saturdaymorningmarketflowers plus

Update of the bouquet I made on saturday. Somehow the dill I used, didn't cooperate. Instead I put the yellow heliantus, my mother brought from her own garden, between the lilly's. These sunny yellow flowers are from plants that my grandfather planted fifty years ago in my parents garden. As you can see they are still going strong.

bright autumnday

Around my corner you find "De negen straatjes" or "The nine little streets". Restaurants, fashion, shoes, cakes and more. Today was a perfect day for a stroll. We visited the little streets and sat for an hour in the sun on a bench along the canal Prinsengracht.

no cars today

Cars were not allowed today. On this glorious, sunny sunday inhabitants and tourists celebrated Amsterdam on bikes, walking, on the crowded water in boats or in carriages drawn by horses. It was a happy day !

My mother is blessed with eternal youth. Today is her 75th birthday. Yesterday she was the queen at her own birthdayparty for family and friends on a sunny sunday afternoon at a beautiful green location. I'm proud of her.
