FINALLY SUN (and a snow white flower)

Yes, the sun was finally shining 🌞

Eindelijk zon! Mijn man zijn: waarom ga je niet fietsen. Dat hielp me en ik was binnen no time weg. Ik fietste anderhalf uur in het rond en genoot zo van het zonlicht en de zachte temperatuur. Toen ik terugkwam was mijn man de boom aan het snoeien. En hij had ook de rozen en de lavendel winterklaar gemaakt. In de keuken stond een bosje laatste lavendel op mij te wachten. Die had hij voor mij afgesneden. Serieus, er bloeide nog lavendel in de tuin!

It was so beautiful! I biked one and a half hour in the early morning. Ever wondered what effect cycling has on your body during the first hour of turning the pedals? Check out the graphic HERE

Almost at home, I saw these beautiful white flowers. I got off my bike to photograph them. I love the golden-yellow stamens round the green, pin-eyed centre. You too?

THE SMELL OF LAVENDER...

When I came back, my husband was pruning our Japanese cherry. He'd also pruned our roses and lavender. In the kitchen I saw to my surprise a bouquet on the table (in a wine glass). So sweet, my husband had carefully picked the last lavender for me. The smell of lavender is very relaxing for me and he knows I love it.

😲 Seriously, a few lavender bushes bloomed in the garden. It is December!

🌸🌷🌹🌼🌻🌺 What's your favorite flower today?

  3. I love that first photo, it is a beautiful scene. Nice shots of the flowers. It is interesting to see flowers so late in the year. No biking weather here unless you love to ride in pouring rain. :) Have a wonderful weekend Aritha.

  12. Er waren dit jaar veel bloemen die nog laat bloeiden.
    Ik heb nog steeds de Broccoliplant in bloei in de moestuin.
    De Hortensia's zien er na de verkleuring nog best mooi uit.

    Mooi dat Hollandse landschap en de fiets er zo bij.
