OFFICIAL Card - Finland

When I received this card last week, we still hadn't had out first snowfall. It was unseasonably warm for November and early December and we did see rain, lots of rain, but no snow. Helena from Jyvaskyla, Finland sent me this pretty card produced by the Calligraphy Society of Finland.

The poem reads as follows - " Autumn is short. And Spring comes late. Frosts in early Summer are a widespread hazard. It is not surprising that Finland is sometimes known as the Land of 3 winters. Autumn, Winter, high Winter and Spring Winter." Certainly put a smile on my face.
