If you remember from my previous post, we visited my families hometown and took in the sights by bike. We stayed with my cousin, Marina, who I found to be a kindred, gardening, spirit.
Here is a post dedicated to the lovely gardens Marina has built in her back courtyard.
Most of the backyards of the homes I visited in urban area's of The Netherlands, had petite backyards. My cousin Marina, has utilized her space to create a multi-season perennial garden.
We enjoyed a lovely dinner outdoors during our stay.
Does this look cozy or what?
More colorful blooms
And the perfect touches of whimsy.
A dish for the butterflies.
Splashes of color at every corner.
And cozy nooks for taking in a morning cup of coffee.
I enjoyed every ounce of my cousin's garden and took away great inspiration.
A love for blooms must run in the family.
If you're considering a visit to The Netherlands, let me know. I've got just the place for you to start you visit.
