I’ve been wanting to visit Little Sparta ever since I first heard about this “secret” garden, but since you can’t reach it with public transport and we don’t drive (yet) it took me until now! Yesterday Matthew’s dad who’s also wanted to visit for a long time came with us, so we all got into his car and drove Southwest through beautiful hilly sceneries for about an hour.
After work on the Friday after Lana’s birthday 9 of us got into two cars and started driving towards England and the Lake District. It was a bit of an spontaneous trip as we only started planning it two weeks before, but so glad we all got our sh*t together an made it happen because it was so much fun!
Before I start watching the new Gilmore Girls (so excited) I wanted to come here and dump a bunch of photos on you! Last Tuesday I felt like I wanted to do something new with Lana but was a bit tired from the night before and didn’t have the energy to travel very far. The perfect solution were the Glasshouses at the Botanics that I’ve been wanting to visit for ages!
As always, time went extremely fast and our Finland holiday has come to an end. There’s always a lot of mixed feelings involved as I obviously miss Matthew and having our little family intact but feel so at home here in Finland with my family here that I wouldn’t mind staying for longer. Both Lana and I are very comfortable here and she’s enjoying spending time with her mommo and mofa – although she insists on calling them both mommo (granny) 🙂
I took my camera with me on our walk the other day, thinking I’d probably not use it anyway as nature is pretty bleak and dead at the moment – but I ended up taking quite a few photos! This is definitely not my favourite time of year, but I guess there is beauty in all this greyness too. Rugged beauty. I still hope there will be snow very soon – and I think that’s what mother nature is waiting for too.
I already decided that I wouldn’t contribute to the vast amount of autumnal photos out there, and have tried not to take too many pictures of yellow leaves – but then we went to the Botanics yesterday and it was such a beautiful day that I just had to take a few photos…Autumn is so my favourite season!
The lovely Bosgård Farm is run by two of my friends and located around 10 kilometres from Porvoo. I’ve visited for a pool party a couple of times, but haven’t had lunch at the restaurant or walked around the grounds before. So, a sunny Wednesday a few weeks ago was the perfect day to finally pay the farm a visit!
