Filling each mouth with envy, or with praise

The photographs were taken at Tremanskärr on June 12th.

Today was a dry day, even though there were still some puddles on the road in the morning. The month of June has been rainy. There has been 140 mm of rain, which is more than ever measured in Helsinki (the recorded history starts from the year 1845). And the beginning of June was rather dry.

Quicker than smoke, to the wrong idea

The photographs were taken at Tremanskärr on June 12th.

Today was a rainy day, but it didn't rain when I commuted by bicycle. For tomorrow the forecast promises more rain, and I don't expect to be as lucky as today.

Now learn uncertain areas of pain

The photographs were taken at Tremanskärr on June 12th.

Yesterday we visited Korkeasaari Zoo, late in the afternoon. The tiger was active, making noisy contact with the audience.
