Sunday Trekking

We had a super sunny and warm weekend here in Southern Finland. It truly feels like the summer has now arrived, let's hope it will stay like this.

I spent Saturday at a craft event in Helsinki. Lots of good stuff was going on there: garage sales, live music and people having picnic in unusual places. And our small sales event too (not sure if I should call it a craft market or something like that). I enjoyed all happenings a lot!

On Sunday I went outdoors with H. We headed to a new area to us, Lohjansaari which is about 30 minutes by car from our place. There was really beautiful scenery with apple ranches, fields and forests which were kind of surrounded by a big lake making it like an archipelago. We took a trekking path through an enchanting forest and I was amazed that there were still large fields of wood anemones everywhere. We also found fungi, false morels (Gyromitra esculenta) which are well known for growing in spring and early summer.

We heard lots of birdies chirping all around the forest. Very relaxing!

Little ferns have beautiful leaves

Best part of a trekking trip? A coffee break with sandwiches!

I love mossy forests. They remind me of our childhood playing places.

Here and there I saw wood anemones in pink. It's very unusual I think.

We are already planning our next trip to a place near this area. I wish we could make one every weekend. I hope to take pictures and show you my newest wholesale order before packing it for Paris in a few days. Wishing a great new week to you!
