About Saara...

Päivää taloon! I´m 32-year-old horticulturist. Keen on nature, traveling, rock, summer, creative people & my chicken. I love walking in the near by forest, picking wild berries and mushroom; having little bicycle trips. Observing plants and bugs and bigger creatures. Nature is near to me, because I nowadays live in my own red wooden house in countryside with only few neighbors. There are no tourist cards of my little village, but if you see a typical coniferous forest or lake scene from Finland, that could be from ours. :) My profession and hobbies include gardening. I like reading and movies too and doing medal graphic sometimes.

I have a parson russell terrier Musti 7,5years and irish wolfhound Telma 3,5years and two of her pups. You can see the dogs in my blog at I like a lot going out with dogs and taking photos. I carry my camera all the time. Santa claus gave me a fish eye lens that I´m learning to use. I´m trying to capture night sky, halos, northern lights, iridium flares... Animals are harder to catch than flowers. Try to chase a dragonfly into a picture!

I especially like cards about nature, cards with natural views, landscapes, botanical gardens, parks, national parks, UNESCO sites, native plants or animals or fungi. I also love stamps & maxicards. (And collect them and match box labels too.)

I´d be delighted also about old time fairytale creatures (children book illustrations?). My super favorite is ´Punahilkka´ Little Red Riding Hood, Rotkäppchen, roodkapje, le Petit chaperon rouge, Krasnaya shapochka, Rödluvan, Cappuccetto rosso, Czerwony kapturek, Kipa aduma, Cervena Karkulka.
I also like cards of the dog breeds I own (russell terrier, jämthund, irish wolfhound) specially in black&white. Photography of stray dogs or dogs with people can be cool too.

Let´s go fishing, fishing is fun!
