Last week I visited the Orchideeën Hoeve in Luttelgeest. As always,I loved it! The greenhouses with orchids were somewhat bare. I thinkt it was harvested recently. But this was amply compensated by the many other beautiful flowers. Striking were also the beautiful hibiscus bushes in the tropical garden and butterfly garden. So many different colors. Fantastic!
Yesterday I had a wonderful day with friends in Amsterdam. It was completely perfect. The journey by train and in Amsterdam itself for the first time with the North-South line without delay. Then the day starts nice. Furthermore, it was especially nice. We have been busy with the preparations for building a website. We had a nice dinner. And in the afternoon I was invited to visit Artis. And then this lady does not say no, of course: P.
Sharing a number of photos that I made. We were lucky in Artis. Beautiful animals and as a cherry on the cake a beautiful sweet little baby.
Zwarte zwaan – Black swan
Hudson Bay wolf
Chimpansee – Chimpanzee
Roze peilikaan – Great white pelican
There was good news among the lowland gorillas. A little one was born there last week. First a picture of the proud father Akili.
And here they are, mother and child. Still so small. Magnificent!
Today I bought flowers at Passie Flora Salland to photograph. Many flowers, too many flowers: P I only photographed one this afternoon. I found this gladiolin so beautiful! The soft color the beautiful shapes. All beauty. The rest will be in next posts. If at least I have enough time to photograph them all before they are withered 🙂
Of course there must also be a monochrome version 🙂
After reinstalling my laptop, NAS and reorganizing the storage of my photos, I finally have time to photograph. The flowers I bought today were too tightly packed. The beautiful dahlia that I immediately fell in love with in the store, was completely wrinkled. Bah! Therefore photos of one of my orchids. An orange orchid with the name Cambria Catatante. He is gorgeous!
