May I present you Miss June in my Weather Girl portrait series. June is the first official summer month in Finland. High hopes is set for June. Like oooh, the warmth will come… and the sun will shine… picnics in the park… chilling outdoors… nature blooming… All of this is possible. But then, it may occur that the temperatures stay quite low and stormy rainy days is a norm.
It is a risky business to arrange an outdoor festival in June. Like last Saturday Helsinki Samba Carnaval had simply awful weather. Still the wet dancers were brave and did their performance in good spirit. And the loyal fan club like me with my daughters stood in the rain and strong wind enjoying the show. Wet and happy.
Capricious is June. Therefor this lady has a bit strict expression. Around her head is a flower wreath, woven with the natural flowers, which nature offers plenty. Birch wood frames the background.

This is already sixth in the Weather Girl portrait series. In Finland we have four main seasons, but even each month has a character of their own. By the end of the year we have all twelve sisters together. Here is a link to the Introduction of Weather Girl Portrait series, if you are interested.
