I went with my mother to see pasqueflowers in Tuulos, Hämeenlinna. They are rare and we hadn't seen them before. On the way back, I went to swim for the first time this year.

The place is a dry slope with pine trees. All the flowers have been marked with sticks.


Most of the plants are hybrids between spring pasqueflower (Pulsatilla vernalis) and eastern pasqueflower (Pulsatilla patens). They have various shades of purple.

I think this one is a spring pasqueflower.

On the way back, we stopped at a shopping centre. There are two fighters outside and a bigger plane inside the building.
