Two postcards from Utsjoki, Finland

Utsjoen kirkko ja kirkkotuvat
(Utsjoki Church)

The sender writes:
Greetings from the northernmost Finnish Post Box. 

This is postmarked from Finland in 2016 with two stamps that features mailboxes.  :D 

Here is one more postcard from Utsjoki . . .
Tunturissa nahda ja kokea monenlaista voi!
uuvana - sielikko

Uuvana, Diapensia lapponica, Fjellpyrd, Fjallgrona
Maisemaa tunturista.
Sielikko, Loiseleuria procumbens,
Greplyng, Krypljung, Duolbadanas

I think this translates to something like:
You may see and experience a variety of Tundra!
diapensia - Kalmia procumbens (alpine azalea)
The second part might be the names of flowers??  Or perhaps the name of these two flowers in different languages??

The sender writes:
Greetings from Utsjoki.  This summer we have mostly admired flowers!

This postcard is postmarked in 2016 from Finland.
