Winter is cold but beautiful in Finland
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
My country, Finland, between Russia and Sweden, is a country of the snow and the cold. The birches around our house are now so beautiful. It is attempting to touch the frost on the trees, e.g. The Siberian firs, the Russian crack willows, but I don´t do it. The dream will vanish. I just take photos.
The blue sky is scattered with the snow diamonds in the cold of -20 C of today. Under the snow there are all the summer´s plants and dreams of a new life which makes the natural circuit of a human life, too.
Last winter we lost our cat under the bushes, called Norwegian bushes. We sadly found the cat dead. It has been ”writing” a blog of life several years, still it does it by the name of Rundgren`s Cat. The dream will go on.
The winter makes the living the same for all the people in Finland and in it´s neighbour countries, especially in the North of Europe, Fennoscandia.
