Light green birches mean here so much. Dark and cold winter is behind. Warm days and white nights are here.
The Midnight Sun only shines above the Arctic Circle, but nights are white all over the country. In the northern parts of Finnish Lapland, the sun stays above the horizon for over 70 consecutive days. In a municipality of Utsjoki, the sun rose 17.5 and the next sunset is 27.7. We live in the western Finland and here the sun sets just for a while and rises again.
