Autumn moments to remember

This autumn has really been the complete opposite of summer. We had only few sunny days and it was cold and rainy.
But this autumn, the first time since I came here, has been so sunny and beautiful. The colors are so amazing and everything is like a masterpiece of art, awesome in colors and light.



The melancholy of autumn




I really hope there are still many sunny days to come

Don’t miss the moment

Today was one of the days. I had the choice, to stay lazy or – go out with the kids. I decided to go out and I loved it, even it was only behind our house, everything was wet and we stayed only shortly.

But we found a dead rabbit and a tray with a cup! 🙂


I wonder how often we miss those little moments just because we are too lazy?

Autumn forest in middle Finland

It was the time of year again! Our annual autumn forest trip was today. Looking at older posts, I saw I had posted none of our last year’s trip.

Well, not missing it this year. I was very beautiful, as usual. We were blessed with a beautiful weather, it was not too cold.

The sun was shining lightly through the clouds and gave everything a smooth feeling and look

The leaves were so beautifully colored

and there was a small lake with little fishies

And a sort of ski jump right into the water

Looks bit steep from above

I have always wondered, what is it like to jump in there. Never seen people doing it, but what else could it be for…

It was such a nice trip, I hope next year we will go again!

Inshaa Allah

Hi everybody!

A blessed monday to you all, this is a shot from an autumn forest, it was taken last year, and I just fell in love with the vintage style, so I made a vintage forest background of it. Great use in web design with blurred backgrounds in an autumn theme!

The vintage autumn background is a jpeg file, resolution 4000 * 3000 px and about 6MB in size.

A nice autumn week to everyone!

Frozen rustle

One day it happens, you take the first step outside and you can smell that it was freezing in the night. For me its somehow always the beginning of the winter, no idea how meteorologists see this, but that really doesn’t matter.

I love sunrays on these frozen leaves. And the sound when you walk on it. Here it has been so rainy in the autumn that you couldn’t listen to the rustling.

And how many people pass them by, not paying any attention to this, chasing their lost time which they never catch up…

Thanks to God Who has given me this blessing to stop for a moment and listen to the sound of it…

I love autumn!

Autumn is the most beautiful season for me. Despite the ongoing drops falling from the sky which does not seem to have an end. Despite the grey sky which seems to go to horizon and beoynd. Autumn has so many beautiful things.

The smell of apples! The colorful leaves covering everything, the scent of autumn foliage….

The most beautiful thing is, that autumn is a reminder, that everything on earth come to an end one day, and nobody can delay his appointed time. And that death is not something to be frightened of, rather a possibility, a new beginning of something which human on earth cannot imagine.
