And brittle leaves that touch and die and suffer

Here are some more photographs taken a week ago in Vaakkoi. During this weekend I went there twice, on Saturday with my youngest daughter, who likes blueberries, and on Sunday with two daughters, to eat blueberries and to have a look at the scenery. It has been so dry in Vaakkoi that there are no mosquitoes to bother during the walks, but some of the smaller trees and many of the smaller plants suffer from the dry season. But near the lakes there is still plenty of water for plants.
