Sunday's In My City...

Hello from super hot Holland!! wow is it warm! We go from one extreme to the next here. This is going to be a short post. I went to a BBQ today and met up with my two favorite bloggers. I had the best time. Thanks to Unknown Mami I am able to show you a bit of my world here..Make sure to head over to her site and check out what she and everyone else is up to! The above picture is of out train station...Notice the advertisment..it's in english:) You actually see alot of that here aswell as english commercials.
                               
 On the other side there is a strip of water and the kids love running through it. I thought about doing it myself!
  I've been hanging out in my overgrown backyard snapping photos.
   My butterfly tree is getting ready to finally bloom!
 So is my hydrangea bush:) I'm heading to the couch now with a glass filled with ice water! Have a wonderful week and see you next sunday!

Nice! I actually have a friend in Holland.........I'm sure you know him since Holland is all..I don't know, a small place and all....Just kidding. I do know someone in Holland though. He has a gardener. Which I think is exciting.

Oh my gosh Sonya! I LOVE your overgrown garden pictures. They are stunning as can be : )

Your new blog layout is nice and crisp! Glad you had a great day! I totally think you should have raced in the creek : )

I'm a little jealous of the BBQ with your fellow bloggers. Sounds like so much fun.

I am happy that no matter what country I visit, I can always find some signs in English. It sure makes getting around easier.

I love the pictures of your garden!

I really enjoyed our BBQ and can't wait till we meet up again soon!
Your pictures are beautiful as always and I think I am slowly convincing Fran in buying me a better camera ;-)

Lizzy said...

Finally that summer weather we've been begging for is here! I bet your yard looks so pretty with all those flowers! Hope you enjoyed the BBQ too! What did you end up taking?

Tara R. said...

Your flowers are beautiful. I loved the city shot of all the bicycles.

It is always fun to finally meet our bloggy pals in person.

These are lovely, Sonya! Our hydrangea blooms are HUGE this year...probably b/c we've actually had some rain in Georgia.

Can't wait to see the blooming butterfly tree!

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

P.S. Give me the details about the goodie-box swap!

These shots are so beautiful! I love the blurry, yet bright backgrounds.

Yes, the peppers were delicious! That said, I think banana peels would taste great deep fried!haha
