Friday.


Last weekend we visited friends who live in the country. I made photo’s of these  old farmhouses . I like the form of these houses. The roofs are built like a pyramid. I can’t find the proper English word for it. There are many of these farmhouses in the north west of our country.
And I have another sunrise I want to show you.

Hildred and Charles said...

Beautiful sky, Riet, and the farmhouses are wonderful, - just think of all the attic space in that type of roof!

"Création" said...

O jaaaa, prachtig dit soort boerderijen lieve Rietje, bij ons in het noorden zijn er ook heel erg veel van te vinden. Ook intern zijn ze fantastisch, allemaal grappige kamertjes en veelal een mooie woonkeuken. Een speciaal sfeertje proef je altijd in zo'n prachtige boerderij.

En wat lees ik nu, weer een heerlijke cruise maken, SUPER, zal je missen lieverd, maar wens jullie een heerlijke week toe.

Liefs
Josephine ♥

What a beautiful sunset! That is quite an interesting house.

klaproos said...

wat een schitterende huizen om te zien riet,
als je zelf maar een klein huisje hebt, lijken het wel paleizen,
toch ben ik blij met mijn paleisje:-)

Jan n Jer said...

Very nice homes...beautiful scenes with the skies so colorful!

Dorothy said...

Beautiful skies! Those houses are interesting with their pointed roofs! I'd hat to have to re-roof one of those!

TexWisGirl said...

those are such neat houses! and a pyramid is exactly how i'd have described it, too.

visiting from green day today again. :)

Liz said...

Gorgeous sunset! Happy sky watching.

Nefertiti said...

quelle magnifique maison ;o)

Very nice homes, and lovely reflections !

Kris said...

Hi Riet,

They have what looks like a pyramid roof! Beautiful photos! I love old farmhouses with creaky floor boards and peeling paint. My grandparents had a two storied farmhouse with an upstairs, how I loved going there. Two of the bedrooms were connected by one big walk in closet that we used to play in. Oh the fun we had in there hiding and playing games. :)

Have a great weekend!

afanja said...

Dat is echt een mooie boerderij, Riet.
Maar die sprookjesachtig mooie zonsopkomst steelt vandaag de show.
Maak er een mooi weekend van.

Anna said...

Dat is mooi wonen daar, Riet.
Fijne serie heb je weer gemaakt... ook de sunrise is heel mooi!
Fijn weekend.
Lieve groetjes van Anna

Judy said...

Those roofs would shed the snow so easily, no matter which way the wind blew it! And they are so interesting, as well!
The sunrise is simply breathtaking!!

me (maria) said...

Like a fairytale!!

Pat said...

I'd say that "pyramid" is a good word to describe this type of roof. These houses look lovely and quaint. Your sunset shot is gorgeous!

Orvalho do Céu said...

Olá,
Lindas fotos onde a natureza está feliz!!!
Deus te cubra de bênçãos e e te faça feliz!!!
Abraços fraternos de paz

Black Jack's Carol said...

Lovely, swirling movement in your sky shot, and the farm houses by the river make me think of all the stories inside those walls.

Dianne said...

beautiful home, I like the design too
your skies are amazing

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You make beautiful collages! It's a lovely home.

Have a great time on your cruise -- take pictures!!!

andrea@townandprairie said...

What unique architecture! The sunrise is beautiful.

Mama Zen said...

Marvelous shots!

Zimbabwe said...

Those roofs are extraordinary, I have never seen ones like that before. The sunrise is beautiful. I seldom ever see a sunrise as we have a couple of houses in the way. May be I should get up early and go walking :) Take care and have a good weekend. Diane

Fiona said...

Good Morning Riet,

Thanks for linking up once again with Green Day.

I am sorry that I have not been around for the last week or so
but I have my Mum staying with me at the moment and feel guilty
if I don't give her my time and so haven't been on the computer much.

Hope all is well with you.

I will have so much catching up to do
when Mum goes home that it will take me until Christmas
to get through all the posts I have missed!

Have a lovely holiday
a cruise sounds wonderful - enjoy

x Fiona

Maria said...

Mooie plaatjes, prachtige boerderijen, ook veel in Noord-Holland inderdaad.
Fijn weekend,

Living In Williamsburg Virginia said...

Fantastic series of photos.

Darryl and Ruth :)

Faye said...

I know what you mean about not being able to find the right word Riet--and I'm supposed to since speak English. This is one reason that I want to keep on with blogging and other social media as grow older. Keep your mind active to have to organize thoughts in print.

As for the house shape--no idea what this style of architecture is called--looks like an open floor plan with some sky lights? Do you get enough snow in the Netherlands that the roof would need to be that pitched?

Enjoy your travels. Hope you see many beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the water. I'm right behind you the first of Sept. :-)

Marie said...

Amazing houses. So interesting in their design! And you took some great photos!

House of Seasons said...

Lieve Riet, fijne vakantie, GENIET!!!
En ik ben wel nieuwsgierig wat er nou mis was met jou reaktie op mijn post 010/020, ik vond het wel grappig van je!
We zullen je missen bij de High Tea bij madelief.
Liefs
Lia

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I love the pointed roofs on the houses, Riet-- very picturesque!

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

What lovely countryside scenes.

Madelief said...

Prachtige boerderijen Riet. Ik hoop dat ik nog op tijd ben om je een goede vakantie toe te wensen. Heel veel plezier en kom veilig weer terug. We zullen je missen tijdens de tea!

Liefs van Madelief x

greet's foto's said...

wat een mooie boerderijen,en zo mooi op de foto gezet,ben gek op die oude boerderijen,binnen zijn ze meestal ook heel oud.

lieve groetjes greet

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

The farmhouses are quite interesting with the symetrical steep roofs. I think that pyramid is a good description and I am not sure what we would call that type of roof.

It would surely have much attic space for a special room!

Bises,
Genie

Jeanne, backyard neighbor said...

Hello Riet, I have had company and tomorrow I will be driving 3 hours to go the the airport for my friend's flight home. We are country people too.

I love the farm house so much. Your description of the roof is perfect. There isn't a better English word for the roof. Smile. The photos are charming and I know you had a lovely time with your friends.

Have a wonderful cruise Riet. We sure are looking forward to our cruise this Dec. I am still hoping for us to meet in Amsterdam.

I have had a wonderful and very busy summer. I'm afraid I have not visited much on my blog and I have missed you.
xo, Jeanne

Marja Visscher said...

Dag Riet,
Zag aan de datum van je laatste blogbericht dat je nog heerlijk vakantie hebt. Aan het weer zal het niet liggen. Geniet er van. We zien later je mooie foto's wel weer!
Lieve groet, Marja
