A walk in Nuuksio

Walking in Nuuksio  national park 6.6.2015.

The first photo is of a cloudberry blossom.

Bog arum or marsh calla.

Angular Solomon's seal.

Lily of the valley, the national flower of Finland.

Beautiful mosses.

The tadpoles had very little water to swim around in
at the bottom of the ditch. I hope they made it.

These frogs were photographed last year (26.4.2014).

  1. Så vakre blomsterbilder! Lijekonvall er utrolig vakre. Jeg visste ikke at det var Finnlands nasjonalblomst! Flotte froskebilder :)

    Ha en fin helg!

  2. Really pretty macro shots! I learned something new as I now know lily of the valley is your country's national flower!
    I remember watching tadpoles hatch when |i was small in the swamp near our farm. Great photos!

  3. These are all wonderful photos Gunilla. Thank you for again linking with Today's Flowers. Always appreciate your support :) Wishing you a very happy weekend.

  4. Hello, Gunilla. your flowers are beautiful. The frogs are cute, great capture of the tadpoles. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

  5. These are very pretty flowers. Now I know what Lily of the valley looks like and that it is the national flower of Finland. When I was a young kid, I used to catch tadpoles. Now I wouldn't even dare take snapshots of frogs for fear of the frog jumping at me. Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Nice pictures Gunilla! They take me right back to spring.

  7. Herlige froskebilder og nydelige hvite blomster, liljekonvall er en av mine favoritter.

    God helg og ha en fin adventstid.

  8. Fina bilderm Gunilla! Har nog aldrig sett en hjortronblomma irl - den var söt!
    Ha en go helg!

  9. Your flower shots are luminous. I love the tiny lily of the valley. Don't kiss any frogs!

  13. Excellent close-up of the cloudberry! I love the frog too!

  14. Wow those frogs are awesome - were they loud, I went to a friends house the other day who had frogs in her hedge would you believe, the noise was deafening!

  15. Hello Gunilla,
    Magnificent series pictures, the flowers are amazing.
    I think they photographed all perfect, my compliments.
    Best regards, Irma

  16. How refreshing to be reminded of the beauty to be found in warmer weather!

  17. Kieloja ja lakan kukkia ovat tosin kauniita kukkia. Onkin kiva nähdä sammakoita hyvässä tunnelmassa. Vaikka talvi pitäisi vielä tulla se tuntuu että kevät on jo tulessa.
    Terveisiä, Kees

  18. I particularly like the first images of the plants and the macro shots Gunilla.
    I didn't know about the Lily of the Valley being the national flower of Finland, its my sisters favourite flower, which she had as part of her wedding bouquet.

  19. Beautiful pictures, I find anemone with drops very beautiful.
    All the other photos may of course be.
    Fine picture of the new life.
    Greetings Tinie
