Yesterday we went to Kaleden for our walk, and then on to Linden Gardens. The flowers continue to extend their variety and attractiveness. On the water there were hundreds of blue dragonflies busy doing all their things that they do in their short but beautiful lives.

Echinacea with bee

The bees were busy on the Echinaceas. The big white pom pom Hydrangeas really impress. All our cherries on our cherry tree are gone, eaten or dried up, but we sampled some delicious juicy black gooseberries, and a couple of apricots.

I have really missed visiting your blog! What a glorious treat you've posted here as a returning gift for me after my absence these past few days. Lovely to see Hanne casually strolling beneath the shady canopy of those willow branches. What a PERFECT day you were having! The dragonfly photograph is superb! So sharp and detailed, even to the blue eye! Wonderful, Michael! I love white flowers so the hydrangea is particularly appealing. I am trying to grow two tiny white bushes in pots in my garden, but they aren't looking very promising :(

OOH! I love gooseberries and homemade gooseberry jam! So glad to know "your garden" is still feeding you :)

So viele schöne Fotos.
Das Foto mit der Libelle (Dragonfly)sieht ganz toll aus.
Ihr habt viel Sonne, bei uns hat es seit einem Monat viele Wolken und immer wieder Regen.
Ein schönes Wochenende euch beiden.

Beautiful pictures, especially the echinacea with bee. It's a beautiful part of the world you live in. I have never tasted a gooseberry. Guess I should remedy that.
