Saturday Reflection

Today is Pyhäinpäivä, All Hallows' Day, when those who have gone before are remembered. Halloween is not a huge deal here in Finland (North) but today is, so here many people go to their relatives' graves and light candles. It is all very beautiful. Now Äiti will light candles on the catio to remember those we miss, including of course the wonderful woman who gave our Rilli, Ruska, Risto and Roosa their first home. We remember our feline companions of course, who were playing wildly over the Bridge in the week. There was a fantastic display of revontulet. This photo was taken from the lake shore and we love the reflection.  Look at those amazing swishing tails, and wiggling bottoms of the manxies!
Äiti took many photos from the back garden. This was above the house, facing the catio and balcony - and you can see we were being vigilant too! Äiti thinks those are Mirksu's ears silhouetted - but we are not telling her if she's right or not. We just know we earthly felines were watching the display too!

Thank you Karin for sharing with us those beautiful pictures. It must be a breathtaking experience to see Aurora Borealis with your own eyes.
