Seasons of Finland 芬蘭四季

 Spring

In Spring, variety of known or unknown wildflowers grow up, Dandelion is one of significant one, Lupin is another beautiful but powerful alien species. The weather is still unstable, rainy with sometimes sunshine and even hail. When walking, be careful the muddy ground due to melting snow.

春天,各種知名或不知名的野花紛紛冒出頭來,最令人無法忽視的是龐大的蒲公英族群,以及美麗但強勢的外來種魯冰花。此時的氣候仍不穩,晴時多雨偶冰雹,行走時小心地上雪化的泥濘。








1st of May is Labour Day, called Vappua in Finland, can be seen as national drinking day. After long winter, Vappua mean the spring/summer is coming, it is indeed a good reason to celebrate! Students and everyone wear white hats and drink for celebrating, a special ceremony always holds is helping statue to wear hats as well, and new students go into the water!
This day was my first time to see so many people on the street since I came to Finland. It was interesting to see this special ceremony.

五月1日的Vappua,芬蘭勞工節,是個全芬蘭都會盛大慶祝的節日之一;過了這天,代表著漫長冬季結束,春夏季節正式到來,怎能不歡欣鼓舞呢!而對於學生族群也別具意義,特別儀式通常在前一天之四月底,每個人戴上白帽子(高中畢業都會有),手拿酒精性飲料,群聚於港口邊"波羅的海女兒"雕像旁,準備幫雕像也帶上白帽子,隨後大家盡情喝酒慶祝,這天也是我第一次在芬蘭街頭看到那麼多的人~~~
雕像戴白帽,新生水中泡;這都是儀式內容。這不巧今年天氣沒有像往年的晴天,而是有點陰涼;看著泡水渾身濕透的學生們,自己都冷起來了~~ :P 但還是澆不熄青春熱火,甚至還有更多的人衝下水去一起同樂。





Students were lifted in order to wear the statue hat & passionate students who rushed into the water.
被吊起以便幫雕像戴帽子的學生群&衝下水的熱血學子們






Happy people drank in the pool~
有人全身防寒裝,顯然是有備而來;好整以暇的泡在水裡就喝了起來!



Summer

Whenever the wind, lots of dandelion's seeds flutter in the sky, look like snowing.
每當風起,漫天的蒲公英種子像極了另類下雪‧夏雪。





The short and lovely summer time can't be use just in offices or schools for sure, Finns usually have holidays during summer. People maybe go to summer cottages, to travel, or join many activities.

短暫又美好的夏日時光當然不能浪費在辦公事或學校裡,因此芬蘭人在夏天總是會有個為期幾週到一兩個月的長假,利用假期去夏日小屋發呆或出國旅遊,或參加各式各樣自己想體驗學習的活動。



To Rent a land and plant some plants, that is a good activity during summer.
芬蘭人喜愛租一塊地,利用閒暇之餘種植各種作物;夏天是個耕耘的季節。



In this season, forests show variety green, people enjoy to spend time in forests, pick berries, swim in lakes and so on. I swam in 5-6 lakes of Finland during this summer, despite of sizes and depths were different, they were same natural and comfortable.

森林則展現出各種深淺不一的綠,大大小小的林中湖畔則是人們戲水消暑的好去處。這個夏天我前後游過了五六處湖泊,大小不一、深淺不一,除了其中一個有專門圍起來供孩童戲水的範圍,其他都是無任何設備,就這樣自然的座落在一個個的森林深處。游累了,林中許多陸續成熟的莓果則是最棒的補充品。可以就這樣閒適的度過一天,晚上縱使十點回家,也還是有天光照亮各處,這時的太陽勤勞得很~~

Dwellers of Forests 夏天的森林,生意盎然!





Autumn

Red, orange, yellow and green are the components of leaves, their brilliant is like the God knocked over his paints accidentally, the world suddenly become colorful. At the same time, mushrooms appear in the forests gradually (Finland。Vihti。Mushroom picking 採菇初體驗). People always can find some surprises when visit forests. In Finland, the relationship between human and nature is very close.

紅橙黃綠的各色樹葉與落葉組合成秋天特有的燦爛色彩,像是上帝不小心打翻了祂的顏料,世界頓時變得美不勝收。與此同時,森林提供的新產品也悄悄上市了;不管是自己呼朋引伴或是參加單位團體的活動,總是要找個時間去森林逛逛,採摘正新鮮的菇類來加菜(Finland。Vihti。Mushroom picking 採菇初體驗)。森林是人類的衣食父母,在與自然關係密切的芬蘭更可以體會到這一點。





Fruitful apple trees everywhere 秋收--隨處可見結實纍纍之蘋果樹

Winter



 In winter, everything is tranquil. November is notorious dark months of a year. In terms of 2014, there was only 13 hours sunny during whole of November, most of days were dark and cloudy, was like to live in the room without window; it was easier to feel depression under this weather. Therefore, the Finnish word for November, is "Marraskuu", means "Death moon".

冬季,一切歸於沉靜。十一月是臭名昭彰的黑暗月,以今年來說,整個十一月只見到陽光13小時,每天暗沉烏黑的像住在沒有窗戶的房間,有時會有心靈窒息之感,也難怪芬蘭文的十一月叫Marraskuu,意思是"死亡之月",通常這月的自殺率會提高。但好在我這個月課程挺忙,沒空憂鬱 :-P

4-5pm beside the library of Viikki, looked like midnight~
傍晚四五點的學校圖書館旁,看起來像是午夜的場景



From December, it perhaps start to snow frequently. If so, then everyone are happy whether adults or children. The snow can not only makes world brighter, but also get people to enjoy the winter activities.

十二月之後,天空開始頻繁降雪,大地換上雪白新裝讓大人小孩都很開心,一來白雪反光使得天地間陡增光亮,二來自家的冬季運動用具終於可以派上用場了;滑雪板、雪橇、冰釣工具等紛紛出籠,每個人都玩得不亦樂乎。



To stand between sky and earth covered with snow, I feel dreamy. Think back when I was young, collected many cards /postcards, most of which were such scenes. And now, I am really in this picture, it is really incredible ~

站在覆滿白雪的天地間,一切都感覺如夢似幻;遙想小時後收集過的卡片或明信片,很多都是這樣的景色。而現在自己真的身處在此畫面,想想真是不可思議~




I made this snowman few days ago, it was -12. My finger almost froze although I used heater sometimes. When my Finns roommate was home, she told me the better temperature to make snowman should be -2 ~ 0.... :-P

某天零下12度時跑出去堆的雪人,堆一半還須跑回公寓吹暖氣才能繼續,儘管帶著手套,但還是感覺手指皆已麻木。當天芬蘭室友下班後秀雪人給她看,結果她說,-2 ~ 0度才是最佳堆雪人的溫度.....
