Old Habits Die Hard

Perhaps you remember how much I love this beautiful coastal area,
the border between Belgium and the Netherlands, 't Zwin
I'm a regular visitor for almost 40 years now.

On Wednesday: sun, wind and rain... we had it all!

The land in the sun is just across the border and therefore Dutch territory...

Done beachcombing in Belgium we crossed the border to meet some good friends...

We'll be back again... next week! (big smile)

We really love the watercolour by Gerrit Neven we bought recently.
But oh boy it can be hard to photograph a framed aquarel
without some kind of reflections in the glass (sigh)

the wooden tower is a work from artist Faan Olgers

Last January I took these photos during a 2-day trip to Paris.
We were on a very tight schedule so we postponed entering the cathedral
saving it for a later date (the next trip to Paris). Now I regret we didn't go in!

Special One

(Flemish for special one)

We have some small patches of white wood anemones.
And then the kenderman spotted a single lilac one...

Let's enjoy this Spring weekend!!!!

Magnificent Magnolia

Today it's Hanami Matsuri (Cherry blossom celebration) in Japan.
The Japanese Cherry (Sakura) is flowering now.

Usually I prefer the smaller flowers of a cherry, apple or pear tree.
But right now the big Magnolia trees in front of this old house are stunning!
I just couldn't pass without taking some photo's...
