Flowers in Greenland

It's true. There ARE flowers in Greenland. This is the national flower of Greenland, known as Niviarsiaq, meaning 'young girls'. This is the season to see them. They grow everywhere they find some land and water, even in between rocks and ice, defying all odds.

Another widespread variety - Harebell.

..and Arctic Cotton, also known as Cotton-grass.

Wow, amazing pics. Next time, you take an exotic trip, I would love to join atleast for a few days. (of course, this is ignoring if that is practically feasible )
