the Swedish cornel, hönsbär (Cornus suecica; 2nd photo) - thank you so much, Harald!
When I translated the Looduskalender article about it
I was going to protest that the dwarf cornel fruit isn't exactly “rootsi punane”, Swedish red, “faluröd” – a much cherished, traditional, Swedish national heritage, red to red-ochre coloured paint (made with leftovers from the Falu copper mines , fascinating story, that too, but not exactly Seasons) - but a rather bright glossy cinnabar red. - Thought I would get photos on vacation, but the cornels were gone. So, thanks!
And while we are about it, Mr. Carl von Linnaeus and I
think that the dwarf cornel flower is quite noticeable and quite pretty too, with 4 large pure white bracts (“petals”) and a dark „eye” in the middle; Linnaeus praised it on his Lapland journey: ” … I greatly admired the pleasing sight of this plant that covered the ground in the vast forests and copses with its snowy-white bracts
” (Linnaeus, Flora Lapponica, 1737/ from Virtuella floran
; my translation)
As always from Harald - wonderful photos!
