I'm a bit extatic about riding my bike this summer, and planning small cycling trips around the city. My knee that I've had trouble with for a long time, now seems happy with the cycling, too. Places like the Mustikkamaa beach (where the photo was taken) feel much closer now.
I spent a beautiful Midsummer at the mökki. It's rare to get such lovely weather on Midsummer here: we got to spend most of the time outside - and didn't need our winter coats. Midsummer was also the time for some baby birds to leave the nest. This one hiding in the grass wasn't quite ready to fly yet. It was safe from the cat, though.
Last Easter we had lived in our new home for a two months, and I had gotten on my feet again after my knee operation. We went for a walk and I got some willow branches that Simo liked. Snow was making room for the spring, and only a few weeks later I saw these sweet crocusses. Happy Easter holidays!
