Hope the new year 2014 is treating you well! While we're still waiting for inspiration to strike, we thought of sharing this collage with you as a way of looking back at how 2013 looked like in our little corners of the wood.

Jaana: December has been quite mild and cloudy and overall a dark month, but yesterday's Winter Solstice means that daylight starts increasing again. Today the length of day is 3h 34m, sunrise at 10:29 AM, sunset at 2:03 PM.
Kia: December has been very wet and yet unseasonably warm. Today the length of day is 6h 59m, sunrise at 8:46 AM, sunset at 3:45 PM.
A reminder of how our sceneries looked like in November, October, September, August, July, June, May, April, March, February and January.
Hyvää Joulua! Buon Natale! Merry Christmas!
Thank you all for your visits, comments and shared photos throughout the year. It's been fun, as always, to show you the similarities and differences between Finland and Scotland with our photos. Time for a break for the holidays now, but we'll see you again in 2014.
With our best wishes for a joyous holiday season and a happy New Year,
Jaana & Kia

Jaana: For the most part November was grey and wet, but towards the end of the month we got a proper snow cover. Now just wait and see if it's here to stay. Today the length of day is 4h 59m, sunrise at 9:36 AM, sunset at 2:35 PM.
Kia: Many colorful autumn leaves are still clinging on, but I can hear Jack Frost knocking at the backdoor. Today the length of day is 7h 37m, sunrise at 8:16 AM, sunset at 3:53 PM.

We have been posting so actively for the past few months, up to three themes a week, that now we need a little break to recharge and gather new inspiration. We'll be back with more frequent posts as soon as possible, but for now we'll only post these monthly scenery shots. Enjoy and have a happy (snappy) day!

Jaana: Hooded Crows are one of the most familiar feathered friends found in Finland.
Kia: The Chaffinch is common and widespread throughout Scotland, except in the largely treeless areas of some of the remoter islands, such as the Outer Hebrides and Shetland, where it is scarce or absent.
