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...

Visit to Grave

When mum turned 70 last March my sis and I gave her a card. On it were 10 daytrips to determine by herand for sis and me to pay of course. We already have gone on two because of the extreme hot summer weather we're having the third one is put off.

The last one we went to a town where we used to live as children. My dad was a military man so we moved a few times and in this old town we've lived for six years. It changed a bit but not too much.
Grave is a fortress town and the river Maas (Meuse) is streaming along side it.

Thursday Challenge: Shadows

This Thursdays Challenge is all about: "SHADOWS" (Of Trees, People,...)

I may have posted this picture before, but not the one that followed this love birds heart shaped shadow. It's almost as if the pigeons made a 'we rock' shadow in the second one. Made in a London park in May 2013.
