Rays of sunshine

Back to reality!
Today, after nights and days of snow and cold weather,
finally the sun was shining.
 I couldn't miss my observing tour in my garden with my camera. 
As you can see,
it's promising and giving hope -Spring is on its way!
 
 
 


 
   Today i want to give my special thanks to Silvia for presenting my blog within her Linky Party. 
 I suggest to have a look at her lovely blog Ma Petite Maison
 
Thanks to all my new followers and beautiful comments,
 from now on it's possible to become CasaKoivu's Follower here and directly from the site.
 
Have a nice week!

White petals

If yesterday
i was wearing green leaf contact lenses,
today i see only white petals.
The weather is still very winter-like but let's try to melt the snow and ice 
with these last season pictures from my garden.

 
Special thanks to Cristina and Laura, my new blogger friends from Un fiore di Crilà. I have been awarded the Versatile Blogger award from them! Such a lovely gesture, made me very happy!
Grazie mille Cristina e Laura!
 
 

 
 
 
Con questo post partecipo al Linky Party White Magic Friday by La gatta sul tetto

 
Have a nice weekend!

Green leaves

It's not yet time
to leave at home wool socks and jackets
since today it's snowing again, but surely a moment to dream of what is to come.
 
These pictures were taken during March the last few years from my garden.
Have a wonderful fantasy journey!

Simple and genuine


 Nothing beats the fresh, home-baked bread
and its fragrance, so delicious and cozy...like old times.
Lately i'm trying to pay more attention
what i eat and where the food comes from: the simpler the better and the closer the better.

 

 
This bread was made with
water
natural sea salt
bio spelt flour
dry yeast
bio butter
honey
mix of organic seeds(sesamo, sunflower, brown flax) 
 
 I always use my random eye but if somebody is interested i may write precise recipe:)
 
Buon Appetito!

Hyvää Ystävänpäivää! Happy Valentine's day!

In Finland 
Valentine's day is also celebrated
 as a friend's day besides a day for the loved ones.
Today is truly a day
 to pick up a lovely and memorable friendship poem and the song...   
 
 
 
''Ystävyys on kuin pikkuinen ukko
jolla on taskussa avain ja lukko.
Sillä se sitoo ystävät yhteen
niin kuin maamies pellolla lyhteen.''
 
 

Ystävän Laulu 
(click to listen)

Mistä tunnet sä ystävän
Onko oikea sulle hän
Anna meren se selvittää
Kuka viereesi jää
Ja jos silloin kun myrsky soi
Vain sun kumppanis vaikeroi
Vene lähimpään rantaan vie
Jääköön pois mikä lie

Mistä tunnet sä ystävän
Onko oikea sulle hän
Anna tunturin selvittää
Kuka viereesi jää
Kun on kaukana kaikki muu
Ja kun päättyvät pitkospuut
Kuka rinnallas ruikuttaa
Takaisin mennä saa

Mistä tunnet sä ystävän
Onko oikea sulle hän
Ajat ankeimmat selvittää
Kuka viereesi jää
Kun on sinulla vaikeaa
Ja kun tarvitset auttajaa
Silloin ystävyys punnitaan
Menee muut menojaan
Siitä tunnet sä ystävän
Kun on vierelläs vielä hän
Turhat tuttavat luotas ois
Hävinneet pian pois


-Vladimir Visotsky-
 (suomenkielinen käännös Juha Vainio)
