Sunday, Monday.

 

The other day we drove around a bit and I took the  chance to make a few photo’s.  That funny sort of statue looked so cute ,I  had to take a photo. Also the lovely little house with all the green caught my eyes. The very old church was beautiful . An old man from the neighborhood was mowing the grass. Although it is still very cold for this time of year we get to see a lot of color around. Thank goodness for that.

Wat een prachtige foto,s Riet.
Mooi dat beeld.

Dag Riet,
Wat een grappige foto's heb je gemaakt en eigenlijk allemaal al zo lekker groen. Mooi kunstwerk, erg origineel. Daar moet je toch maar op komen. Weet je dat ik door het slechte weer eigenlijk helemal niet zo goed in mijn eigen tuin kijk. Door jouw foto's dacht ik, zou mijn seringen eigenlijk ook in bloei staan. Zojuist even gekeken en jawel hoor! Ook mijn goude regen heeft een beginnetje gemaakt. Alles gaat gewoon door, maar als iedereen binnen zit heeft dit kleurrijke decor geen bekijks. Behlave jij, jij bent lekker op stap geweest! Zijn je controles goed verlopen? Lekker hè Riet, dat het nu letterlijk 'achter de rug'is.
Lieve groet, Marja

Spring is beautiful in your neighborhood. Thanks for sharing it.

"Création" said...

Hoe orgineel is dit, enig gewoon dat beeld.
En de seringen, kan wel janken als ik ze zie. Zelf had ik ook zo'n prachtige sering, maar vorig jaar heb ik hem helemaal terug gesnoeid, hij werd zoooooo groot.
Enfin,het groen liep weer heerlijk uit, en verheugdde me al op volgend jaar [dit jaar dus] op weer nieuwe bloemen.

Ging mijn lief vorig najaar weer eens driftig met de snoeischaar rond, wat denk je........potverdikkie, knipt hij alle toppen eraf.

Nou je snapt het al natuurlijk, nu VEEL groen maar GEEN sering.

Gelukkig dat ik nu heerlijk bij jou kan genieten van deze fraaie foto's

Fijne week lieve Riet, en tot zaterdag hoop ik....

Liefs
Josephine

Have a wonderful week.

Vee said...

Gosh the whole world seems to be in the same weather pattern. It's certainly been a cool spring here. I'm surprised to see the same flowers blooming in your corner as are blooming in mine. Lovely, graceful mosaics. Thank you for tucking in that whimsical sculpture. I like it a lot.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I like that whimsical looking sculpture very much, Riet! It looks very green there and i see your lilacs are also blooming. Have a wonderful week!

Lorrie said...

Such charming cottages - and beautiful flowers. Spring is everywhere in the northern hemisphere, it seems.

Pondside said...

I like that odd piece of art - very quirky!

Yes, I did open Blue Monday quite early this week as I was away from my computer and did not trust Blogger to work smoothly.

What a creative person to assemble that eye-catching statue. Thanks for sharing your blues.

Happy Blue Monday, Riet.

Riet your images are gorgeous. I love that house covered in green! The statue is delightful! Thank you for sharing.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Love these Riet, and oh such a sweet ivy covered cottage. My neighbor's momma made a similar garden statue for her, on a smaller scale, very cute idea. hHappy week~

Virginia said...

All of the photos you have shared with us today are lovely Riet. I do love the little cottages and the quirky sculpture! :)

Rhoda said...

Beautiful pictures, as always. I had to tell you that we have had an abnormally warm winter and spring here, so the tulips were very early. Every year Holland, Mi. has a tulip festival. Most of the tulips were already done, so they decided to "celebrate the stem"! I thought it was pretty unique.

June said...

I love to do that too Riet. Sometimes I just drive around town and snap away. I always feel a little silly when I get caught doing it. but I get some great shots.
I love the collage of your outing!
sending love...

Wateringen said...
