The weather has been clear and warm these past few days, the garden is in full bloom, so here are some photos. Flowers mostly, but also a hot air balloon I captured from my window today.
Hot air balloons used to be a common sight on clear days throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, but ballooning became less popular in recent years due to high gas prices. Hence I was pleased to see this balloon, advertising an electronics store, from my window today.
The garden is in full bloom. Here we have red tulips.

Red and white tulips
Small orange tulips and a hyacinth
Viewed from above, this red tulip looks almost like a poppy.
I have no idea what these blue flowers blooming in the neighbours’ garden are called, but they sure look pretty.
These tiny wild pansies are growing on the lawn. They are the descendents of cultivated garden pansies that have returned to the wild.

Another blossoming garden shrub
A birch tree with fresh leaves and catkins. It’s sure lovely to look at, but unfortunately I’m also heavily allergic to the pollen.
