Day #18: a sweet gift!

Last week one of our kids from daycare left us and as a little goodbye gift we got these hyacinths in a cute basket... I really love flowers and especially the smell of these ones are wonderful. When I was watering them the water drops slowly slided down the young leaves...Day#18I so can't wait for these to start flowering!! I'm still in the flu mode and well looking at these kind of brought a little smile to my face!

Then I got this cute little award from both Sarah & Kelly.. Thanks girls and so glad you're loving my blog and my project 365. It has been so much fun so far and love visiting all your lovely blogs and have seen tons of amazing, inspiring photos these three weeks, you ALL rock! So here goes...

Ooooh Petra, I just noticed this after I uploaded my 365 blog! Thank you so much for this award. It has really cheered me up! Even in het Nederlands. Je foto is mooooi! Het groene van de bladeren, de druppels. Geweldig!

Ik hoop voor je dat je niet dezelfde griep als mij hebt en dat je je snel weer beter voelt. Ik geloof dat half nederland ziek op bed ligt.

Groetjes,

Biancka

Beautiful photo!! I LOVE Hyacinths ... especially since during this part of the dreary, cold winter we need a little flower and pretty scent to tide us over until spring time. :)

Thank you so much for the award, sweetie ... I am so flattered!!! You are so very kind to think of me!

Hope you start feeling better soon!
