Cobblestones side walks and a brick street with lanterns.  Left overs from centuries gone by,  I make my way to the Wijk by Duurstede castle

on cobble stones
coming home on a week day
getting off the bike
That would be life in Wijk …

in the middle of the Netherlands
(Our world, Travel Tue, Tue Treasure, ABC Wed: N)



Among the items purchased
A potted blue hydrangea
wrapped in pretty paper
(Floral Bliss, Floral Fri Foto)





On the free way in Sacramento, it took me a moment -STORAGE DOORS – a lot of them! The blooms make it a little bit more romantic (if you don’t know how many telephone poles and cables I removed!)
(Makro-Tex: April, Thurs. Doors)





Or, change my frame of mind
and reflect on an
upside down life
(weekend Reflection)




Heard so many opinions today about things going on in the USA, I just want to hug a tree!!






and go with where
the wind and clouds
bring me

    Favourite is that first photo. Great selection of images this week.

  5. Very pretty hydrangeas as well…!

  6. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Yvette. Very typical street for a small town. This one leads to a castle.

  7. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Dan. It’s much easier to rind reflections in big cities than on the country side. This is a large puddle at a parking lot:)

  8. Betty Crow says:

    Love the street shot and the flower is beautiful! Happy Tuesday!

  14. Angie says:

    A narrow cobblestone street always seems so romantic … I also love the hydrangea – so fresh!

  15. riitta k says:

    Enjoyed my stroll through your photos. Hydrangeas are so lovely.

  18. Molly says:

    Love the cobbled stone walk, something so beautiful about them


  19. jesh stg says:

    thank you Molly, great use for y flat shoes:)

  20. You did an awesome job removing the poles from your storage and yellow mustard photo. If you hadn’t said so, we wouldn’t have thought differently. After I read that you had, I looked at the photo again and I found myself thinking there does look like something is missing. I used to hug trees. You reminded me. 🙂 Cheers, Jesh.

    I will hopscotch down those streets any day. Come by and check out my new post. I am slowly editing all my photos from Ireland.

  22. Norm 2.0 says:

    Lovely shots. I nice row of storage doors works for me 🙂

  23. Looks charming. But I HATE cobblestone – slippery when wet!

  24. I like the first shot and the reflection. Right now I’m sitting with the windows open, so an Aprilious, glorious spring day! Can’t beat that, even with the sound of mowing coming in rather loudly. 🙂


  25. I truly love the cobblestone street shot and, of course, the beautiful blue hydrangea.

  26. jesh stg says:

    Wish I wouldn’t kill them – no green thumb like you, Judy!

  27. jesh stg says:

    Nice! !Except for the mowing:)
    Here today its 40 degr. and there’s snow in the forecast for the weekend …so much for at nice, where I live:)

  28. betty - NZ says:

    A wonderful variety of photos! I love the charming street scene.

  29. Kay Davies says:

    Oh, yes, hug a tree! What a wonderful idea.
    And your final photo reminds me of the British Columbia interior, where I grew up, when there were small towns and no big cities nearby.

    That street is so picturesque! Really beautiful, and I love your sky shot.

  31. This is spooky your talk about hugging a tree, I am at a seaside resort with loads of tree-hugging men, I have a picture on my new blog and it’s especially for you dear Jesh. I’m sure you could create something like these men!
    Have a great week.

  32. Nice post with a great variation of beautiful pictures.
    Thats first one is indeed typical Dutch. The photo of the reflection and your Skywatch shot are wonderful highlights.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  33. jesh stg says:

    Since you have been in several countries in Europe – it’s customary for a middle class Dutchman to add a bouquet of flowers to their weekly groceries. And many Dutch husbands are great in surprising their wife with flowers.

  34. Now, that’s a habit I could get behind and certainly enjoy. 🙂

  35. Jim says:

    Great reflection shot.

  36. Excellent images! Have a nice weekend.

  37. Tara says:

    Very pretty! I like the reflection one the best.

  38. I want to stand in front of the trees and everything else that is being destroyed…. Lovely photos..Michelle

  39. Ahh, you remove wires too? I have decided not to do that. In Italy there are so many that I could be doing only that. 😀 Any special reason why the door photo is not straight?

  40. jesh stg says:

    So true, as well as underpasses and bridges, I’ve never seen as country with so many, and so consistently!

  41. James says:

    Beautiful shots! I’ve never wanted to hug a tree but I sure like to look at them. 🙂

  42. Cory says:

    Some beautiful pictures and I appreciate the descriptions. Liked most the Netherlands scene and the flower.
    Thank you for sharing this beauty, your travels near and far, and scenes/pictures that stir thought.
    Warm regards, Cory
