  1. Awesome! Waarom wist ik dit niet? Prachtig stukje natuur, wederom fijn vastgelegd. Ik ga er ook binnenkort eens heen. Met mijn semi Veluwe-roots ben ik pro-groen in de stad en parels als deze mogen niet onontdekt blijven. Bedankt!

    1. Haha, dat dacht ik ook! Ik kom er bijna elke dag langs! Maar zeer zeker de moeite waard. Pro-tip: neem een boek & bakkie mee voor ultra fijnheid 😉

  • I’m currently riding the minimalism-train and am getting rid of a lot of things I don’t need anymore. Cleaning up my bookshelves was one of the things that scared me most but was actually pretty easy. I’m only keeping things I love & plan to re-read, and of course my collection art and design books that keep me inspired. This is one of my most special possessions, ‘Juniper’ by Monica Furlong. I got the Dutch edition of this book, and it’s predecessor ‘Wise Child’ at the library time and time again as a kid. I was enchanted by the stories of the kind witch in a medieval town, and the setting in Scotland & Cornwall made me eager to travel. Now, as an adult, I’m happy to have visited those magical places and have these two stories still enchant me. I re-read the whole series (discovered there’s a third book too!) a while ago and it made me fall in love all over again. What book did you re-read as a child over and over again?

  • Is it just me or are you also feeling a bit overwhelmed the weeks before you leave on a vacation? I’ve got everything neatly planned & am ready to go (I am that kind of person) yet my brain just won’t leave me alone! I have many list of things to-do before, during and after my trip and am currently sailing one of those inspirational waves I don’t want to waste. #FirstWorldProblems you guys! Super excited to leave though, just one more week! 🖤

  • A lovely memory from my visit to the botanical garden in Leiden last week. If you know me a bit you might know I have a (healthy, at least I think…) fern obsession and the garden in Leiden has a beautiful variety of ferns. This collection outside, in combination with the rocks and moss, I found so peaceful and pretty. I always want to touch moss when I see it by the way, is that just me? 🌿💚

  • I’m currently wrapping up the final chapters of ‘The Hidden Life of Trees’, by Peter Wohlleben and although I find it a quite slow book to read I love the new way I look at trees now. I learned how trees and fungi build a communication network, how trees move water up from their roots to their leaves and why trees change color before they shed their leaves. Super interesting! I love books that change the way you look at things – do you have a recommendations in this genre? 💚

  • Happy Monstera Monday everyone! The Victorian Greenhouse in Leiden’s botanical garden is great except for one thing: the butterflies. I’m probably a minority here but they just really creep me out. I’m not sure if it’s their fluttering, their creepy bodies (you only look at their pretty wings but they’re still a frightening insect in the middle!) or if I’ve had a traumatic experience in a previous life: butterflies are a no for me. Fortunately for this photo I was protected from these nightmarish creatures by the lovely @tessa2809 and I can proudly say I’ve survived. How about you, are you on #TeamButterfly or not? 🦋
