The summer is gone



The wonderful warm yellow English rose Golden Celebration is flowering again.
Today we had some rain, after weeks of no rain. Always so beautiful to see the drops on the rose petals.

It seems the summer is gone now, it is not so sunny and warm anymore.




The seeds of the Hollyhock. So beautiful in a web of "lace".




The lovely Dahlias always brighten up the autumn garden.

Flowers, flowers, summer memories



Flowers, I love to photograph flowers. In the garden, in the countryside, everywhere.
Most of the time I use my macro lens, to see and photograph the amazing details.




Scabiosa Purpurascens is one of my favorite flowers. The flowers are so delicate and have a wonderful blue color.




A single purple Columbine.
Below the hardy Geranium versicolor. All the photos I made of photos in my garden.

Summer in October




It feels and looks like summer, it is 25C :-), but it is October.
Of course it is nice that it is so warm and sunny, but it isn't normal and we haven't had rain (enough rain) for a long time. I'm worried about the climate changes.





I'm glad there are still a lot of flowers blooming in the garden. A few weeks ago I  bought the Anemone, I love the beautiful delicate flowers and it is a lovely autumn flower.
The sunny Aster is also flowering very good and is growing very well.

Still or again flowering in october








The beautiful yellow David Austin rose Graham Thomas is flowering again.
This is an English rose, with cupped blooms. It has a wonderful fragance.
I love English roses because there are flowering for a long time and these rose plants are healthy and strong.

The last days it is very warm, like summer, 24 C. 





This purple pink Phlox is still flowering in the garden. I have many Phlox plants they are perpect garden plants.

Autumn colors in October in the Dutch countryside




It is early October and the colors of the leaves of the trees are turning to gold, red or yellow. Because of the very extreme tropical weather we had in the summer, for weeks, some trees are having autumn colors for weeks now.

I made this photo with my new phone, the HTC U Ultra. I was looking for a phone with a good camera, after searching on the internet I found this one and I'm very happy with it. 
Now I always have a camera with me to make a photo :-), because it is not so practical to have my Canon camera with me all the time.

Sunny white Rudbeckia



Last month I also bought a white Rudbeckia garden plant. There are also beautiful, like the purple ones.
There are photogenic too :-)
I used my 250 mm Canon telelens to get close to the flower, I couldn't get close enough with my 60mm macro lens.



Purple Rudbeckia



Wonderful autumn flowers, the purple pink flowers of the Rudbeckia.
They brighten up the garden in fall.
Love the way they look with the petals a bit hanging down and the stamen at the top.
The contrasting colors a so beautiful too.

Pink rose in the morning sun




I was happy to see the morning sun on the beautiful pink flowers of the climbing rose. I don't know the name of it.
The sunlight created a very beautiful background too.

I made this photos with my Canon eos 70D camera.

The Swiss alps in spring



Maybe spring is one of the most beautiful seasons in the Swiss mountains.
There are so many wild flowers, flowering in the meadows and there is more snow on the mountains than in the summer.

This photo is taken in Berner Oberland, the Jungfrau region, direction of Grindelwald, with a view on the snow capped Wetterhorn.






The Lauterbrunnen valley in May. The Lauterbrunnen valley is also called one of the most beautiful mountain valleys of Europe.
There are many waterfalls coming down from the mountains.

View at the Breithorn.

Beautiful Rhododendron



The Rhododendron is one of the most beautiful spring shrubs, I think.
Love the sunlight on the petals of the flowers, great moment to make a photo
:-)
