Taking my camera out for a walk

Today's post is just a short one, with lots of pictures. I am overwhelmed and very tired and had to cancel my latest giveaway because of that, and I'm very sorry for that.

Anyway, I did something I wanted to do for a long time. I took my camera for a walk and wanted to share with you what I found. All these pictures came from my neighbourhood or my backyard. 

Love the smell of lilac, so fresh and spring-like!

I live in the Netherlands, so of course there have to be tulips!
And I love these orange poppies (also very Dutch since orange is the colour of the Netherlands!)

Not sure what these pink flowers are, but the yellow one is definitely a tulip.
Hey look! Blue skies! All of you who live in the Netherlands, will surely get why I had to take this picture!

The picture I've been wanting to take for a long time- love how they keep a globe in their window. When it's dark, it glows.

And, let's not forget this beautiful chestnut tree!

  1. I love lilacs too. They're beautiful and fill the house with the smell of flowers.

    1. Hi, Carol! How nice of you to drop by and comment. I read your blog and find it cary touching and courageous. I love lilcas, and very much like spring flowers: lily-of-the valley (which also smells beautiful), daisies an dother small and beautiful flowers- most of them are gone so quickly, but after the winter, they're the first sign of something beautiful.

  2. Beautiful flower! I need to take my camera out for a walk soon!

    1. Hi Andrea, please do that! I'd love to see the pictures! Besides, just had a look at your site- what an awesome ressource for all travellers- followed and liked :)

  3. Beautiful photos! I think orange poppies like this are the state flower of California!

    1. Hi MaryAnne! Glad you like the pictures, and good to know that orange represents something more than the Netherlands. I really like these poppies, they're cute I also saw them in yellow, and I think I liked those even more!
