Ok so we took the usual round with the dog and I snapped a few pics for you guys:

Red campions and common starwort. This was very pretty and romantic and this photo doesn't do it justice:

A bunch of lupins that are just starting to bloom

And the tiny white flowers here are lingonberries. The larger plant is known as marsh Labrador tea, northern Labrador tea or wild rosemary

Oh yes it's basically exploding with all kinds of life here right now. Very welcome after a long and cold winter/spring. Luckily the whole country shuts down so you really have time to enjoy it while it lasts.

You know it NM, I really appreciate it after months of everything looking monochrome black, white and grey coupled with ridiculously cold temps.
