Early Sunday morning I am trying to photograph rain, but we only have misty rain. I am trying to look for signs of rain when I find this Fungi village 🙂 It shows signs of rain as I find rain on the grass the fungi hats.
This is Cladonia (cup lichen) it is a genus of moss-like lichen.
I always enjoy the finds of nature around these bolt on my backyard fence. I took these today as we had a a moment of light much to my surprise.
After my walk, first taking in the beautiful fall colors on the ” big”road, to enter the small roads between spruce forest, I arrived to this lovely lake view. It was a glorious October morning, all quiet and still. This were my first shots as I came to my destination – a peaceful moment by the lake.

The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I’ve seen that road before
It always leads me here
November morning in Vols, Kirkkonummi. I found these cut tree trunks that were hollow inside covered with moss. set against the browns leaves of November, they looked lovely with the beautiful green moss on them
The autumn has reached the point that this weekend we closed our summer home for this year. What a beautiful weekend it was, sunshine and nice temperatures. the sunset was amazing in its glory( an other post ) I took time to walk in the fields and document the colors.
Tamminiemi (Villa Ekudden in Swedish), is a villa located in the Meilahti district of Helsinki. It was one of the official residences of the President of Finland from 1940 until 1981. From that date, until his death, it served as the residence of President Urho Kekkonen. It is now the Urho Kekkonen Museum. It is located in a park by the sea. Tamminiemi’s floor area is about 450 square metres. Designed by architects Sigurd Frosterus and Gustaf Strengell, the jugendstil villa was built in 1903 for the Danish-born businessman Jörgen Nissen. The villa was later owned or rented by a number of individuals, before being acquired by the publisher and artistic patron Amos Anderson in 1924. Anderson donated Tamminiemi to the Finnish State in 1940, to serve as a presidential residence. Although Presidents Ryti and Mannerheim resided at Tamminiemi, the villa is particularly associated with President Kekkonen – due in large part to the fact that it was his home for around thirty years.
