Pretty abstract this morning, looking out of the bedroom window! Had to rub my sleepy eyes a few times as, last night, we’d gone to bed with greenish grass, spotted with blue scilla that have been in bloom for about a week. And now this! Back to black & white. Darn Finnish weather – you must be joking! The only good thing about this is that it gave me a picture for this week’s photo challenge.
Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
But all good things, they say, never last
I actually pinched the title for this post from the recently passed away iconic star, Prince and his song by the same name. Maybe this weather is his last good-bye to earth, from the edge of a cloud.
Well, at least there was humour in my Facebook feed all through the day. I guess that’s the best way to deal with this misery. “Finnish spring – so near and yet so far away.” read the status of one friend. “Finnish summer is short but not very snowy.” joked another. “In April we celebrate this holiday called ‘Spring is cancelled’ in Finland.” “Finnish spring – or spring finished?” “Have to start skating to school.” was a remark from a colleague.

I live in Canada – I can relate! 🙂

I can imagine! Just briefly visited Canada years ago, to see Niagara Falls and Toronto but I have heard and weather- and nature-wise it’s very close to Finland.

We don’t have snow in my side of the world, so having snow (but not for long) would definitely be a treat, especially that it is too humid here now.

Thank you so much for your comment! I checked your blog. You’re in the Philippines, right? It’s quite human to be attracted by something totally different from what you are used to, isn’t it? I’m sure you’d be thrilled by the first sight of snow, and the feeling of the crisp, dry, cold winter air. But believe me, when you’ve had it for about 6 months a year all through your life, the colourlessness of it all can get quite depressing at times, too. I’d love to see the Philippines, looks so colourful there! Incidentally, my daughter just spent a week on Siargao island last month. She is teaching in Taiwan at the moment.
