A walk with mallards

Went for a walk in the park, as did a couple of mallards with their youth. It’s really warm, 28°C. I’m glad the city has left some lawns unmowed, as it is good for wildlife.

Guarden guests

Yesterday evening, a little guest appeared in my garden. The hedgehog, or one of its specimen, visits my small garden every summer, looking for snails or other small crawlies for supper. This time it didn’t seem to mind me as much as it has previous years, I hope it isn’t out of desperation for food […]


So I’ve spent the last two weekends in the Finnish archipelago. The first, celebrating midsummer, at two different cottages of my friends. The second camping at our fraternity’s island. Both lovely weekends with a lot of swimming, sauna, good food and greater company.
