Thursday Challenge; Garden

This Thursday's Challenge is all about; GARDEN (Flowers, Vegetables, Rocks, Orchards,...)

And it so happens I made some new ones;

Highlands

After watching the new series Outlander (I also read the wonderful books by Diana Gabaldon) I am homesick for Scotland more than ever! So I thought it was time again for some photos even though it's been a while since I've been there. Just to lift my spirits up;

 Loch Rannoch

 Culloden Battlefield

Thursday Challenge; Yellow

This Thursday the challenge is Yellow (Anything with the colour yellow in it,...)

My Yellow flowers are quite popular with the bee and bumble bee population. Not only for the nectar, but they also die in them:

Clouds

While we were cycling to a friend yesterday I've made some nice cloud pictures in the countryside. Of course we didn't make it all the way without getting wet. But I can't complain, I love this weather after all! :)

Fungus in August

It's been a rainy August and a rainy holiday for us. But I really don't mind. I long for Autumn! It's my favorite season and the heat of last July is not my favorite weather. But because of the many rain there are already a lot of fungi to be found.
These in my street alone:

Summer Holiday

Well my summer holiday is here at last. The weather is not to bad either, it's much cooler and a bit of rain now and again, which I don't mind at all! Not that I'm going away or anything, just the thought of not having to work for the next two weeks should be relaxing enough. I say should because I always need time to adjust the first few days.
And what do I do on my first day? I have already washed my windows (even though it was supposed to rain) and now I'm sitting at my laptop. I really need to think of what it was I wanted to do... Relax, read loads of books and go away on some daytrips by train. But for now... Just go with the flow...
