Alphabe Thursday.

Alphabe Thursday is hosted by Ms Jenny Matlock. This week we need to find words with the letter S.
For me it was the word Summer.
As we are nearing the end of summer I am thinking it was not such a super good one. We didn’t have  much sun and had  a lot of showers .
During our stay in England we visited the most beautiful gardens and they all said SUMMER.  I think you agree when you see these photo’s.

All these photo’s are made by me in the Great Dixter gardens.

Wat een zee aan bloemen in deze tuin...ik mocht willen dat het de mijne was! Dan zou ik er elke dag een boeket plukken!!

Ik wens je een fijne avond Riet! Lieve groet, Ingrid

P.S. Ik hoop op een lange 'after-summer' :-)!

Beautiful flowers, I especially like the purple ones.

We had no summer here in Ireland and are still waiting for it to arrive!!

Beautiful photos that definitely remind me of an English summer.

The flowers in your collages are full of beautiful color, Riet! I love the red poppies!

Judie said...

I just lost my comment so I am trying again. Riet, your photos are beautiful! I have been to the flower auction in Aalsmeer, and the flowers there are equally beautiful!!

It would have been lovely to stroll through these beautiful gardens.

Pondside said...

The luxury of all that colour - fabulous! I love the red of the poppies amidst the blues and whites and even the purples.

I love summer flowers! These were beautiful. I think my favorite were the fields of lavender.

Fijne dag Riet x

Jackie said...

Wow what beautiful flowers, we are very lucky in the UK to have some wonderful gardens. The RAIN and sun really make them grow, ;-))

We are hoping to visit Great Dixter in a weeks time while in the area, I am not sure there will be much in flower then though.

Have a great weekend, Jackie in Surrey, UK.x

Lola said...

Love your ‘S’ post! Great pics - I so miss English gardens here in Spain!

Have a great weekend & look forward to *seeing* you again next time,



myorii said...

Those are definitely beautiful summer flowers :) Our summer here has been record heat almost every single day. All flowers that normally bloomed this season ended up dying because of it :(

Lieve Riet,

All beautiful flowers!

Gattina said...

We are sitting in the same boat, litteraly, with all that rain and indeed, when I too was in England there really was summer !

C'est moi Claudette said...

Bonjour Riet
Your blog is always so full of wonderful colours. I've always wanted my little cottage to look like an English Garden. It's not happening ; ( I should just scatter seeds and let God grow them wherever he pleases.
Happy Thursday my friend.
Love Claudie

Sue said...

What a delightful "walk" through these beautiful gardens.

"Création" said...

Geweldig deze foto's Riet, daar wordt je toch gelukkig van. Wat een prachtige bloemenweelde en heerlijke kleuren allemaal.
Volgens mij heb je een voorraad foto's voor de eerste tien jaar, hihi. En daar kunnen wij allemaal weer heerlijk van genieten.

Liefs Josephine

Jenny said...

Oh Riet! What superb captures! The single time I visited your country, I was enchanted by the countryside and the profuse blooms and colors everywhere!

Thanks for a wonderful walk down memory lane and a big serving of eye candy!

Oh my goodness, my goodness. So much beauty in one post, I don't know where to begin. I love the woodsy 'feel' to all this, but the colors just dance. I'm delighted visiting with you today.

Good news and some MORE good news is my Friday post. Hope your weekend goes smoothly!!!

Dag Riet,
Wat een heerlijke zomerse plaatjes, daar zijn we met dit verschrikkelijke weer wel aan toe. Je hebt trouwens wel een sportieve kleindochter, zeg. Wat een leuke, frisse meid! Heb het de laatste tijd behoorlijk druk, dus van tekenen komt niet zoveel. Gelukkig nu het Magazine weer achter de rug. Nu moeten er nog een paar boeken verschijnen en wellicht heb ik dan weer wat tijd voor mezelf! Verlangen is groot. Wens je een fijn weekend!
Lieve groet, Marja
