Monday, Tuesday.

 

Finally we had some nice sunny weather today. Good for a walk and taking some photo’s. There was not much color yet but what I saw was enough to cheer me up.

My husband  gave me a new camera for my 75th birthday next Sunday already so I was  happy I could use it today.

Lieve Rietje, heerlijk al die krokussen, hier zie ik ze ook overal en uiteraard ook in mijn eigen tuintje, echt genieten!!!

Wat een SUPER kado heb je van manlief gekregen zeg, alvast voor je verjaardag. Een fantastisch kado en aan jou zeer zeker goed besteed.

Dat gaan nog veel mooiere foto's worden denk ik, want de hedendaagse toestellen kunnen steeds veel meer.

Lieverd,geniet van een fijne week, en alvast heerlijk aan het oefenen gaan met je nieuwe toestel.....

Veel liefs,

Pondside said...

How lucky that you got your birthday present early so that you could take these lovely photos. The crocuses are finished here now, and the grape hyacinths are all over the place. Have a wonderful birthday week!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Happy Birthday in advance, and yay for your sweet husband...he must have known you were going to have a good photo-op day! Beautiful early spring color....I miss crocuses and those kind of flowers because they don't bloom here, where (as you know) it is too hot. (It's the tradeoff for not having cold toes all winter!)

Jemma said...

Happy Early Birthday! The flowers are beautiful and you have created a lovely mosaic.

Lavender Cottage said...

That is so beautiful Riet. A few people in our neighbourhood have planted crocus in their lawn - not that many yet, and they look fabulous.

I'd like to wish you an early "Happy Birthday". Enjoy your new camera.

Good morning Riet, Your new camera is working beautifully. We too have had a very late Spring here in the mountains. Finally, our trees are beginning to bloom. Have fun with your lovely birthday gift. Also happy belated birthday.

Hugs, Jeanne

What a lovely mosaic of photos - such pretty flowers and a cheerful splash of colour on a grey day - well, it's grey here, and they've cheered me up!

What a good man you married! The crocuses are beautiful.

EG CameraGirl said...

I forgot to say Happy Birthday!

Andrea said...

Wow, that is a spectacular crocus park. It seems you are the first among the linkers who has some spring blooms already. At this moment we are the total opposite of your winter, the height of our dry/hot season....and Happy Birthday. That age is certainly for celebration. My mother is now 83 but we gave a big party when she was 75. Have a wonderful life ahead.

Fun60 said...

What a wonderful birthday present. I can see you are going to be having a lot of fun with it in the future. Happy birthday.

ladyfi said...

Happy Birthday! These delightful flower shots are wonderful.

Jedidja said...

O, wat zijn ze mooi hè ... die 'krokeltjes'. Prachtige foto. je fleurt mijn dag op.

biebkriebels said...

Gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag alvast. 75 wat een leeftijd al weer, is dat niet vreemd om je te realizeren. Wat leuk dat je een nieuwe camera hebt gekregen!

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

Oh Riet
I'm totally in awe of such a huge planting of wonderful crocuses - AMAZING!!!
Your new camera takes a wonderful photograph.

I never see anything like that in our Spring - only a few here and there. The climate where I live in New Zealand is too mild - I would love to have snow!!! You must think I'm mad!
Sheets of Spring flowers may have something to do with your cold winters and snow to set the bulbs.

Most definitely worth the wait for you.

Happy Birthday my dear Riet, I'm only a couple behind you!!!
Have a lovely day!

Much love and hugs
Shane ♥
