This morning my husband came back from his morning run and he said: "Aritha, it's so beautiful outside. I saw dewdrops on the reed plumes; all glinstering in the sunlight! You have to go too!"
So I left my vacuum cleaner and cycled to the meadows. (Below: bicycle path and the edge of the field)

Mijn man kwam thuis van het hardlopen en zei: het is zo mooi buiten al die dauwdruppels op het gras en op het riet. Je zou het moeten zien. En zo kwam het dat ik mijn stofzuiger midden in de keuken achterliet, mijn fototoestellen zocht en ging fietsen!

I saw so many beautiful flowers, dew drops, sunbeams between the reeds plumes. It was very beautiful and so nice to be there alone. I share some pictures of wildflowers. I take the photos with my husband's camera.

Ik zag mooie bloemen, dauwdruppels op het gras, zonnestralen tussen de ritselende blaadjes en de bewegende rietpluimen aan de andere kant van het fietspad. Het was heel mooie en rustgevend daar. Ik had dit niet op mijn planning staan. Hoe leuk om het af en toe eens anders te doen!

The most beautiful? All the stunning yellow flowers in the golden light of the rising sun! The photos below I made with my little red photo camera.

Er was een klein stukje met oranje-gele bloemen. Daar heb ik echt heel lang stil gestaan om foto's te maken. Het was veel mooier dan op de foto's. Als ik mijn ogen dicht doe, zie ik het nog steeds voor me. Ik probeerde het te vangen met mijn lens maar dat ging niet zo gemakkelijk als ik dacht.

I picked some (other) yellow flowers. Photographed the bicycle tunnel and my bike plus my own shadow 👀

Time to go home!

  12. Your hubby was so sweet to tell you to go out and see the beauty, too. You take such awesome fotos !💜

  13. What a nice bike trail this is, very groomed and nicely kept up. It's wonderful that you ride your bike around your town. I used to many years ago, and I always want to get back at it.

    Have a splendid week, Aritha.


  14. I am so glad you left the cleaning and went out for a ride.
