Rondje langs de dijk

Time for another photo post. Summer is here, and it’s here with a vengeance. That means many walks in the sun. This time we walked straight out of our own little village along the dike. wpid-20150620_172232.jpgA sneaky crawler in the hedge.wpid-20150620_172242.jpg The grass is so tall right now! From a distance you can’t see all the things it’s hiding, it just seems like one thick mass of flowering grasses. Which it is.  wpid-20150620_172802.jpgBut look!

I love all those flowers.wpid-20150620_174143.jpg

And the poppies went “Mayday, mayday, abandon ditch, our feet are getting wet!” wpid-20150620_175857.jpg

There used to be a castle here. Not too long ago the muncipality rebuilt the shape of the grounds, with its star-shaped moats.wpid-20150620_180553.jpg

And what’s hiding underneath them is great, too. No troll this time.wpid-20150620_180958.jpg

The light was weird this day; this strange mix between not quite sunny but very bright. My camera had trouble dealing with it. I love the play of the leaves against the background though.wpid-20150620_181113.jpg wpid-20150620_181134.jpg

And we stumbled along someone’s pretty garden, right next to a potato field.

Oh poppies, you must be my favorite flowers. Sigh.wpid-20150620_181839.jpg

I’m fighting with my crochet project, grr. Maybe a few pictures in the next post, though.
