My world Tuesday

Since my camera doesn't work properly I had a look at the old pictures and slides my husband has digitised recently. It really was a walk down memory lane. Wonderful. I came across these photos of Freudenberg in Germany where we spent our holidays in 1974 when we were on leave from Australia. This is a beautiful little town with characteristic houses built of wood and clay.
I wonder if anyone knows if it is possible and how to improve these old pictures? They all look a bit hazy.

My World Tuesday

This is our world today. I wonder if we'll have a white Christmas. Would be the first this century.

That was last Saturday

An then on Sunday we had a blizzard that left about 15 cm of snow.

My World Tuesday

This morning when I woke up the world looked magic. We had the first frost last night and the garden looked as if covered with caster sugar. Unfortunately my camera did not work properly so I can't show you a photo. Instead I show you some pictures of one of the most beautiful parts of the Netherlands, Zuid Limburg, situated like a wedge between Belgium and Germany. The photos show the Belgian country side but were taken from the Netherlands. There is no formal boundary anymore so while driving you don't hardly realize that you left your own country and have entered Belgium.

The electricity poles and wires show that it is Belgium for we don't have those in the Netherlands. Electricity wires are all led underground in our country.

Skywatch Friday

I thought this was a nice picture for today. Looks like shooting clouds. I took it in our garden on a rather clear day. A good contrast to the cloudy and gray skies we have had for some days now.

My world Tuesday

My world or rather THE world seems a little confused. Usually this time of year should be freezing cold with all plants retired and all leaves fallen off. And when we have our garden ready in October grass won't grow and weeds don't pop up anymore. Not so this year. Lots of rain and a temperature of around 15C keeps grass and weeds growing and our geraniums flowering. Wonder if we should take the lawn mower out again.
