We had glorious weather in Rotterdam this weekend. They said it was going to rain, but it stayed dry all day. I managed to do a lot of work in the garden. In between I did some vintage shopping.
The garden is a riot of colour. Lots of pinks, purples, oranges and reds. The Dahlia's and Sweet peas are in flower and there is an abundance of fruit and vegetables, that are ripe for the picking. The smell is heavenly. The fallen plums give the back garden a sweet scent, whereas the sweet peas at the front almost intoxicate me while sitting in my chair on the veranda. Several of the roses bloom for a second time, like the Rhapsody in blue, Tom Tom and Coral Dawn. I pick bunch after bunch, to take home with me or give to loved ones.
In between today's flowers and fruit, some vintage finds from English and Dutch thrift and Junk stores and the Rotterdam flea market.
Thank you for your enthusiastic comments on last weeks post. Glad you liked it! Hope you all had a pleasant weekend too?
Wishing you a happy week ahead!
* Do you have a Parakeet problem in your garden as well? These cheeky birds eat the ripe fruit on my trees and throw it on the ground when they have only taken one bite. Such a shame.... No home made plum chutney this year....
