...dating back to the 8th - 9th Century.
With the most beautiful garden....
carefully 're-designed' over the last 10 years
with great love, heart and soul
...to bring back it's authenticity.
Now, even on a gray April-Sunday-Afternoon..
...it looks - just simply wonderful!
With all these specially choosen tulip's -
dotting around to give a few spots of color here and there.
. . . . .
I really had the need to 'catch the moments' with my camera
when I was visiting my friends yesterday,
...the house and courtyard...
looking what's 'new' or...any changes? Or new planting? Or....?
...all the different varieties of these tulip's...
doesn't this one look like a rose blossom?
A "knock-out" for me
and a MUST to have some for next year at our place !!!!
Time to go home, but quickly a few shots of the church....
The door was unlocked.....and... what a surprise....
...to see the inside.
Never saw such huge columns/pillars
in one of the Romanesque churches here in our region!
(and I've seen quite a lot of them!)
What an architecture!
looked around our garden...
...found one single Hyacinth flowering...(sadly enough - only one this year!)
But during my 'inspection'..
I discovered that our "Chinese Beauty"...
With the first blossom.
"Slowly Dear, slowly! Don't rush"!
And this first blossom is for Trish from Trouvais!
Spring is such a special time in the year
everything comes back to life again!
I know that I announced since weeks! to write a post about my German trip in March.
And I apologize to everybody who was - or still is - looking forward to it!
But....spring - garden work - blossomed trees - tulip's and peonies have "interfered"!
It will be definitely this week! Promised!
