Sunday 16th June is the Wild flower day in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. Denmark was the first country to celebrate the wild plants in this way, since 1988, and from 2002 Norway and Sweden followed, and Finland the following year. Tomorrow we can choose to participate in 65 different botany walks with guides all over the country. Or we can go on our own of course. Everything is for free. And we are lucky and can walk anywere we like in nature, but not on fields and farmland. The wild flowers are lovely all over the world, so I hope you enjoy them too.
This one is a small mountain flower, Silene acaulis that I found on the Glomfjellet mountain last sunday, in the new Lákhu national park. It is called moss campion or cushion pink in english, fjällglim in Swedish, tue-limurt in danish, tunturikohokki in finish and fjellsmelle in Norwegian. Here is a link to my norwegian mountain flowers photo gallery.
