Flowers

The flowers are back…

Now the Christmas decorations are removed again, the flowers are back…

The flowers are back

And I have to be honest, how much I liked the Christmas decorations, I am happy the flowers are back again. They brings so much nice colours and wonderful scents into the house. With flowers in the house there is always a little piece of spring around. Flowers are for Rob and me part of the every day’s life in our houses. And because of that I am always very glad that when we go to my house that my mother always makes sure that there are nice fresh flowers on the table.

Sometimes people make the remark that when you have so often flowers at your home, flowers cannot be used as gift any more. That is not true, flowers are always a welcome gift. And is it so hard to come up with something else as a gift?

TV

There is something else I really like. This afternoon Rob and I were reading in the living room. Rob always put on some very nice music (As “Oxygen” of Jean Michel Jarre or “Wish you were here” of Pink Floyd). On his TV he loads a slide show with his most beautiful photo’s (and he has quite some).
So when you reading, you just have to look every now and then up from your to listen to the music. And then you look almost automatically to the TV that displays photo’s that hold so many memories.
I really like this kind of afternoons together.

Bloemen 26 November 2016
Also this weekend bought a wonderful bouquet flowers again. It is amazing how every weekend there is a nice bouquet on his dinner table again.

This is so far a nice weekend. Sanne, Marissa and Richard are visiting us. Jennifer and Miranda also wanted to come, but Jennifer should still keep rest with her knee. And even while Jennifer protested, Miranda decided not to travel. And we think that is a good decision. As soon Jennifer is all up again, we will plan a new weekend together.

Tonight we will go out for dinner with the whole bunch. The plans for tomorrow are still unclear

Flowers of this week :-)

by Marion on

In the series “Flower bouquets bought by Rob”, the bouquet of this week :-). As already told before, Rob buys almost every week a nice bouquet of flowers for on his dinning table. He has a very good taste for that. He composes the bouquets himself and he is doing a very good job at that.
I have created an categorie “Rob’s Flower Bouquets” here on the weblog :-)

And oh, he bought some very tasteful marzipan at a confectioner. Very very good :-).

Just some flowers….

by Rob on

People who have visited me, know that I have always flowers standing on the dinner table. Some say I do that for Marion, but that is just partly correct. Sure Marion loves flowers, but I also think that flower add to the warmth of room. And most flowers are wonderful to see. So I do this not only for Marion, but very clearly also for my self.

But these flowers always give a nice opportunity to play around with my camera. Specially of course with my macro-lens (Nikkor AF-S Micro 105mm 1:28G ED). Below a few examples…

Flowers… and something else…

by Rob on

Almost from the day I moved into my new house I have flowers inside. Some times roses or tulips… some times lilies… or as this time sunflowers.
I think flowers always add nicely to the good atmosphere of the house.

Apart from the nice flowers in my house, I have arranged tickets for Marion and me to go in January to Ellen ten Damme’s Cirque Stiletto. The seats are first class and are on a perfect spot. I will make a special day of it. After all we have something to celebrate then :).

This is one of the advantages of living on this side of the country…. there is so much going on here :)
