    I was weeding-out my fotos to get ready to burn a DVD to save them on and I came across this film taken by my partner. I had actually forgotten about this file with AVI films in it.
    I can't recall what month this was, but I suspect July or possibly early August.
    It is short and taken with a small camera ment for fotographing single shots...but it had the capability to make short AVI films, so we tried it. I recall that this was made to send some english-speaking friends in the UK to give them an idea of how things were going in the garden.
    Excuse the quality, please.

    Just klik on the image to set the film in motion.

    It's so lovely to see a garden in full bloom just as everything is dying back now that October is here. Your garden is just so beautiful Sjoerd and I'm glad you found this film to show us as it has cheered me up on a wet and miserable day. :-D

    Oh Eileen...it's the same here, that's why I'm sitting inside sorting fotos on my first vacation day instead of cleaning up the lotties.
    Thanks so much for your nice words.

    Not only am I drooling over your garden ...again.... I have another case of garden envy. That is all just absolutely stupendous.

    What is that mass of purple right there in the middle of the picture?

    Lovely walk, thank you for posting that! :D Colours like those really help with the autumn depression. Everything is so bright and adorably pretty in that lottie of yours.

    now look at what you did, I have to dry up my keyboard. great video. I just wish I had half of what you do. I'm trying to plan out my garden area during this winter. That greenhouse will be sitting on the left side all the way back. giving me the right front to put in maybe some flowers and deffinatly pathways. My strawberries sit on the right backside then the herb garden in back of that. I do have another area but it is mostly shade, so I would need to put in flowers that like the shade. Please bring back this video for us a few more times to help us get through winter.

    Thanks folks for your really nice words about the video.
    I did find other films, but I will show them in the winter when there is less to see in the gardens.
    Petunia, it sounds like you have all your ducks in a row. You are going to have some neat things to show. I am thrilled for you that you got a greenhouse.
    Toni... that purple mass that you see iun front as the video begins is lavender.

    Thank you Garden gater, Gardengirl and Netty. You folks are very kind.
    I hope that high speed connection comes through soon...not only for this film, but there are other things that the extra speed will help with. Good luck.

    Well Sjoerd, I've watched your film and your garden is absolutely lovely! I wish I could walk that path in person so I can soak it all in. Gorgeous!

    Sjoerd that is absolutely one of the most colorful and just pleasent gardens to be in. Everything is just the right height at the right spots.

    Tell me the flowers that you do have, do you make anything from them, or dry them for arrangements, lotions, salves, ect. I seen a few different ones that i thought would be great for that.
