Always take a bag on a walk, you never know what you might find. We now have an afternoon of peeling and coring...hmmm... slightly less fun!

In a world that sometimes asks too much of me I can always rely on my garden to help calm the frayed edges of my brain. It's a special thing to look down and know that what's there is there because of the relationship between yourself and mother nature. I may only have a tiny courtyard area but it's mine to make things bloom and I love that.

Back from a few days exploring in Holland. More walking than the littlest really would like but we're gradually helping him see that it's by walking around places you really get immersed in how people live and you never know what you might find round the next corner. .

I like that in Amsterdam the bike is just a way to get about. There are no "cyclists", there are just people on bikes. There are no obvious pretentions over make or model of bike or type of cycle wear. Old, young, city-workers, youths, mums with buckets full of kids, all on the same type of bike and able to get about simply and safely Lovely to see a structure that supports that so well.

I looked up Rotterdam on Insta to see what people were seeing. These cube houses featured lots so we looked them out and they're as pretty as I hoped. .

I could probably convince you it was a beautiful day if I hadn't included the man in a head-to-toe sou'wester! 😁

Lady to her friend: Look at those funny ducks, they're an unusual colour aren't they? (They were seagulls...) Friend to the lady: It's funny how all the ducks are down this end isn't it & none are near the boats.

Lady to friend: That's because they've put a rope across look to keep all the ducks down that end.

A shortish wander around @upfest to the tune of a teenager & a pre-teen repeatedly asking "Are we going home yet?" interspersed with the occasional "How far is the car from here?". On a brighter note I liked this representation of diminishing bees from @sophielongart .

Bees are so busy that they're hard to capture but I'd rather have a busy bee than a posing one! Carry on doing your good work Mr Bee! πŸ˜†

I'm scratched, stung, had to shake off ants and flick off spiders, but @chilliflake500 and I have 2.5kg of ingredients for pies or jam and we've had a wander in the evening sunshine too. .
