Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant

It’s been a while since I’ve been inspired to take part in one of these challenges. Here goes for the Vibrant theme:

Winter turns to spring

Winter turns to spring..

This time of year is fabulous, as the short dark winter days of November and December stretch into shiny spring days. Blue skies, sparkling snow, elongated sunrises and brilliant sunsets add more than a little zing into everyone’s day.

Spring means asparagus, ham, hollandaise sauce!

Ironically enough…

… today we officially commenced summer time and as many pointed out so gleefully earlier this week: it’s spring! Forgive me if I don’t share your enthusiasm at this point.

Helsinki Spring 2012

The above was the view at 0930 this morning. The lovely thing about spring snow is that it covers the emerging piles of dog-doo and other debris that has been buried for three months or more. The not-so-lovely part of spring snow here in the south of Finland is that it is often short-lived and melts to dirty slush in a matter of hours.

So, of course here we go with Alanis Morissette and Ironic. I’d totally forgotten how this clip looked. Now, is that ironic or what?!
