Before I tell you where today's photo's were taken, I would like to thank you for your kind comments on last weeks post and for participating in my giveaway. I am sorry I am neglecting you a bit lately, but I am in the garden a lot and working on a new project at home...oh and I have to go to work too :-).
The lovely book Geniessen im Garten goes to Francis, from the blog By Surprise. I believe this is the first time that a giveaway of mine is going to someone who lives in my home town Rotterdam. Francis. I am really happy that Annebelle picked your name. I think you will like the book very much. It will give you lots of ideas for your own garden and delicious recipes to prepare for your children and granddaughter. Could you please email me your address?
Last weekend I felt like a princess. I stayed in the Bed and Breakfast of a friend of mine, who I met through work. We made a deal. I would take photo's of her horse, in exchange for a night in her lovely B&B. It was one of the best deals I made in a long time :-) My friend's B&B is called De Keekener and is near Kleve in Germany, in an area which is outstandingly beautiful. If you like wide open countryside, far stretching views and a taste of country life, this is the place! The rooms are clean and comfortable and my friend Sjanne an excellent host. Dear Sjanne, thank you once more, for your hospitality and your friendship. I had the best of times! xox
We visited the Millinger Theetuin, which is only half an hours drive from the B&B on bicyle. It's a lovely ride through the Millingerwaard nature reserve and along the banks of the river Rhine. I have been there a few years ago, but it looked totally different now. Although it was a dark and rainy day, the garden looked beautiful in all it's spring glory. Don't you just love the blossoms on the trees?! I can't get enough of them :-)
Taking you to my garden next time.
Wishing you a lovely week ahead. Have fun!
