Photo of the Week--4/25/11

So I discovered that not only did Jean Sibelius write one of my favorite pieces of music (his 2nd Symphony), but he also had this gorgeous house outside Helsinki. He named Ainola, it after his wife Aino, and had it designed with a study facing a lake. We were there in the summer, as you can probably tell from all the lovely sunshine and green. Some days I'd like one of these little writing retreats in the middle of nowhere (but not too far from somewhere).
