The end of the world

I just finished Haruki Murakami's fantastic fantasy Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World
In the book he describes so beautifully snow and snowy scenery. So inspired by this Murakami's book I decided to call my white scenery after a heavy snowfall as the end of the world :))

My Clematis Viola climbs here in the summer...

At this stage I'm not so thrilled with snow, but this is how it looked in my garden on Sunday. A few weeks ago we had practically no snow and the grass was green! We Finns have a saying: Kevät keikkuen tulevi. It means that the spring is capricious and comes rocking. This is just that!

Poor Syringa vulgaris!

“Snow floated down every once in a while, but it was frail snow, like a memory fading into the distance.”

“A sheet of white extends to the lone dark vertical of the elm tree in the centre ... It is too perfect, to inviolate ... The snow is graced with waves written by the wind, the elm raises crooked arms in sleeves of white.”

I found a site with more Murakami Quotes if you are interested.

    1. Kiitos, mutta nyt saisi lumi tältä talvelta riittää!
      Pidin tämän postauksen tosiaankin tässä, kun vallan hyvin pystyin kuvittelemaan lauman yksisarvisia lepäilemässä tuolla puutarhassa lumihuntu turkillaan :)


Kiva kun kävit & kiitos kommentista!
