What A Day!

Wowie, we're experiencing gorgeous weather over here today and tomorrow is going to be even nicer!  "Purrfic!" as Pop would say on 'The Darling Buds of May'...  {smile}

G. had his last work day today and I finished my last lessons at Little Bit. I had so much fun there today. The first rider I ever worked  with 3 years ago came back for a lesson. She is 8 years old now and has grown so much. She remembered my name immediately and still is one of the only ones to pronounce it correctly.  ~wink~

Now I finally have that vacation feeling in me: Yes!

Here some beautiful pictures from more flowers in the yard. I used the Av-setting this time so I could determine my own focal point instead of the auto-focus....

Focus on the  little bud...

Focus on the right flower....

And oh yeah, the Swedish lady came by with her kids yesterday afternoon and we had a great time! They stayed until almost 7pm and we just chatted the whole time. She is from Skane for those of you from there, Monica and Viveka!  ~wink~

Right now this vision below is waiting for me so I'm off....



  1. I think your photos are looking great. All those beautiful flowers.

    I'm so glad the Swedish lady came over and she stayed for a long time. She may end up being a great friend!

  2. SOoooo glad the Swedish lady is nice - was worried you might have ended up with a stalker!

    Love the shot of the lilac flower from underneath.

    I seem to be morphing into Ma from Darling Buds!
    (would rather be Mariette!!!)

    (we have sun too...hooray!)

  3. Haha Fee, I was more afraid that I was being considered the stalker! ;-)
    I have to watch those Darling Buds again I think (if I can find them here), so much fun...

  4. I'm so glad you had a great time, how were the kids? sometimes I find I love the parents and they have monster kids, that sounds terrible but I'm in this situation right now! He's a 5 year old monster He peed in her vacuum and smashed her new kindle in one day! she keeps calling and I'm busy, yikes!

  5. Hej Marjan,leuke ontmoetingen en mooie foto's. Wat is het heerlijk weer bij jullie, ik verlang er ook al weer naar.
    Fijn weekend, lieve groetjes

  6. Your flower-pictures are looking better and better if it is possible!
    Congratulations to your vacation-feelings! It's one of the boring things about beeing retired, you don't get any vacation...wink!
    Nice to hear that you have got a new friend from Skåne!
    Kram, Monica

  7. Great pics! Really enjoyable!

Flooded waters...

With all the recent rainfall and snow melting in the mountains, some flooding occurred once again in our valley. Yesterday, whils...
