80 :: May Scenery

Jaana: Spring took so long to arrive this year that it hardly had gotten here when summer already stepped in. Today the length of day is 20h 2m, sunrise at 3:03 AM, sunset at 11:06 PM.

Kia: The early-starting but slow-developing spring of this year has provided us with an unusual flower display for the end of May. Today the length of day is 16h 55m, sunrise at 4:47 AM, sunset at 9:42 PM.

A reminder of how our sceneries looked like in April, March, February and January.

Today marks the start of our second year with Finland vs Scotland, so happy 1st anniversary to us! As always, we'd love to see your take on the themes as well, so keep posting your links in the comments to share bits and bobs of your country with us, will you. Your suggestions for future themes are also welcome (scroll down the page for a list of labels to find out what we've already done). If there is something particular you'd like us to show you about Finland and Scotland, do let us know and we'll try to make it happen.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy June ahead, everyone!


  1. Happy Anniversary!
    For the themes I'd be curious about things like a cow / farm, a tank station, a milk container, bakery, a typical breakfast / national food - drink - dessert ... I just like the way you're writing / photographing in this blog! I remember seeing postbox, townhall clocks, bicycle path .... I like <3

    1. Thank you, Nina! Most of your suggestions are actually on our to-do list, so we hope to get at least some of them done in the near future. Cow we already did here. :)

  2. The fountains and flowers are beautiful! Happy Anniversary! :0)

  3. Cool waterworks and beautiful tulips.
