  4. Lehmien näkeminen saa aina lämpimän läikähdyksen sydämessäni. Johtunee siitä, että olen karjatilalla syntynyt ja vasikoita hoidellut.

  6. Gunilla, I love your second shot of Wood Horsetail. Beautiful in its simplicity. Your marsh marigold is very similar in flower to a buttercup. I love seeing the native wildflowers from each country. I must show you some of ours.

  37. Your cattle are special. That wood horsetail is much fancier and more colorful than the ones that grow in my yard. I remember Marsh Marigolds from long ago. The blackbird on the nest is cute, now that it is cold I enjoy the warm photos to look forward to next year.
