May is this year a month of flowers. Lathyrus vernus (spring vetchling, spring pea, or spring vetch) is  native  to forests of Europe and Siberia. It forms a dense clump of pointed leaves with purple flowers in spring, shading to a greenish-blue with age. These seldom seen Spring Vetchlings are in blossom during May or June in Finland.
