Helsinki In An Autumn Mood

Pictures from a walk around Helsinki almost exactly a year ago.

Right now, the city is preparing for autumn – the days getting shorter and chillier, leaves starting to fall. Soon, they’ll be red like in these photos…

The chill in the air tells you that summer is definitely over, but there are still beautifully crisp sunny days to enjoy, amongst the rainy ones.

Syyskuu is Finnish for September. Literally, it translates to “autumn month”, or rather “autumn moon”. It’s time for autumn now!

  1. Oh, yes, beautiful images. ❀ Today it was fresh in the morning here too, for the first time in ages. Interesting to know about your September. I've just been putting together my last year's, will post soon. I hope you catch the last warmth.

    • I love autumn too. There’s a certain exciting atmosphere, something in the air that feels like a fresh start. But I would happily swap it for warm summers since it’s pretty chilly here all year round. I miss being able to wear summer clothes and do summery things like swimming or reading a book outdoors. After autumn we’ll get another very long, harsh winter. But lets enjoy it while we can! Thanks for stopping by! 😊

  2. It seems strange to say, but our weather after Hurricane Harvey finally moved on is the most beautiful I’ve seen here in Houston. I feel almost guilty enjoying it so much when I have so many friends who are still either underwater (yes, parts of town are STILL submerged!) or digging out of their mess. We help when and where we can, but life has returned to near normal for many of us. Hope life is also starting to feel normal there with those new babies!

  3. I love the photos with the red leaves. Thanks for sharing! I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and today’s poem is about autumn in case you have time to look? Sunny greetings, Sam πŸ™‚
