  10. adorable photographs; lily-of-the-valley is it? I don't see these growing here, the climate is too mild/temperate; they need lots more cold. Wow, these look so crisp and pristine

  14. Hi Gunilla, thanks for visiting my site. These are so elegant and majestic photos, but being in the tropical climate we don't have them. I looked at your profile and can't decipher where is Porvoo and Espoo, i guess it is not a country, LOL. I still have to search what part of the world that is!
