Strawberry Picnics

It's a bit of a thing in my families to refer to regular country picnics as strawberry picnics and there is rarely a strawberry in sight. Then again, we do have an abundance of fruit present at these occasions. We are also a fan of the pretty, in the sense of putting rose petals in bowls. Now that summer has officially arrived (although Dutch summers tend to be of the fleeting, unpredictable kind), we have already planned this year's first strawberry picnic - next week to celebrate my sister's birthday - which was last month. Really, it's just an excuse to gorge on fruity treats and traipse around the country with a camera. At any rate, I shall report on the sweet tooth event and to sustain everyone till then, marvel over these pictures of a previous outing (in our back yard, admittedly).

And afterwards...

That was all that was left.

Floral Madness

I love flowers and what better way to celebrate that love is by sharing some photographs taken by my family and I. Enjoy.
