Foto Vrijdag: Still in Bloom

Mooie Straat
It’s definitely getting chillier here, but there are still some flowers in bloom. I came across this narrow, small side street the other day while out on my walk. I’ve seen it before, of course, since it’s right off the Oudegracht, but never got such a good shot of it. I love the flower boxes in the arched windows, and the ivy around the door frame. Add in the pink and red mass of flowers on the left that hang from many of the light posts here in the city, and it is a nice last touch of summer before winter’s arrival. The curving row of houses, the old-fashioned lamp, and the narrow brick pathway all add to the picturesque scene. It’s one of the many small streets throughout the city that just make me smile when I see them.

  1. Cool photo Alison, the colour, textures and composition go wonderfully together. Flowers in unexpected places like window-boxes are always fabulous, They did floral hanging baskets in the shopping streets nearby this year and they look fabulous too.

    • Thanks! I may try putting some flower boxes on our terrace railing next year. Some neighbors have them and it looks so pretty! Plus, the cats may be less likely to eat the flowers then. 😉
