Lovely words to fit a beautiful picture, Ginnie! Good luck in the move, and have a wonderful Easter weekend!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Kay. We are here in A'dam safe-n-sound after a lovely, uneventful 4-hour drive!
I would think Amsterdam is about six times as much fun as Hanover, but the move do doubt stinks. Good luck!
Ginnie Hart: A'dam is very different from Hannover, Martin--you're right! You can't even compare the two! Pros and cons to each. But I guarantee you that we will love getting to know as much of A'dam as possible! How fun.

It's the same flower from yesterday, right? It looks so different from such an angle... almost like someone took a bite off from the petals! (no offence to God!) Your macros are getting better and better everyday smile
Ginnie Hart: It's not the same blossom, Mia, but one I took a year ago from a different tree in the yard. But I liked how dark and brooding it appeared, so I felt it was fitting for today. Those "bites" from the petals, you know, are the print of the nails, per the legend! Thank you for your kind words, Mia!
There is such a green tinge to the blossom. Is it because it is new? They are ususally creamy white here.
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Mary. I took this pic last year with my old camera (yesterday's pic I took a couple weeks ago). I don't remember why it has a greenish hue, but no, our blossoms end up creamy white like yours!

Ecellent lighting, focus and use of DOF Gramma Ginn. Super composition and framing. Great photo. Warmest wishes to you and Donica and good luck with the "move". Neil.-x-
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Meil. We have made it to A'dam safe-n-sound and are all unpacked. A great move!

A lovely greenish tinge to this flower. Will it turn sparkly white once it's fully open?

Good luck with your move, I hope it all goes smoothly for you. smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Ellie. I took this one last year (yesterday's I took a couple weeks ago) and I'm not exactly sure why it has a greenish hue. It may have been ME and not the flower. But they do eventually all end up white, yes.

Our move today was safe and without event. Exactly 4 hours. We had everything moved up into the apartment by 3p and had time to do a grocery shopping, unpack and still go out to a nearby Thai restaurant for supper! We are so fortunate!
Well Ginnie, you'll have a great collection of european pictures to share !! smile
Have a nice week-end !
I'm probably going to post next week some pictures captured in a aquarium ... hope you don't mind ?
Ginnie Hart: Of course I don't mind, Florence, about you posting aquarium pics next week. That will be fun for ME! smile

We are so excited about this move. I will want to explore every square inch, for sure.

I agree with Mia that this angle gives it a completely different feel. Lovely!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ruth. It's a different tree in the woods and is from last year with my old camera. Lots of different variables! smile

Good luck with the move *fingers crossed* better angle on this one for me Ginnie. smile
Ginnie Hart: The move was safe and uneventful, Chris. Perfect in every way. Thanks!

This pic is from last year, a different tree in our woods and with my old camera, so lots of different variables. This one seemed more approprate for today.
God bless you.
Ginnie Hart: I feel very blessed by God. Thanks, Busola!
I really love the light on this one added to the angle is a great shot no matter when you took it. Now down to business, I have you been to any coffee houses yet ? No just joking sweets, your move went incredibly smoothly and quickly by the sounds of it.
Ginnie Hart: HA! No coffee houses yet, Johnny, but if/when I go, you'll be the first to know. A deal? smile

Yes, it was a very fast and smooth move. It looks like it'll be a sunny day today (Easter Sunday) and we plan to go out walking around our neighborhood. I look forward to it.
wow ginnie amsterdam! happy moving. very nice macro shot. beautiful detail and lighting.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Genevieve. I'm so excited to be here I can hardly stand it. Wanna come visit?? smile

Thanks, as always, for your comments.
I love the angle on this, and the way you captured the green in the blossom. Hope your move is going well!
Ginnie Hart: We're almost completely settled in, Karen! Just call me a nester. smile We still need to get the Internet connected, hopefully by Tuesday? It took us over 3 weeks in Germany 2 years ago, but we jump started it when we were here 2 weeks ago, so hopefully it won't take so long.

Nice,Ginnie - well composed and exposed.

Trust you're settling in and making the place your own. Exciting times. But now you're in Amsterdam, I'll expect to see tulips here next! (Then canals ... bridges ... bicycles....
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Colin. Yes, the move has gone smoothly thus far. Now we just need to get the Internet connected, hopefully soon! And yes, the pics are already starting to collect in separate files for each of the categories you've leisted....plus a couple others, like Gables. grin

Very nice closeup, Ginnie! Dogwood blossoms are so unique and beautiful...I just love them smile

Another crisp picture of the dogwood and most appropriate quote for the day. Love it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Louis! That was one of the hymns I grew up with in my preacher-dad's home!
Beautiful and simple, simple and beautiful !!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks again, Zeb.
