Soelen Castle | The Netherlands

Yes, the Netherlands has had some great castles. Today I am sharing pics of 'Huis te Zoelen' (Soelen Castle). This castle is situated in the province of Gelderland near Zoelen in the Netherlands. The castle is situated on a small, round Island.

Mama sheep and lambs in Dutch meadow

Wishing you all a GREAT weekend! I saw lambs in the meadow and tried to photograph them. The sheep were very curious. One came very close with his nose: sniff, sniff ...









Are there sheep in your area too?
Zijn er bij jou in de buurt ook schapen?

Bees In Onchard

Springtime in De Betuwe! The Betuwe is an area in the Netherlands where you can see lot of fruit trees: apple, pear, plum and cherry. All of them with their own characteristic blossoms. And everywhere: hives in the orchards
 
 
 
Boomgaarden in de Betuwe
Als je iets anders wilt zien dan tulpen, ga dan eens naar de Betuwe. De boomgaarden staan in bloei. Zaterdag zijn mijn man en ik wezen toeren en het was zo mooi. Vooral toen de zon doorbrak. Prachtige bloesem en veel bijen! Er is jammer genoeg vorst in aantocht. Lees HIER meer.

Dutch Leper Lily

Do you love this beautiful bell-shaped purple flower? It's also known as leper lily (because its shape resembled the bell once carried by lepers). The latin name is: Fritillaria meleagris
 
Kievitsbloem
Ik fotografeerde deze in de tuin van één van mijn vrienden. Ik had ze nog nooit gezien. Iemand uit België zei dat zij witte kievitsbloemen had gezien. Lijkt me ook heel mooi. Heb jij ze ooit gezien?
 
 
The Dutch name for it is kievitsbloem. I saw this flower in my friend's garden, surrounded by red, white and red tulips and tulips with mixed colors, blue muscari and big big white hyacinths. So nice!

A Day with Grandma

I bought a wooden memory game in the thrift store. Wooden games are so pretty! I have always loved it! You too?

Ik houd van houten speelgoed. Jij ook? Regelmatig ga ik even kijken bij de kringloop of er iets is voor mijn kleinzoontje.

I'm here because my mom's at work
 
I 'am growing so fast!

Playing memory :-)

Have a nice day
