Colours All Around Us

 

 

Finland has four very definite seasons and syksy (autumn) has surprised and stunned me with its vibrant colour displays.

We are very lucky in New Zealand to have a native bush reserve behind our house, but I realise now that it is made up of evergreens, that while beautiful, hardly change colour.

My walk home from Finnish class today was punctuated by trees sporting shades that match all the new words we have recently learnt – punainen (red), vihreä (green), keltainen (yellow), oranssi (orange) and ruskea (brown).

The walk around Töölönlahti is different each day as the trees start to drop the leaves we watched them grow only six months ago.

I find the beauty of the city right now is definitely helping me adapt to the cooler weather.

Today was a warm 12 degrees and so Miko and I stayed on after daycare to play with some friends in the leaves.
