Voglia di verde.

(English text at the bottom of post).betu (5)cc

Un’usanza finlandese ampiamente praticata dagli amanti dei giardini e del verde,  consiste nel portare in casa alcuni rametti di betulla per farli germogliare anzitempo al calduccio:  in un paio di settimane i rametti apriranno le loro gemme e spunteranno le foglioline.  Un angolo verde autentico mentre fuori si sta ancora sciogliendo l’ultima neve… Di solito si fa a fine Marzo.

Longing for some green.    

In spring,  Finnish people who love garden and green,  can carry in a few branches of birch to force the opening of the small leaves in the warmth of the home.   To us it took about two weeks,  last year,  but we enjoyed a green corner while outside the last snow was still melting…it was the end of March when we cut them.
