Willow shadows

This lane of pollard willows looks really "crazy" with all those whimsical shadows and the trees themself looking so artistic.

Today I read something about the sky being so blue that day because no planes were flying, causing no white stripes in the sky. Mmm this made me look questionly at the sky today, another sunny day, and indeed the sky wasn't as blue as last week but was covered with white stripes.
Interesting........

Daffodils

These daffodils remind me of the following poem written by William Wordsworth:

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Futtering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
That stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay;
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sprakling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company
I gazed - and gazed - but little thought
What wealth to me the show had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Fruit trees

Guess we were a week too early for the fruit trees show no blossom yet! I "parked" my bike to take a closer look.
Blossom is slowly coming as can be seen on the next picture. With a little more sun these fruit trees will flower profusely!

Mr Duck

Hello Mr Duck
Don't shy away from me
All I want is to capture your beauty
With my little camera.
You look gorgeous with the sun
shining on your dark head
And the shadow of your body
in the green grass.

Blossom shadows

This beautiful sunny Spring day was good for many shadows. I decided to post this shot of ducks relaxing in the shade and other ducks enjoying the sun. Not hard to guess which spot I would have preferred on a day like this....

Cycling around Buren

Yippie it's that time of year again! Cycling, walking and having a drink outside! Here we are in Buren, a small, historical city in the middle of Holland.
We cycled from junction to junction. At every junction there is a road map giving you a good idea of your whereabouts and giving various possibilities to which junction you can continue cycling.Cycling and walking over dikes under a very blue sky in lovely Spring weather!
We cycled through the city gate in Buren.People relaxing and having a drink next to the little river in Buren, enjoying a beautiful Spring day!

Making music

This music group looked really fabulous, especially being watched over by this large bird!
To my regular visitors: SORRY but right now I'm not in the mood for blogging. Besides that don't have the opportunity to take nice pictures to share here! As soon as I do again I'll be back.
