I am in Helsinki on my way back to Italy. I love this city, and it has turned on some gorgeous weather for me.
There was horizontal sleet for my arrival and walk to the hotel, but that soon gave way to glorious sunshine and bright blue sky.
The beautiful Tuomiokirkko shone brightly in the sun.
The gold on the Russian church positively sparkled.
The stone men at the station have been cleaned and polished.
The naked blacksmiths are still hard at work.
Birds are patiently waiting for spring.
My favourite moose is on the lookout for spring too.
It can’t be far away.
I will be back in Bagni di Lucca soon…in time to plant my pansies.
