne Pohtamo.

The year 1952 was a great year for us Finns. We had summer Olympics in Helsinki and Armi Kuusela (Williams, Hilario) was elected as Miss Universe! She was the first real superstar in Finland - when she came to visit there were thousands of people meeting her at the airport. She has been so beloved through the years! Armi lived years in the Filippines, was married to Gil Hilario and moved later to California with her second husband.



So is she Miss Universe 2030? My photo is not good but isn't there a resemblance?
Those huge eyes, beautiful nose, the lovely lips, that angelical expression...
You never know!

 2 Beauty of Family & Friends

At my grandson's confirmation party there were a few of these beautiful young ladies!




3 Beauty of the Nature


4 Beauty of  Summer Bouquets


5 Beauty of Reading & Book Covers


And to finish with:

Extra Beautiful News!
