    Vähän liian aikaista istuttaa valkosipulia

    Ah winter – you might wish with lots of snow and gray skies that you were back in Malaga…we received since yesterday morning about 900cm of snow, way too much for where we live. Yet the Finns may be more used to this than us. Kinda makes me dream of Malaga too!

  9. Lovely, interesting collection of photos! Love the burst of light over a winter world in the second photo!

  10. avatar Vicki says:

    Love that image of the garlic in the snow, as well as the article about garlic smuggling. I would never have thought it would be such a lucrative thing to do.

  11. And is THAT a smuggled Chinese garlic too? Guess I’ll have to go check out the link to find out! Love that first shot.

  12. avatar Tara R. says:

    The snow shots are beautiful, but I hope Spring arrives soon and brings you some warmth.

  13. avatar TexWisGirl says:

    nice winter scenes, but i can understand you’re ready for spring! 🙂

  14. Don’t know the answer but I do love the shot of the garlic – it is very suggestive!

  15. avatar robin says:

    such a simple object makes such a wonderful picture!! love your shadow shots and the landscapes.

  16. The garlic is so sweet. It gives me hope somehow.

  17. avatar Star Traci says:

    I love the second shot with the streaming sun light.

    Happy Sunday!

  18. avatar Judy says:

    Love winter however prefer to spend some time as a snowbird.

  19. avatar Dorothy says:

    We don’t get much spring here in the Netherlands but I’m definitely looking forward to warmer temps and longer days. And since your winter is colder and harsher than mine I know you’re ready for the end of winter too!

  20. avatar BLOGitse says:

    I can’t get rid of the snow – we spent a weekend at my friend’s summerhouse – there was so much, white snow…yes, it was beautiful. 🙂
    I’m too tired to visit your blogs now, see you tomorrow! Good night!
