Oh lovely pictures - my wysteria ia about to burst into flower too - can't wait.

heerlijke foto's. als ik al niet zo blij was met lente, werd ik het nu wel.
en je badpak is zeker niet te pink. ik heb over het algemeen nix met roze maar heb ook een roze badpak met witte stipjes! vorig jaar spraken 2 meisjes in het zwembad mij aan: 'mevrouw, u hebt een mooi badpak'!

Such lovely fresh colours. No I do not think the pink is too bright. Unless you are very pale skinned bright colours look better in the sun, not all washed out like the softer ones.

What pretty pictures of your garden! I love the polka dots - on the dishes and swimsuit!

Ik vind je badpak fantastisch!!!! Heerlijk hè, al dat groeiende en bloeiende buitenspul! Je hebt goed je best gedaan met het afsoppen van je spulletjes, da's nog een secuur werkje!

Heerlijk hè die lente dagen?! De tuin is mooi en het wordt inderdaad tijd voor een nieuw jasje of een nieuw badpak. Natuurlijk kan dat niet genoeg kleur hebben! Heb je al logéetjes in je huisje? Ik hoop dat we nog lang kunnen genieten van het mooie weer!
