Photo-A-Day: June 7th 2017

At the weekend we took a different route to walk to the shop. The way we normally go is pretty much all along a main road. The back way we took on this occasion was much greener. Whilst we were walking we spotted a couple of squirrels playing together.

I can’t quite believe that it’s been ten days since I last did a photo post. So much for daily posting! You’d think I hadn’t had any pictures to post, but this one was taken about that long ago, and I do have a couple of others to use for the next couple of posts.

It’s getting beautifully springlike here in Finland. Or at least in our part of it. The last few days have been lovely. Warm and sunny. Flowers are starting to grow. The grass is turning greener. And buds are appearing here, there and everywhere.

I’m not sure whether the inner part of this tree is cracking through the bark, or whether the outer bark is gradually engulfing the inner portion. Either way I thought it looked interesting, and I managed to snap a picture in the split second during which no children were visible in the frame of view. Thing…

As well as the screech of gulls (which seems like a very appropriate collective noun) that we encountered the other day there were quite a few other birds out and about. The one pictured being one of them. I suspected at the time that they were foraging, either for nest building materials or for food.

This morning we again walked past the area where there were so many seagulls yesterday. And there were quite a bunch of them today too. Not quite as many, but still several. I’m not quite sure what is suddenly so appealing about that patch of grass that they’ve all decided to flock around there.
