Only two more days to go before my summer holiday starts. I am looking forward to spend some time with my daughters.
My two youngest daughters and I will be off to the UK soon. We rented a cottage near Bakewell in the Peak District and another near Thirsk on the North York moors. If you have any suggestions of special places to visit, fun events, good antique centres or hip cafés, please let me know. They are very much welcome.
Today's photo's were taken during a short trip to Cambridgeshire in May, which I made in the company of two sweet friends. The countryside looked dreamy, with large clouds of cow parsley swaying in the wind. The photo's show what I think is important in a holiday: to spend it in the company of people that you love, to enjoy the beauty of nature, to roam the countryside, to discover new places, read a book or two or to just lay on the grass and let your mind wander and imagination fly.
Wishing you all these things and more. Have a good time. See you in a couple of weeks!
* Callwey publishers kindly permitted me to give away one of their books 'Decorate with Flowers' by Holly Becker and Leslie Shewring. The book is in German and absolutely beautiful. I will tell you more as soon as I get back. So stay tuned!
