March = Maaliskuu

welcome to march (maaliskuu in finnish)!

for this month there is actually no direct translation of 'maalis' , but the word 'maa' means earth or ground. in march the snow first starts to melt and the dirt/earth peeks out again. and as with the other two months this year, march is aptly named. we have been melting around here and the moss is pretty vibrant against the remaining snow and grey boulders. spring is in the air... :)

The angle of the sun says spring to me. Nonetheless, it's hard to celebrate in a deep freeze. But this weekend is predicted to be mid-30s ( bliss).
