Wild flowers


On the 14th of June, the name day of Kielo (Finnish for "lily-of-the-valley"), we celebrate the annual Wildflower Day.  A number of free flower walks, for example, are organized on the day.

The wildflowers of these photos bloom here from June or July onwards. (The photos are from previous years.)

On Muusa's lovely blog, Muusan elokuu, you can find other beautiful photos of Finnish wildflowers. Definitely worth visiting! 





Yhteispohjoismaista Luonnonkukkien päivää vietetään 14.6.  Päivän tavoitteena on kasvituntemuksen ja -harrastuksen edistäminen sekä yhteisten luontokokemusten tarjoaminen mahdollisimman monelle. Tänä vuonna teemalajina on tupasvilla.

Luonnonkukkien päivänä järjestetään kukkaretkiä ympäri maata. Retket ovat 2–3 tunnin mittaisia, maksuttomia ja avoimia kaikille kiinnostuneille. Lisätietoja: Suomen luonnonsuojeluliitto, Marja Haatanen, puh. 044 559 9755, luonnonkukat@sll.fi

  4. Hello Sara,
    Now I had not a wild day, but I love very much wild flowers. They are very nice and when I walk I do it always with my camera. So I have a lot of beautiful flowers discovered in recent years.
    Your photo's are also very beautiful!

    Love, Gerry

  14. The last photo with all the wildflowers is the best collage of all Sara! I have geum rivale growing around our pond and I make sure to deadhead them right away or they seed all over. Their flowers attract some good food for the resident frogs.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.
