Still greenish

Today the sun is shining

and some flowers are still blooming.

 Apple tree has begun to drop its apples. A lot of them came down in the wind of the past few days, and the ground is nearby covered with apples!

Soon it's time put woolen socks on, soft and warm, hand-knitted of course.

More green  here Green Day

I like..



My daughter's new samoyed poppy, Muru ( Sweetie ).
 
Our old samoyeds are in dogs' heaven  and
we are so happy when Muru comes to visit us -
but just for a few days :)
  
Kuutti was our first samoyed
 
Then came Nessi
A year after came Nyytti and Fame.
 
When our children were young and still at home, we had four samoyeds.
We also had a sleigh for the dogs. The children were sitting on the sleigh and the dogs pulled.
They were great with children and gentle with even the youngest children. But they were really  poor guard dogs.

It was a dark and stormy night....




the rain fell in torrents...
and the lights went off...
but I had to find out who was the murderer
and what happened to Vladlena
In the morning I went to my garden to see what damage
 the storm had caused.
The lawn was full of pine needles and leaves
but nothing serious had happened and
some flowers are still trying to bloom.

Rethymnon and Fortezza







I spent two lovely, warm weeks in Crete, in Rethymnon and surrounding areas.
 Fortezza, the Venetian fortress in Rethymnon is one of the best-preserved castles in Crete.
