Seasons. Happy Women's Day 8.3.


 Hi sisters! I wish you all Happy Women's Day with this bouquet of mimosas. Around Finland Women's Day have never been a big celebration but in Russia things are different. In Russia Women's Day is a public holiday. I traveled once to Kostamus, Russia, during Women's Day. And everywhere you turned your eyes there were mimosas. Beautiful yellow mimosas. And men are giving those lovely springlike mimosas to their women.

By the way in Finland women received their full government rights in 1906. First in the whole world. In the election year of 1907 nearly every political party submitted female candidates. 19 women were selected and these women became the worlds first congresswomen.
