It's quiet in blogland. Most bloggers are probably enjoying the summer holidays, and rightly so. I haven't been spending much time behind my computer either. The weather is too fine, not to enjoy! It keeps luring me outside :-). I love to go the beach, make long walks and step on my bicycle. We made a short trip to Bergen recently, a lovely seaside town not too far from Amsterdam. I will show you some photo's soon. I have also started on a new crochet project, but more about that soon as well.
We enjoy the peacefulness of the garden too. There are many shady places to sit and relax. I am a bit disappointed with the colour in my garden at the moment. There are some mid season plants missing. My mother bought me some phlox recently, which will brighten it up a little. The Sweet Peas are looking exceptionelly well. They are all over the place, growing abundantly, a riot of colour. Hurray to them!!
I want to say thank you to Conny, from the blog Conny's cottage, for winning her lovely shopping bag. A big kiss to you Conny!
I was absolutely delighted to receive a mail this week, that my garden was featured in the July issue of the American magazine 'Creating Vintage Charm' :-). Thank you Sonia, for your kind words and making it all look so pretty!
A lovely week to you all! Enjoy the summer!
