Pink Saturday.

Like every week Pink Saturday is hosted by Beverly of “How sweet the sound”

Today I have two photo’s of a beautiful mansion in England that we visited called Hinton Ampner.
These photo’s are of the backdoor to the terrace and garden  and I want you to look at the stairs to the terrace. See those lovely little pink and white flowers that grow on the vertical stones. So gorgeous.

I will tell and show more of this beautiful estate in later posts because all the furniture , the china and glassware is so fantastic that I need to show you all that some time in the future.

Today is also a special pink Saturday . It is Miracle makeover weekend Your comment will raise money for a good cause.
Please take the time to go to Beverly’s blog and read what is going on . Here is the link :


Happy pink Saturday everybody.

Ohhhhhh dit is prachtig Riet, wat een herenhuis, daar wil ik zeker wel meer van zien. Heb je ook binnen foto's kunnen maken.
En wat een lieflijke kleine bloemenranden zo langs de traptreden, heel orgineel. Mooi ook de tuinvazen bij de deuren. Prachtige foto's!!!

Wens je alvast een heerlijk weekend,

Wat enig, ik zou dat ook wel tussen mijn stoeptegels willen hebben ipv dat stugge gras :-)

Hello Riet!
I hope the summer is being kind to you and that you are enjoying this wonderful time of year.
I wouldn't mind living in a mansion like this one. And, those steps with the little pink flowers makes me want to start planting!

What a beautiful touch to add to step, Riet! The flowers are so pretty and dainty! I loved your safari park pictures, too! The grandchildren must have loved that! I enjoyed your sweet comment on my most recent post. I know I relax more, but I think you are right...maybe we are never quite done as mothers! Happy weekend!...hugs...Debbie

Very nice!
Happy PS, Riet

Dag Riet,
Wat bijzonder al die bloemetjes op de traptreden. Dat heeft wel iets, hè die mooie oude herenhuizen. Was dat ook het huis van de bibibliotheek die je vorig keer liet zien? Mooi hoor, maar je maakt me wel nieuwsgierig naar de binnenzijde met een ongetwijfeld fraai interieur, mooie plafonds en dito inrichting.
Wens je een fijn weekend! Lieve groet, Marja

Hi Riet, you were quite near to me when you visited Hinton Ampner, it is about 35 miles away. We have visited a few times. I wonder what other places near here you visited??

I love the way the flowers were planted on the steps - charming!

Martin & the Magpie said...

Hey Riet! Bedankt voor je berichtje! Ik zit vlakbij de Cotswolds! Het is prachtig hier, nietwaar? Toevallig dat jij een bloemistendochter bent! Zelf nooit willen doen?
Prachtige foto's! Ik vind het altijd schitterend mooi als die treden zo begroeien! Ik zal je blog gaan volgen! Fijn weekend!
Groeten van Martin
