He led me through his gardens fair

On May 24th I walked in Sipoonkorpi, getting somewhat lost. It was a clouded and wet day. There were some fields by the road, and spring was already quite advanced.

Next week we are having midsummer, which reminds of the saying in Finnish: "Kokoo koko kokko kokoon. Koko kokkoko kokoon? Koko kokko kokoon." This is based on words that resemble each other but mean completely different things. Kokko = bonfire. See here for explanation.

(Posting title is from the song How sweet I roam'd from field to field by William Blake.)
