A splendidly-framed view of this beautiful rapeseed landscape and windmill so nicely layered!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Steven. It's always a joy to see!
Très joli ce moulin au milieu des fleurs jaunes.
Ginnie Hart: This time of the year, Martine, with the rapeseed in bloom, makes everything look like a fairyland. Merci.

oh i remember this, Ginnie! this is a seriously attractive image.
Ginnie Hart: It's hard to forget, Ayush, isn't it, especially when the rapeseed is in bloom.

I love these "see-through" views of that windmill, Ginnie. It gives a feeling of "home".... What a wonderful picture!
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Astrid. I LOVE this time of the year for our own special windmill!
Magnificent mill well maintained and surrounded by rapeseed that enhances it in a beautiful way
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Marie. It's like a miracle to me every time I see it like this. smile

Oh delightful! Love the fresh spring colours and of course the glimpse of the windmill.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan. It's like a fairyland for me when I see it in Springtime like this.

Looking up through the flowers and twigs is a fine way to set off the windmill, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It's like a miracle every year I see it, Lisl.

Oh, also an image of hope despite the name of the molen!
Ginnie Hart: You're so right, Philine! Bedankt.
Wat een heerlijk mooi plekje
Ginnie Hart: It's one of my favorites, Marjolein. Bedankt.
What a joy these windmills are Ginnie. You have framed this one beautifully
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Bill. I never grow tired of the Dutch windmills everywhere we go!

What a well framed picture Ginnie. It is some time since you posted a windmill photograph and I know how much you love them.
Ginnie Hart: I really DO love the Dutch windmills, Chad, and still pinch myself for getting to see them here almost everywhere we go! Thank you.

prachtige opname van deze windmolen in een kleurrijk landschap Ginnie


"Never Perfect"..perfectie bestaat niet, en dat is maar best ook..


have a nice dy
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Willy. "Never Perfect" is a good thing to understand about all of us, Willy, isn't it!
"Volmaakt" means "perfect" in Dutch?
It sounds more like "market" to me though.

Is the letter v pronounced like w in Dutch? Yes, like in German. Then, Volmaakt would probably sound like Walmart? And no, we don't have Walmart in Malaysia. We used to have Makro but then they went bankrupt and taken over by Tesco (UK).

Yea, Tesco is like your local AH. I actually bought some vacuum packed herring from AH there. (Cut onions included!)
Ginnie Hart: Are you rambling, LC, or connecting the dots?? HAHA. I love it. And I'm so glad you were able to "connect" with SC this time.
Oh isn't that just lovely, it would be nice to have that at the bottom of my garden.
Ginnie Hart: HAHA. Good one, Brian. smile
This is charming! Friendship
Ginnie Hart: I still pinch myself, Ruthie. smile
That's a beautiful setting for the windmill, Ginnie.........a lovely photo! smile
Ginnie Hart: It really is, Martin. Thank you.
It must be the Netherlands smile
Ginnie Hart: More Dutch you cannot get, Tom!
i have the breath in breath out part down Ginnie... yesterday was the first time that i got to sit out on the deck this year and the air was very fresh... love the way that the yellow flowers are holding up the windmill....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: You would totally understand, of course, Peter! So glad you had the chance to go out into the fresh air.
I love this view! Such a gorgeous composition! Sorry for the late reply - I've had some problems with SC - able to comment on some not on others...
Ginnie Hart: No problem, Elizabeth. You are always so faithful, so when you don't comment, I know there is a good reason. Still some SC kinks but not as bad as they were the last time, right?
Spring is bursting out all over....
Ginnie Hart: It truly is, Care!
