kivinokka II.

below are a few more photographs from our sunday spent around Siirtolapuutarha and Kivinokka. not too far from the cottages and their gardens there is a place where we hadn't been before: more little houses lay closer to one another in the forest.

on that rock overlooking the sea Jacopo and I had our first picnic of the season: riisipiirakat and a big kanelipulla each. unfortunately the wind was still a little cold that day and we couldn't stay long but I am sure there will be more picnics now that summer is finally approaching.
I hope your weekend has been lovely!

    I'm envious of your picnic with that delicious food. We need to start doing some around here, too. It's been so incredibly hot!

    1. I'm sure it's going to be lovely! and you should definitely start doing more picnics too - does it ever get cold there anyway? I thought it was always warm!

  3. These cottages look so romantic!

    My mother and grandmother came from Karelia, and these riisipiirakat are also from there. My grandmother used to bake them often when I was kid, and these home made ones were SO good!

    1. I love cottages and I wish I owned one too! I have tasted home-made riisipiirakat just once and they were delicious, I bet your mother and grandmother's one must have been great. I wish I could learn how to bake them at home!
