Mid Summer at Het gazebo

It's Summer vacation in The Netherlands! 25 C in the middle of July.
Diepenheim was not effected by last weeks flooding.
We're 236 km north of Maastricht.
The volunteers were weeding around the Hostas in bloom !
Het Gazebo is looking great for the festive reopening garden party !
Just watch out when you stop and smell the hostas !

A perfect day in July to be at Het gazebo !

Around 20 C, sun, cloud, a light breeze !
Strawberries and cream are not only enjoyed at Wimbleton !
  Strawberries & cream is a classic Wimbledon dessert ever since the tennis tournament started in 1877. Over the years the combination has got so popular that on average 10,000 litres of cream and 28,000 kg of strawberries are consumed every year during the two-week tournament!
The hostas are blooming beautifully at Het Gazebo !
A great month to visit !
Thanks for volunteering today !

Warmest June in 132 years !

June here in The Netherlands was wet, 
sunny and the warmest in 132 years !
An overcast, dreary, high of 15 C today.
It's a good thing we can look back
 over the last few blog posts and check 
when we had those very warm days !
What a day to be weeding and splitting hostas!
These weather conditions are perfect for hostas !
We sure can enjoy the results !
Thank you for volunteering !
It must have been quite a muddy day!
