We cooked a summer dinner for our dear friends on Friday!
The food was delicious and the evening was so enjoyable and special in many ways.
The corn flowers on the table, I especially picked for Chris, because I know she likes the color so much!

Yesterday we visited Lammie and walked around her flower garden.
So many beautiful natural corners, colors and surprising details.
Lammie's shop, home and garden are always a source of inspiration!

At Henk's office there is an annual photo competition for the staff.
The five winning photos are printed on canvas and then exhibited in the office building for a year.
One of the winning entries was this picture of the garden flowers we picked for last goodbye to granddad in the summer of 2012.
Henk took the canvas home last week and Pippa wanted it very much in her bedroom.
The flowers look great in the room of our flower girl!

Because we only have purple ones in our own garden, Lammie brought us this a cute colorful bouquet with pink, red and lilac sweet peas last Sunday!
Oh, how i love sweet peas!

We have been busy in the backyard lately, which means we have a brandnew lawn and more space for a flower garden.
I've sown lots of flower seeds on the sunny side of the garden yesterday. This year I picked Cosmos (pink, white and orange), Zinnias (multicolored, striped and large) and Tagates (African Marigold) and I've made some wooden seeds signs to mark their spot.
The Hollyhocks and Lathyrus have survived the mild winter and are growing fast, the Sweet Peas are already blooming.
Well the sun is shining today, which is of course a good circumstance for growing flower seeds.
Fingers crossed for a beautiful colorful flower field and sunny summer!

That single Snowball flower gives the whole room a delightful fragrance.
The treasured vintage bamboo mirror we bought in Bayonne last summer, provides the room with sunshine throughout the year.
