You read my mind, Andrea! I was feeling so happy today about the weather and all the beauty around! It was one of those magical days...

Here, the weather is wonderful too but is very diferent how it feels a great fall day than a spring day.

Jill said...

That's right...you are on the opposite season as us, I forgot! I love fall days too in a very different way from spring.

What a lovely walk...looks as if we are having the same type of day.

Nice walk to school! I recognize these heart shaped flowers we call them "coeurs de marie" it is actually the first time I see them white! thanks to you Jill!

Jill said...

Hi Artycho,
Yeah, it's unusual to see these flowers in white. I like the French name better than the English one, which I think is "bleeding heart". This garden also had white lilacs blooming and the smell was soooo nice, but unfortunately, it doesn't translate to blogging.

Mrs French, I was just looking at the lovely flower pics you had on your blog too! I'm glad your day was lovely too...

Jill said...

Thanks, Esti! I'm looking forward to sharing photos with you when I return.
Line, I like the Norwegian name better than the English too. I'm glad to know it.

In finnish that white flower is "Broken heart", beautiful! I like those pink flowers with the turquoise door, too. Very nice neighbourhood you got!
