PHOTO GALLERY:
FINLAND : Bennas, Larsmo and Jakobstad
June 2003


Page Description

This photo gallery consists of my holiday in Finland in June 2003 where I visited my girlfriend Malin who was living there with her parents. She was living there temporarily, until we would travel to Malta after this holiday and live together at my house. We went to several nearby villages and towns including Bennas (her parents house) , Larsmo (their summer cottage), Jakobstad, Vasa, and Stockholm (last day).

Here are some photos of Malin's grandfather (Manfrid Lungstrom) at his house showing the numerous skiing medals he won from 1951 to 1985 or so. I was astonished that at the age of 75 he won some ski medal. There is also a set of photos of flowers found in the wild, garden or park. If you identify some flowers please write me an email and say the Swedish name, English name or /and latin (scientific) name of the flowers shown below. Contact email: info@marz-kreations.com. Thanks in advance for your help!

  Swedish name:
   English Name: Forest Star(?)
Scientific Name:


This is one of my favourite flowers in the forests. It is called the Forest stars. These are seen at the carpet of the forest. They really look like white shining stars which contrast well in the dark shade of trees in the forests. quite many have that pinkish tinge at the edge of the petals.

Probably another Forest star, but this one have 7 petals not 6, so I cannot tell if it is the same plant as the one above or not.
