85 :: June Scenery

Jaana: It's been a hot, sunny summer so far! Today the length of day is 21h 45m, sunrise at 2:28 AM, sunset at 00:13 AM.

Kia: June has been cold and blustery, with drizzle and heavy downpours and just a few sunny spells. Although, the meadows full of buttercups have been a really cheering sight. Today the length of day is 17h 29m, sunrise at 4:36 AM, sunset at 10:05 PM.

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

81 :: Dog Sign

Jaana: Every spring there is a huge dog poop debate on discussion forums when the melting snow reveals the habits of some dog owners. As a responsible dog owner who does pick after their pooches, I still find broken bottles and general littering much big of an issue overhere.

Kia: Dog fouling is a major issue for many of our towns and cities. Some dog owners still fail to clean up after their dogs even if stickers like this have been placed on regular litter bins in areas where there are no special bins.
