JUST CHILL

As I also write about what I see on my travels and not only about gardening you are getting monkeys twice in a row this time.

Sorry but I have to show you some pictures as they are so funny. You probably know by now that I love love love monkeys. I wish I could be so relaxed when people were looking at me.

no matter what was happening arround him he stayed cool and relaxed
you are watching me but I am watching you haha
showing off my best tooth



This little guy was so relaxed despite lots of people were looking at him and taking pictures of him.

These were taken last week when we went on a daytrip with our 2 grandkids in a safari park in the Netherlands.

Have a great and relaxing week !!

NO FLOWERS TODAY, SORRY

Yesterday we went on a daytrip with the grandkids to a safari park in the Netherlands. Much to my surprise I met one of my favorite animals; the gorilla, there were quite a few of them and they were all male, there was one female with a baby but they were not with the male gorilla’s.

THIS IS MUM AND HER BABY, SHE WAS PLACED WITH A GROUP OF CHIMPS WHO ALSO HAD BABIES.

What a pity you can’t just go near them and shake hands or give them a big cuddle !!

Have a great weekend all !!

A SHORT VACATION(1)

We went away on a short vacation to England and Scotland. I have been in London once for an exhibition in the Tate Gallery some years ago but I never visited England and Scotland before. We used the ferryboat, also a first time experience, and we had a lovely vacation.

We started in Hull and drove to Windermere where we had a boat trip on the lake, and we were not alone…..there were masses and masses of tourists but of course it is the middle of the holiday season here in Europe.

But enough said, here are the pictures.

I AM NOT ALONE IN MY GARDEN

I don’t do all the work in my garden my self you know, I have 2 helpers.

Unfortunately they prefer sunbathing and sleeping instead of working.
