Winter.



As a matter of fact we haven’t had any snow  this year yet. It is getting  colder but it hasn’t been freezing much either. So far a mild Autumn.

I love snow photo’s so I looked  through my files and found these photo’s from two years ago, made in December in a little park not so far from our home.

My grandchildren do hope for a white Christmas. That doesn’t happen very often in this country.

Autumn.

It is autumn here. Falling leaves everywhere. Not my favorite time of year but thank goodness it is not really cold yet.
Also a  busy time . Getting ready for the holidays, keeping up with the wishlists of the  family and trying to get it all done in time. At least I can try . lol.
Can you see this this country has lots of bicycles. We all have at least one so that will be  about 17 million, wow.

Great Dixter.


While looking through my albums I found these photo’s from Great Dixter, former family home and garden of gardening writer Christopher Lloyd for over 40 years ,in east Sussex England. We were there a few years ago in mid summer as you can see by all the flowers in full bloom. I chose a lot of red for this collage because there were so much of it in those gardens at that time.
It is so wonderful to look back and remember all that beauty.

Due to circumstances we don’t get around much lately so I thought I’l show some photo’s from exactly a year ago. We were in south Florida and the Keys and we had such a wonderful time.

So here they are.

Beautiful sky time.


This time of year we see these beautiful skies at sunrise and sundown again. I made all these photo’s  in the last month or so. I have many so it was hard to pick a few but these are some of my favorites.

Silvercity Schoonhoven.


A few days ago we visited a lovely little city not far from us called Schoonhoven.
Schoonhoven is renowned for its silver, hence it is nicknamed “Zilverstad” (Silvercity), home of the Dutch Silver museum and the International silver school
We didn’t have enough time
that day so we will be going back soon and visit the silver and clock museum.
Here just a collection of what we saw during our short walk.

On my next photo there is a memorial
of the 1953 waterflood storm.. It shows how high the water came here in Schoonhoven. during the biggest nature disaster of all time her in Holland.
