Alphabe Thursday.


For Ms Matlock’s class we have to study the letter T this week.
Thank you is my first T word and I want to say Thank you  to all of you who kept me in their thoughts and prayers last week when I had back surgery. It all went well and I am on my way back to recovery. That will take some time but I will get there I am sure.
I made a collage of my favorite flowers , Tulips. I have masses of photo’s with tulips of different colors but I only picked a few to show here. All these photo’s I took last year in The Keukenhof, our world famous spring bulb park. For more information on this beautiful park go to their site.  http://www.keukenhof.nl/

Good morning Riet, I came over to see if there was news of your surgery and I am so happy to see you are recovering. I can only imagine the pain and discomfort you have been through and are still experiencing. I am sorry about this but your words are encouraging that you will have a good recovery.

I is wonderful to see you are posting. As always your photos are beautiful. Please do not worry about visiting!!! "Rest" and be well.
Prayers to you today and always,
Love,
Jeanne

Ik ben er nog nooit geweest maar ik denk dat ik daar met mijn camera ook prima uit de voeten zou kunnen, net als jij! Wat een mooie collage!

Ik moest zo lachen om de vintage opmerking over jezelf bij Madelief :)!!

Ik wens je een fijne avond...en doe rustig aan!! Lieve groet, Ingrid

Madelief said...

Fijn om te horen dat het weer beter met je gaat Riet. Het is toch een flinke operatie die je hebt ondergaan.

Je foto's van de Keukenhof zijn prachtig. Ik ben er nog steeds niet geweest. Erg he?!

Ik wens je hele gezellige paasdagen toe!

Veel liefs van madelief x

Hoi Riet,

Fijn dat het goed met je gaat! En de Keukenhof... ben er nog nooit geweest maar daar gaat verandering in komen: 16 april staat gepland, samen met m'n moeder. Ik kan me er nu al op verheugen, zeker na het zien van jouw foto's! Camera gaat natuurlijk mee!!

Lieve groet uit het zuiden!

Hi Riet,

I'm so glad you are feeling alright from your surgery. Your photo collage of tulips is beautiful. A welcome sign of spring. Take things nice and slow.

The Tulips are Terrific!

I'm glad all went well and you're on the road to recovery. Beautiful tulips, but I think you live in the tulip capital of the world. I wish we could grow them here, but it doesn't get cold enough for the bulbs. We could grow them but we'd have to dig up the bulbs and put them in the refrigerator over the winter.

EG CameraGirl said...

I'm glad you are recovering well, Riet! I'm not surprised that you love tulips. :))

edenhills said...

Glad to hear you are recovering. Your tulip mosaic is wonderful! I love the purple ones in the top left. Beautiful!

ellen b said...

So good to hear you are doing well after your surgery. I'm saying a little prayer for you right now for continued healing...

Splendid Little Stars said...

Riet, glad you are on the mend!
I love tulips, too. But so do the deer around here. Sadly, I believe only one tulip bloomed in my yard this year.

anitamombanita said...

I also love tulips. There's something so fresh and happy about them. Glad to hear that your surgery went well. Hope you are up and tiptoeing through the tulips soon!!

Riet said...

Daar word je vrolijk van Riet,al die fleurige bloemen.
Heel erg mooi.

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Hi Riet, I just found you through jenny's T party. Your blog is beautiful and I am following you now! I have gone back through several of your posts and want to see more! The English cottage collage is so pretty. I could definitely live in one of them. And Amsterdam--I have always wanted to go there. My daughter had a chance to visit when she was studying abroad, Maybe someday. Linda

paige said...

GORGEOUS! I love tulips, and it makes me so happy when my tulips survive the deer and start to bloom. About one more week around here, and my tulips should be wonderful. Not quite like in your pictures, but enough to make me happy!

Rick said...

Prachtige tulpen Riet - ik wist ook gelijk dat dit Keukenhof was.

Fijn dat het met je rug goed is afgelopen. Dat je maar weer spoedig 'in de benen' kunt komen.

Fijne Pasen.
