Finland is a long country.
In April and in October the length of our country really shows. Right now the grass is green in Helsinki, and we are still skiing here - only with less clothes than in winter. Springtime can mean different things depending on where you live. For me it is a chance to go swimming after skiing - in an ice-hole, enjoying warm sunshine.
Most of the Finnish people live in the south, and they may think differently, but in my opinion I don't live in the North - I live in the middle. Just above the waist line.
This is how it looks like today:
