AMONG THE LILACS



I fixed a little something among the lilacs in front of the house in the countryside!


A well hidden little sitting place!

There used to be a swing before, but no one sat there as the lilac trees were over grown and it was hard to reach. I cut away lots and lots and lots of branches and dug up some treelets (<- new word for tiny trees!) that were in the way plus cleared the ground of weeds. We moved the swing to a better spot; under the apple trees on the other side of the house.








Turned out a good place for morning coffee or just random day dreaming together with the cats.

What a pretty little nook, I'm feeling rather envious here in my no-garden flat.

So idyllic!

Looks lovely, I envy the sunshine. Swings should ALWAYS be under apple trees. Any other tree is just not right:)

So beautiful! I grew up with lilacs all around me, but where I live now, the climate isn't right for them. I miss them! :(

I love that your cats go to the countryside with you! Mine is too scared to set foot outside the door!

I just love this littel hidden place sorrounded by all those lilacs. The chairs and the table are absolutely adorable. It's like a scene out of a romantic novel. Finnland must be dreamlike in summer, isn't it?

Miss Rayne : Yes!!

Jen : they like it there. And I have to take them, I wouldn't leave them alone for longer than a day... They are afraid out in the city as it's noisy, but it's so quite in the countryside.

Mademoiselle Maladroite : depends on where you are :) But yes, most evenings and early nights are rather dreamlike due to the light, you know, it just doesn't get dark at all...

Anonyymi : ei, ne pysyy tosi hyvin pihalla. Seuraavat mua jos kävelen muualle, Mutta otan ne aina sisään yöski. Alussa tarkkailin niitä enemmän ja hain ne pois jos ne menivät liian kauas. Nyt ne saavat ihan vapaast liikkua, mutta pysyvät aina lähelle taloa!

Aino : Haha, totta :D

Ylva : and for sitting with the pram and a sleeping baby too, I think :)
