My husband pruned aronia and hydrangea the other day, and I saved a few branches and put them in water. Now they are happily unfolding beautiful baby leaves indoors!

Birds [Daily Photo #384]


These swans expressed zero interest in my food offerings. :(

But this lovely duck came to me even before I showed the food! ^u^
I fed him very well.

Forest Walk [Daily Photo #379]


My Pokemon Go device's tablet's carrier having a walk in the forest.

Judging by its orientation, this conk grew after the tree fell.

Wheat-Free Chocolate Banana Cake [Daily Photo #378]



Today I baked a wheat-free cake for the first time in my life. It was quite an interesting experience! I used this lovely recipe – banana, chocolate, coffee, coconut flour, mmmmm. Additionally I decorated the top with coconut flakes.

Moomin Chocolate Egg [Daily Photo #374]



Holidays like Christmas and Palm Sunday are a great excuse to indulge in eating too many sweets. Today we bought a few chocolate things in case the Easter witches come, and I even got a chocolate egg!

April Moss [Daily Photo #372]



I love watching forests wake up in spring, little by little or in a big explosion of life. First leaves, young pine and fir needles, drowsy bees and flies… Today I took a short walk into the woods and found a boulder covered in moss like a big fluffy hat.

Snowdrops Under Snow [Daily Photo #365]



Wow I've been doing this Daily Photo Challenge for a whole year non-stop! @o@ And I guess Nature wanted to celebrate it, too, with beautiful snow… Yep, just when I thought it was finally spring, more snow fell. I was a naive fool! Spring, right… But at least it created nice photo opportunities. : 3

Ducks Are Back! [Daily Photo #364]



There's still ice and snow in many places, but snowdrops are blooming already and I even heard wood pigeons! And two ducks returned to occupy the first clear patch of lake water.

Snowdrops and Hydrangea [Daily Photo #362]



I finally crawled out of the house this morning to take pictures of the first spring flowers. =D Tiny snowdrops bravely started blooming a few days ago despite snow, and now there's even actual sun! o_O Could it be spring? Don't want to jinx it again...

Reading Next... [Daily Photo #359]



I suddenly caught cold (rare for me but still unpleasant), so spending the night reading and doing nothing else sounds fun. But… how do I choose my next book?!

Too many!

Do You Know These Songs? [Daily Photo #357]


Today our toys discovered a thing called microphone…
Do you know the songs they sang? =D

It comes over my shoulder
Something I've never seen
I'm getting to be a machine”
