our home and garden


After weeks of rain we finally have a sunny day here in The Netherlands! Perfect weather to spend time in the garden. Here are some images from our garden (in full bloom) and home that I took this morning.

  1. Enjoy the weather! Your garden looks spectacular. Congrats.

  2. Just lovely! I love Dutch homes- so clean and they have great lines.
    Is that verbena bonaris?

  3. My hands are very dirty from working in the garden today… it was lovely outside. Your house looks beautiful, with the very dark brown paint of the house and the purple flowers in your garden.

  4. Being from the southern US, it’s very unusual to see houses and barns in a dark color with white trim. Due to our excessive heat, our homes are usually light colors, or brick. The contrasting colors are so warm and inviting. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Looks beautiful! I guess the rain did your garden some good!

  6. Your garden looks amazing. Consider yourself lucky and have fun under the sunlight. Congrats:D

  8. Oh my it’s sooo gorgeous. So envious!

  9. Would you please post (or repost?) photos of the interior of your home? After living through the manufactured “debt-ceiling crisis” in my home country of the U.S.A, I need some uplifting!

    Thanks in advance.
