Outdoor Wednesday.

Susan the host  from A Southern daydreamer, asked for outside and inside decoration photo's on our blogs.

I like to start with an outside photo which I took exactly one year ago. I know because it was our 50th weddinganniversary and tomorrow (Wednesday the 21st) it will be our 51th. There was a lot of snow in December last year . No snow this year, just rain and not so cold. I don't really mind.:)))

It says Happy Holidays and a prosperous 2012.

Now for the inside decorations I made a collage of some photo's I made in my home these last few days.

PInk Saturday.

A few days ago we had friends for dinner and as a good Dutch custom they brought a beautiful bouquet of flowers. It says Christmas all over but it also has a beautiful pink flower in it. It is called suikerbossie. It is the national flower of South Africa.  I never saw it before. The white ones are amarylisses. I forgot the names of the red berris and the little dark red plant.

Beautiful isn't it?

Our world Tuesday.

The week before last we went to the beach in a little village called Noordwijk. The beach and the dunes are beautiful there and of course the North Sea  .I spent many a day there when I was young but mostly in the summer.
This day it was cold and windy but there was a  clear blue sky and  some sun so it was good for walking.  That's what we did.

Shadow Shot Sunday.

Shadow Shot Sunday is hosted by Hey Harriet.

I have two shadow photo's from Spain when we were there in September. This first photo is of a little narrow street in a medieval village called Pals. Most streets in these old villages are very narrow so they give a lot of shadow in the summer.

                      Isn't this bougainville gorgeous? I love that color.
