This time of the year is absolutely wonderful. I love the sunny days best and for the 1st May we got the most perfect weather imaginable, sunny, warm and almost no wind. Since it's a holiday it demanded dressing up a little! That wig is a bday gift from the ever so awesome Mr Tea and it immediately became my favourite. :3

Then for some early summer feels. The weather has been beautiful for a week and by beautiful I mean the kind that Finns describe as "the weather's like a bride". It makes me want to take photos of everything, no matter how mundane, so here goes - have a little taste of ordinary life. :D
Some creative parking near Kólaportið.
Mountains far away. You can tell by the blue tone that they're actually much further than the photo would make you believe.
There's an Icelandic proverb that states "the farther the mountains the bluer they are". On its own it's a fact, but actually the proverb means "the further away from home you are the more beautiful it looks".
Oooh what's this?
Apparently her name is Hafsúlan.
Then for some crocuses because crocuses are magical. They're also bad-ass. You can freeze them stiff and they'll not care, you can freeze the ground they grow on and they'll just shrug. It can snow on them and they're unfazed.
It's dangerous to go alone. Take this!
Other plants in the garden are also showing signs of waking up. :3
These here are narcissus. They've been planted haphazardly all over the lawn on the side of the house, apparently at my SO's suggestion. It looks really charming when they bloom!
And here we have a part of my 1st May picnic meal! In Finland I would be going to Ullanlinnanmäki for the annual Vappu picnic but even if I can't there's nothing that can keep me from feasting on yummies to welcome the summer. :3
