Pale and sweet as a dream's delight

It has been rather cold recently, and we have got even a little bit of snow and hail, and thus the spring is proceeding slowly. But a delicate green color is slowly emerging into the forests.

These photographs were taken on May 1st at Sipoonkorpi National Park. I have visited Sipoonkorpi so far three times, on May 1st, 2nd and 3rd. However, on May 4th I had enough willpower to resist the call of the wild; I visited instead the Prison Museum at Hämeenlinna.
