SORRY! had to butt in and post some more! (I'm kinda bored at the moment!) So this is just a comparison how the same area near by looks during summer and winter, Sadly because of the crappy winter with too little snow so it doesn't look anything impressive...

Heh! Yeah, it does! Finland is a beautiful country, but the people here are one of the worst I know! thus, avoiding human contact at all cost seems to be the main thing I do... Strange how rarely people visit the woods nowadays... I've been sending pictures of woods rather than my home, mainly because architecture at Finland is just ugly boxes where people live in! and besides... I'm more at home in the woods than inside a box...

Wonderful photo comparison between (late?) spring and winter. It reminds me of a place I used to visit during winter holidays all my childhood. When I was grown up, I visited it for the first time in sping, without snow. And it looked totally different. But there were also all the flowers on the meadows...
Even though this might be only little snow for Suomi, I think it is still better than most places further south. I miss snow. It makes things enchanted and brightens up wintertime.

I can't judge the people in your country, Berit, but there are silly people in every country I guess.

Oh wow, these are beautiful! Man, I love to live close to nature sooo much!
Always too many people around when I take a walk in the woods as well....
The violet willow herbs bloom in Germany in summer as well. I am very happy to have some nice specimen of them in my garden. Beautiful! And edible!
And still there's much more snow than here... at least it was cold the last couple of days.

Took me some time to find some image hoster and make an account but hopefully it'll work.
A few impressions from around here, but already > 1 week old.


Crocus and Snowdrops

jaRf! Those are beautiful! I work in Frankfurt and live in the mountains, so I always get to the the crocus in bloom twice. I love them! A beautiful sign of Spring. Also, insects appreciate them!
Nicely taken photos as well! More!

Berit, I am hopefully finally able to post a little bit and comment again, so I will look for those pics! I am sure a have some.

I found two pics of the willows that decided to make our garden their home:






More to come! :D

Well, time of spring depends also here. As Treefox said, in the mountains (higher, colder) spring comes later, in the lower parts of the countries and especially in towns (always a few °C warmer) it's normally earlier. And of course, there are different sorts of the same plant-species/race. Some are earlier, some blossom later.
Winters became short and soft, lately. Back in the days in the mountains you could have also snow blocking your door entrance in the morning. ;)

Yes, some are a good opportunity for the early insects.
F.a.M. I guess? Mountains? The next "real" mountains are far away. In the northern part the highest on should be the Harz, to the south east it should be Thüringer Wald and Erzgebirge and to the south / south west you needed to travel all the way down Bavaria oder Baden-Württemberg to the mountains... that would mean you can only see your home on weekends?

These are some nice colours. Especially when the light is good, some coming from the back of the petal, shining through.
I had some problems with the white ones (snowdrops and ... uh, Märzenbecher) when the sunlight was shining on them (whiteout and not details). And I miss my old macro capable lens. I need money to get myself some more lenses for the camera. *sigh*

Yes, it is F.a.M indeed. And sorry, maybe I should have been more specific. The "mountains" I am talking about are the Taunus mountains. They're only medium mountain range, nothing spectacular as the alps.  :)
So, if I am not roaming the country on business trips I get to go home every night. :)
And I hear you about the lenses... sometimes I miss my old mechanic camera. It was so very nicely equipped with macro lens and tele lens... The pics were taken with a Panasonic compact camera. So the nice result is surprising. A neat camera, but sometimes it seems to be pure chance whether the pics turn out this nicely... ;)

Oh! so those are called purple willows there? hahah! here they are called Horsma!... and they are EVERYWHERE during certain times and there can be big meadows full of them... also bunnies seem to like eating them a lot...

And you all have cameras? hehe! I just use my crappy cellphone to take some pictures... macro lens would be cool though...

and Jarf... I know the snow blocking the door! when I lived further away from people, it was impossible to go anywhere because of snow at certain times... You had to get moths worth of food just in case... I never minded that... actually it was fun being alone like that... back in those days I melted snow for drinking water during winter... sadly, it's gotten so polluted now that it's not wise to drink rain/snow water...

Just to show why I was so baffled that flowers bloom there already... this is the weather here today! dark and snowing! it was snowing so much that people might get lost in the forest because you can't see far in this weather...

My camera is becoming somewhat dated but it still works. And it is an entry level DSLR. But I'm quite happy with it. It's also always a monetary question, no money, no additional lenses, no HDR sensors and so on.

Spring is coming to country here now, the weather changes quickly (typically for April in this area). I totally missed snow this year (fall last year) due to workloads. I think when snow has fallen just right now in the rural areas of a country it's probably still edible. After all it is still more or less frozen distilled water (the question is how many super volatile fine particles are in the atmosphere). In a town it quickly gathers all the dust and fumes and dirt. Your area looks good for skiing. Not too steep, not always flat, should be fun to go on a ski-hike.

It's long ago that I was in the Taunus, unlike Frankfur am Main, which I occasionally drive by (3 times per year) or change trains at the railway station. So yes, it's all relative. Does the Taunus already count as Mittelgebirge?

As jaRf mentioned, we woke up to snow on April 1st... Wow. Just wow. Next day we had almost 20 degrees. Unbelievable.
But nice to see that you at least had some more snow, Berit.
And jaRf, official the Taunus are Mittelgebirge. Well, to me being from North Germany, they sure seems like that! ;)
If you should ever come by, let me know. We always have a nice fireplace and beverage to offer. :D

Here spring is driving forward, today I could glance at a lot of different colors in the gardens. Tulips in red, yellow and other colors, magnolia in white and violet, small blue on the grounds and big white clouds from apple, cherries, peach, apricot and so on. Makes me forget the worries of life. And I should have taken a photo, but I guess I still have a few from last year around the same time.
I heard in Finland there are still the last pathes of snow melting. Unless you're living in higher mountain regions the only thing you see here is an occasional hail during April.

And thanks for the kind invitation. :) Occasionally I actually come by the Frankfurt am Main region on travels.

So I don't have many pictures of my apartment, it being a city scape and all, the only pictures I have are like. Two years old? And taken when I was looking for a new roommate, lmao. I'm going to work on that. In the mean time, I have some images of where I have been working this summer, Dagali. Which is a tiny speck in the mountains, I work there as a guide on the museum. These were taken in July-August so they are already a while ago, but I hope you enjoy!





The girls next door to the museum!



And a picture of some things I did to occupy my time when there was few customers... weaving bracelets!

Hey Startear! Your photos aren't visible, Photobucket changed their 3rd party hosting a while back :)

Ah, so I'm not the only one. And I already though it was due to my restrictive browser settings.
Photobucket went down the drain major style the last years. And a lot of art that was posted on the former Scrolls was linked in via photobucket.

Yeah it's pretty awful! I used it a ton for both personal and work related projects and the way they shut down hosting on other sites was suuuuper unprofessional. I understand that storage like that is expensive, but at least give folks a bit of warning.

What is a good alternative to photobucket?

I use imgur, but I haven't really searched for alternatives. I wonder if one could host their photos in Google Drive or Dropbox and share their links publicly...?

Also I should probably post something here too, since we've just moved! I haven't even explored our surroundings yet, so it might be a great adventure...  :D

You CAN share links to your Dropbox and Google drive images. Not sure though if you can also embed it though, never tried it... I usually use my Livejournal scrapbook for that.
