This one is not about flowers but about vacation. We spend a day on a boat in a natural park in Holland, called THE BIESBOSCH with lots of creeks and sweet water, not salt water.
There is so much water all over Holland (the netherlands) that almost every family here has one or more boats.
A FAMILY OUTING
ALL SORTS OF BOATS AS YOU CAN SEE
Alas it was too hot for most animals and all we could see were some gull’s and ducks and a few swann’s.
We enjoyed the cooler wind on the water and watching all the other boats.
Have a great week all and thanks for visiting !
The colour BLUE, I love it !!! And that is what you get in the South of France, a blue sky and a blue sea, and that specific blue is one of the prettiest blues I can think of. And ofcourse lots of other blue stuff.
LOOK AT THIS SKY !!!!
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting !
PS THERE IS MORE TO COME OF OUR HOLIDAY IN FRANCE.
We just came back from a holiday in the South of France. France is one of our neighbouring countries and to go there is about 1100 kilometers.I would advice you not to go there in July and August unless you really have too as it is the summerschoolholiday for the whole of Europe then. But France is amazing and I am not surprised it gets the most tourists in the whole world !!! Personally I prefer the South, the Provence and the Cote d’Azur.
But hey, I think you want the pictures, not my bragging. So here they come.
We visited a special garden, it was the garden of a monastery in Mane ; Jardins de Salagon.

DETAILS OF THE WALLS
THE FOLLOWING PICTURES WERE TAKEN IN THE GARDENS
IT WAS DEFINITELY PUMPKIN TIME IN FRANCE, THEY WERE EVERYWHERE
FIGS EVERYWHERE IN THE SOUTH, REALLY EVERYWHERE !!!
THE WILD PIGS RUINED ALL THE GARDEN PATHS THE NIGHT BEFORE OUR VISIT.
As you can see is was definitely Autumn in the South of France, earlier than usual cos of the severe heath and drought they had for months on end. Here too we have an early Autumn.
There is more to come about our vacation in France so if you are interested watch my blog.
Have a great day and thanks for visiting.
Sorry for my silence but we just returned from our vacation in France. We were supposed to have wifi but it broke down and so I couldn’t keep my blog up.
We spend 2 weeks in the South of France and I took lots of photo’s so as of tomorrow I hope life will return to normal.
Here’s a preview.
LOTS OF COSY LITTLE VILLAGES
You name it, France has it !
Have a great week !
