Monday Tuesday.



This time of year it usually is rather cold over here. Not this time. We had hardly any frost and no snow at all. Different from other parts of the world where there inches of it as I read on several blogs.

This is also the time of year that I like to think about going on vacation , like where and when.

It is so nice to look at photo´s that bring back memories.

I did make a little collage of photo´s I made in England when we were there a few years ago. I would love to go and visit those beautiful gardens again.

A person can always dream….right?

Riet even your postage size link up drew me in. What gorgeous garden photos make up this mosaic and I know they bring you happy memories!

Lynne said...

Dreamy pictures . . . flowers and greens sound wonderful right now. Nice to see pictures!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

I would love to visit the gardens of England, the place where it all started for us in Canada. At least you've been, I'm still dreaming. ;-)

Wanneer ik deze mooie foto's van Engelse tuinen zie, kan ik mij héél goed voorstellen dat je graag een keer terug wil gaan...het is er zo mooi!

Na een geweldige vakantie in 2013 weten we nu nog niet goed wat we dit jaar gaan doen. Wel binnen Europa deze keer. Maar de interesses zijn verschillend, dus het kan nog alle kanten op.

Een fijne week, Riet! Lieve groet, Ingrid

I love those lavender blues and dark crimson reds together!

We spoke to our daughter in France last night and she said it is 10 degrees and raining - no snow either!

I always love your photo mosaics Riet!
Wishing you a happy new week in the Netherlands.

Shane in New Zealand and sometimes in France!

It seems like a lot of us are thinking of Spring and pretty flowers! Enjoy your week my friend!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Lovely and quite welcome here ( cold and snow or dreary rain :)

"Création" said...

Mag ik met je mee lieve Rietje,
hihi dat lijkt me ook wel wat.
Heerlijk deze zonnige beelden
van fantastische tuinen in
mooi Engeland.

En.....vertel......gaat het
Engeland worden? Maar net wat
je schrijft, er heerlijk over
dromen is ook heel erg prettig.

Geniet van een fijne week,
hier hebben ze al gestrooid,
het vriest hier, brrrrrrr

Veel liefs,

Wouldn't it be lovely to pull up a chair in that garden and have a cup of tea. I can see why you loved it there. Valerie

Pondside said...

It's good to visit your blog again, Riet. Happy New Year!
I'd love to be planning a holiday in a sunny place - preferably a place with a long beach and wonderful clear water. On the other hand, I'd be very happy to sit in that summer garden to sip tea and chat.

Pamela Gordon said...

Wow, what a beautiful garden and flowers in your mosaic. I hope you have a wonderful week and enjoy your very nice winter weather.

Lina Gustina said...

Your lovely mosaic brightens my day!

Kom Achterom said...

ooh dan krijg je toch spontaan zin in de lente. Prachtig zeg die tuinen zijn toch werkelijk paradijsjes!
fijne week

Maria Kristina Maano said...

Hi Riet, what a lovely lovely collage!! My visit to some parts of United Kingdom in 2012 (specially to Anne Hathaway's Garden in Stratford-upon-Avon) was my utmost inspiration for requesting my bf that when we have our own house, I want a space to have my garden where I can grow different flowers :)

Your wish is the same for me, I wish to visit the beautiful gardens and castles in the UK again in the near future!

Happy Blue Monday and I believe it's not yet late for me to wish you and your family, a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2014!

PS. If you have time to check, the link for the Anne Hathaway's cottage in my blog is:

wat een heerlijk fleurig logje lieve riet,
zonneke erbij en het is feest :-)

biebkriebels said...

Het is altijd leuk vakantiefoto's te bekijken. Je krijgt meteen weer zin om weg te gaan. De tuinen zullen nog wel even bruin blijven ben ik bang, je weet nooit wat er nog gaat komen deze "winter".

Diana Taylor said...

A lovely mosaic of photos - the house is beautiful and I hope you get your wish to visit here again soon.

Sally said...

The English do have bunches of lovely blooms.

Please consider returning and leaving a comment for me.
Happy Blue Monday, Riet!

Linley S said...

A beautiful collage of flowers.

LV said...

It never hurts to dream as you never know they might come true. Sometimes, that is all we have.

Jeannie Marie said...

What lovely gardens to enjoy, when it is especially bleak in many parts of the world.

HansHB said...

Beautiful blue, great post!

Riet said...

Ohh wat zijn dit weer prachtige foto,s.
Mooi die kleuren.
Hoe is het bij jullie?

Liefs Riet.

Madelief said...

Lieve Riet,

Als ik naar je foto's van Engeland kijk krijg ik ook weer zin om te gaan. Ik moet nog even geduld hebben, want in mei reizen wij pas af naar de Cotswolds! Ik ben heel benieuwd waar jullie dit jaar naartoe gaan.

Fijne week!

Barb said...

Riet, I enjoyed seeing these colorful blooms on a snowy day in Breckenridge. I'd love to visit those gardens, too.

Exquisite photography montage and do hope your dream comes true ~ carol, xxx (A Creative Harbor)

Happy new year, Riet!

Lovely garden shots .... would like to visit some of the gardens in England sometime :) I love gardening, but I have some visitors (Two roe deers)that eats all my tulips and roses.

Wish you a great week .... groetjes Irene

Sylvia K said...

Photo Cache said...

the flowers are so beautiful.

Hannah said...

The brick house is so lovely with it's long history and patina. The garden is a fitting setting, so lovely, it would be nice to visit there. My husband was explaining that the polar vortex moved over Canada so North America had record lows but Europe was much warmer than usual. Enjoy!

Willy said...

Eigenlijk verlang ik naar wat sneeuw, maar als ik dit zie word ik ook blij. Prachtige plek!
Lieve groet,

What glorious beauty!!!

Lee@A Guide to Northeastern Gardening said...

Just found your lovely blog! The look of an English style garden is so beautiful and you have captured it well. Thank you for sharing!

Wandering Wren said...

You can take the girl out of England but not England out of the girl... - loved the mosaic and share your desire to get back there soon!

Denise @ secondtimearoundfinds said...

Your photo's of the garden are beautiful. I can see why you dream of going back.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I often dream about England! Those photos are just incredibly beautiful...we saw such great flowers when we were there (and that wasn't why we went ... it was such a wonderful unexpected bonus).

edenhills said...

Beautiful collage of flowers. I do love when all my blogging friends travel because I hardly ever leave home. I get to enjoy the world through you.
