I already posted one post about Mustion Linna , Mustio Manor, last time a falsely named it Mustio castle 🙂 The old trees in the garden are so lovely.

No travel in sight, so I am going to post photos of lovely places I have visited. I will keep it simple, lots of posts, less words is the theme in these posts.

Visiting Villa San Michele in Capri , looking at the long pergola and the that garden begins in the shade of the wisteria of the pergola, culminates bathed in sunlight on the Sphinx terrace and finds its end along an elegant avenue of cypresses. Every season has its flowers and scents of camellias, tree peonies, hydrangeas, vines and orange blossom.

Sphinx
The sphinx at Villa San Michele is approximately 3200 years old. It comes from Egypt and is carved in red granite.

I love the sea, beaches, forests, mountains, countryside and lovely cities and the people in them. Colors; blue, green, red, white, yellows and what ever you can find around you. I love beauty and these photos remind me of beauty I have seen.

Welcome to my travels, some of them you might seen before…well, that’s life! Let’s go with the flow…

Visiting Villa San Michele in Capri , looking at Hermes

Where the sculpture loggia ends and the long pergola begins stands a bronze statue that somehow marks the transition between indoors and out of doors. It represents the messenger of the gods, Hermes, sitting at rest. The small wings on the sides of his feet are folded. The sculpture is a turn of the 19th century copy of an antique original which was excavated in Herculaneum and now stands in the Archaeological Museum in Naples. This work of art was a gift to Munthe from the City of Naples in recognition of his relief work during the cholera epidemic 1884-85. (text: villasanmichele.eu/collection)

Oriental Bittersweet

These are some of the colors we still have in our backyard at home, orange, yellow, brown and green. In this post it is about Oriental Bittersweet that grows on our fence. What is left on it at the moment is orange color in the form of berries. Earlier in the autumn it was vivid yellow with yellow berries that now at the end of October have turned orange.

Garden flowers

I took some photos from my garden, but mostly I have revisited my photos from Amalfi coast as I have such urge to a travel , well nearly anywhere 🙂

CB&W Garden ornament

I thought this was impossible one for me as I usually do not take photos of garden ornaments, but yesterday at Wohls Gård in Kirkkonummi, there was this one in the back of the house. Convenient!

January 28

Imagine a historic Italian estate in a spectacular subtropical setting and you’ll begin to imagine Vizcaya! Built as the private winter home of American businessman James Deering in the early 1900s. Sneak peek of this gorgeous place.

Garden

Heinola bird garden

Heinola bird garden was established in 1963. Heinola Town Supervisor,  Anthony Bosley donated a variety of parrots to the city, and the bird nursery started. Over the years the business has expanded. Bird nursery’s mission is to take care of injured wild birds and return them to  back to the nature after recovery. About 300 birds have been treated so far, but the number of lives all the time. The annual number of treated birds is approximately 200 – 250 individuals, of which about 30-40% can be returned back to the wild.

The main causes of injuries are, traffic, power lines and various types of large glass surfaces. These birds that wont survive  in the wild, but are able to live independently at the shelter, remain in the nursery. . Many species, such as owls are difficult to spot in the wild

Here are few pictures I was able to take there,,,
