Among them Liverleaf, Wood Anemone, Wonder Violet, Dwarf Milkwort, Cuckoo Flower, and many others. Dry meadows are full of Kidney Vetch, Bird’s Eye Primroses, and Globe Flowers. In May you will be able to see orchids, such as the Military Orchid, Early Purple Orchid, Fly Orchid, Lady’s Slip-per, etc. Bog Rosemary, Labrador Tea and Cranberry can be found in full bloom in Estonian bogs.
