Hello lovely ladies,
How are you all? I have travelled from Malaga to the Netherlands and now I am staying with my mum who, as most of you will know, is 98 years old. She lives independently in her own apartment and it is always nice to go and see her.
My card for today is this one:
It comes from Germany, from a town called Hildesheim.
It can be found in the north of Germany and has a lovely historic centre. The photo shows a street called Brühl.
The Brühl is a historic street in the southern part of downtown Hildesheim , which in addition to well-preserved half-timbered houses is home to several other significant sights.
The stamps are the normal run-of-the-mill stamps with the flowers. But they are very pretty nevertheless.
On the left is the Centaurium. It is a genus of 20 species in the gentian family, tribe Chironieae, subtribe Chironiinae. The genus was named after the centaur Chiron, famed in Greek mythology for his skill in medicinal herbs. It is distributed across Europe and into Asia. (Wikipedia)
In the middle are the bluebells. Hyacinthoides is a genus of flowering plants in the family Asparagaceae, known as bluebells. (Wikipedia).
On the right is an aster. Asteraceae, also called Compositae, the aster, daisy, or composite family of the flowering-plant order Asterales. With more than 1,620 genera and 23,600 species of herbs, shrubs, and trees distributed throughout the world, Asteraceae is one of the largest plant families.
What else can I tell you? I have had a lovely time with my son who came over for a flying visit (just a weekend) but we managed to pack a lot into that weekend.
One morning we went to the plot to see what my fruit trees were doing. They needed pruning and watering. We also weeded.
On Saturday night he took me out to dinner.
We had croquettes, a Cesar salad, and a platter of 'all-sorts'. I must admit it was so much we couldn't finish it and had to take some of it home....
Then on Monday we drove to Malaga where he took his flight home and I met up with my sister at Ikea. A visit to Ikea is a treat for me as we live so far from the nearest store. So I checked out all sorts of side boards and tv furniture.
I stayed two nights at my sister's in Marbella.
They have a beautiful tropical garden and my b-i-l was picking lemons:
And this was the harvest for that day:
One last photo of my and my sister outside the restaurant:
Have a lovely weekend and
I am not at my computer at home so I don't have that many funnies.
