Oh so quiet....
When I went to the garden last Wednesday, to have coffee with friends, it was oh so quiet. It felt sort of strange, but in a pleasant way. Our garden is situated between the airport and one of the major highways. Normally, there is always a bit of noise in the background. It must have been the lack of wind that caused the silence.
It was a lovely morning, with high temperatures (and humidity). While sitting in my chair, waiting for my friends to arrive, I saw the dawn's morning mist rise from the garden. It looked absolutely beautiful! As there was hardly any sun, the colours of the daisies, digitalis, lupins and first roses were very intense. Perfect weather for taking photographs. They may look a bit hazy though!
Some of you asked which plants I took with me from the plant fair. I had too write them down, because I was afraid I would forget them. I bought a Pink Cloud rose, which is the bright pink rose on the photo, primrose beesiana, penstemon hirsutus, salvia pratensis 'Twilight serenade' and achillea mill. 'Summer Berries'.
Hope you were able to spent some hours outdoors too?!
Wishing you a happy new week from a now wet and chilly Rotterdam.
Almost forgot to thank you for leaving comments on my blog and visiting my Facebook and Pinterest page. I appreciate it very much!!
