The Flowers of Kaffeklubben Island, Greenland

This out of the way glacial island is located off Cape Morris Jessup in Greenland. Here two types of flowering plants manage to bloom in summer, despite the island’s closeness to the arctic pole. The Purple Saxifrage and the Arctic Poppy bravely bloom during the 30-day summers the island has and for a little while each year, the island is a place of beauty, quite unlike its normal rugged, dry and rocky conditions.
