But the spirit of this place just the same

Here are some autumn colors, from the garden outside the house.

Yesterday I had a walk at Torronsuo swamp, the biggest swamp in southern Finland. I also visited the old quarry at Härksaari, south of the swamp. It was a rainy day, but the rain was light enough and didn't bother much.

The youngest daughter got a stomach sickness the day before yesterday, but she recovered fast, and was able to take part in the walk. She is very keen on rocks, and we digged for interesting rocks at the quarry.
