Gerbera's Dream

Why hello hello. It's been a while, but things are calming down now and I've actually had time to do some knitting this past week. Goodie. However, for my return I want to show off photos of flowers, not knitting.


For the first week of June, citizens of Turku were able to enjoy a sea of flowers by the Turku Cathedral. This piece of environmental art, Gerbera's Dream by Kaisa Salmi, was a fantastic start for the summer season. It consisted of a hundred thousand Gerberas, in more different colours than I have ever seen.


As you can see, I even managed to drag Mr Morrgan over to enjoy the colours on this beautiful, sunny day.


There were many paths to follow through the flowers, with benches here and there to sit down on and enjoy a moment of peace. It was almost enough to forget I was in the middle of a city.

If only there was something like this to enjoy all summer!
