Finnish official cards

I've received 4 official cards this week and 2 of them were from Finland.

FI-585549, sent by Heli "HHH".
The sentence on the card means "i'd hope you'll find the flower of the green meadow."

FI-583939, sent by Rontii "leejanss".
"Savonlinna castle is one of the best-preserved medieval castles in Scandinavia. Founded in 1475, it was occupied by the Russians from 1743 to the first half of the 20th century. Today, the castle hosts two museums that outline its history and display its orthodox treasures. Three historic ships, the Savonlinna, the Salama and the Mikko are moored alongside the museum - each housing exhibitions.
For the month of July, Savonlinna castle is the setting for the most renowned and popular festival in Finland - the Opera Festival. Held in the courtyard of the castle, it is a four-week festival of high-class opera attracting top international performers and is well worth an attendance." - in:
