February = Helmikuu

so here we are, at the top of another month. time is flying by.

this month (february) is called helmikuu in finnish. 'helmi' means 'pearl'. this refers to the ice on the snow and tree branches that form when things temporarily melt during warm spells and then re-freeze. of course its a perfectly suited description of the weather and scenery this month.
