After almost 4 years I decide to stop writing for this photo blog. There will be no new messages, no new photos, but you can continue to view the old photos. 

I thank you all for all the nice comments. It was amazing.

Take care,

Early in the morning, during my bike ride through the forest. I thought I was the first person on earth to ride this road. Amazing!

The Veluwe is a forest-rich ridge of hills (1100 km2) in the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands. The Veluwe features many different landscapes, including woodland, heath, some small lakes and Europe's largest sand drifts. The Veluwe is a tourist destination, especially for Dutch people wanting to go on a short vacation in their own country. (Wikipedia)


And I saw this nice red spotted mushroom.
So great!

Do you love mushrooms?

This is my Dutch sunrise. Mist in the air. I can smell the farm fields. I was here on Monday; walking and waiting for the light.

Ik hou van zonsopkomst in dit seizoen. En terwijl ik daar liep, in dat natte weiland, herinnerde ik me het weiland uit mijn jeugd. Hoe ik daar liep en sporen maakte in het natte gras. Het komt nooit meer terug maar de herinneringen koester ik.

Have a Nice Saterday.

All dahlias are beautiful in their own way! I love them because they have the most perfect symmetry and come in a rainbow of color options. Chantal Larocque

The rain is gone. I am in the garden and stare at my sunflowers. I take some photos. I love the smell of  wet earth after rain. You too? 


“What I like doing best is Nothing."

"How do you do Nothing," asked Pooh after he had wondered for a long time.

"Well, it's when people call out at you just as you're going off to do it, 'What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?' and you say, 'Oh, Nothing,' and then you go and do it.

It means just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering."

"Oh!" said Pooh.”

― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Mijn zonnebloemen
Mijn zonnebloemen gaan een beetje hangen. Maar, achter het huis komt er nog eentje aan Ik kijk er elke dag naar uit. Vandaag of morgen vouwt het de  blaadjes open!

The large flowers of my sunflowers in the front garden bend down more and more. Pretty soon the birds will peck the seeds out. But, another sunflower, behind my house and is almost blooming. I look forward to it every day.

  • I want to be like a sunflower; so that even on the darkest days I will stand tall and find the sunlight.
  • How beautifully the leaves grow old! How full of light and color are their last days!

Blessings and the best wishes.

So glad you enjoyed my posts. Thank you for taking the time to read my blogposts and comment! After the summer holidays, I have more time to visit other blogs. Another two weeks ... and then back again to normal life.

Normal life?
Eh, normal life? No. My husband and son will be working from home. Our Prime Minister reiterated his message on Tuesday asking people to work from home as much as possible. "The advice remains: work from home as much as possible."  

  • How are you dealing with COVID-19 in your area?

I share some photos of a small heath field, called Elsterkopje. It was a bit foggy. But that was exactly what made it beautiful. Enjoy!

Vandaag laat ik wat foto's van de hei op een mistige dag zien. Ik wandel hier vaak heen vanuit het bos. Die kleine spinnenwebjes vind ik zo mooi. Net kleine diamantjes, die dauwdruppeltje!

See that birch below? Too bad that it's blown over by the storm. It stood there so beautiful and characteristic, right on the edge of the heathland.

Jammer van die berk hรจ? 
Hij stond daar zo mooi aan de rand maar de storm heeft hem geveld.

All those droplets! I took some up with my hand to cool my warm cheeks.

Hoe gaat het met jullie? Is het nog vakantie? En heb je de prachtige heidevelden al gezien? Echt de moeite waard. Veel liefs van hier.
