We saw these flowers often when we biked in Finland, but didn't know their name. Now we get it.

Hi Jeff, that violet flower is Epilobium angustifolium (Fireweed in English, Maitohorsma in Finnish). I don´t know the name of the yellow one. This photo was taken on the island of Harakka very close to the center of Helsinki.

Thanks once again, Rosi. This photo is quite an old one but still one of my favourites.
