WHENEVER I NEED THEM...FROM MY GARDEN...

To travel is one of my hobbies and sometimes it isn't so far from home and I don't need much money: I go to my garden.
And: my garden changes every hour, every day.
Always a lot to admire and enjoy and....to do!

For more flower photographs: go to the TRAVELOGUES of my homepage!!


ANOTHER GEM FROM MY GARDEN..

My HYDRANGEAis one of my favourites. I think because of the abundance of flowers in all shades and nuances pink/blueish. The flowers don't smell but the real attraction are the many flowers.
In winter the dried flowers, which have changed color by then bring the summer sun in my house: I put them in the in winter dark corners of my house.


my EARLIEST SPRING GUEST...

Early, a bit too early, this daisy nestled somewhere in my garden in a little crack in the pavement where it , to my amazement, withstood cold, rain, hail and all that comes with early spring weather.


FRESH ROADSIDE FLOWERS, I PICKED THEM....

On August 6, a Sunday, I went for a spin and cycled more than 30 km. The weather was fine, some sun, quite some wind (!) and I watched all those flowers along my cycle path and got an idea. On the way back I picked some and returning home I arranged them in my scanner, which the thing seemed to like because it made a nice and clean photo.
See, here it is: a bouquet of fresh, Dutch wild flowers.


DREAMING...WHAT DO YOU SEE IN THAT WATER.....

No, no, no this is not my garden: wish it were. I do have a lovely garden and a pond but not the lovely, endearing statue of the girl. What is she doing? watching the whirligig beetles? the waterfleas? a just opened waterlily? or is she just dreaming about her future, looking at her own face, mirrored in the water?
I envy her: her age, her dreams, her longing and her little girl's world......


ONE OF MY DIAMONDS EARLY IN THE MORNING....

One morning in early spring when I walked to my letterbox at the garden gate this surprised me: the brilliance, sparkle of this simple drop of water lying in the core of this leave: a real gem!
Who knows a better sight to start the day with, please let me know!!!


ALSO ONE OF MY FAVOURITES :HOLLYHOCK

This year my hollyhock begged me to use her as a model by showing off her flowers as never before: well, I couldn't refuse and see here, yes, you can be proud you are in my pages!


FLOWERPOWER 24th FEBRUARY 2000....

Once upon a time.....I had to go to hospital which frightened me very much. The day I had to go there, a cold, misty, murky day in February, I looked at my garden, saying: good bye - see you soon ! to my plants when all of a sudden I saw that my yellow rose had not a bud, but an opened bud showing sweet smelling rose petals and I picked it as a talisman, a good-luck charm. Here it is: a plucky rose because what rose would have the courage to have and then even to open a bud in February?
Well mine did and it really helped me....I had to show the same courage!
Here it is....

PLEASE SEE NEXT TRAVELOGUES, ALL MADE WITH CARE AND PLEASURE, both, the photos and this page!
