Geen zorg, die lust ze écht niet! / No worry, she really doesn't like them!

De koe is gemaakt door Patricia Cabrera, het melkgerei en het krukje zijn door mij gemaakt.
The cow is made by Patricia Cabrera, the milking set and the wooden stool are made by myself.

Koeien trekken er hun neus voor op en zullen deze bloemen vanwege hun vieze smaak niet eten. Maar toch is hun naam een beetje “verwant” aan koeien. We moeten nog even wachten en dan staan de weiden er weer vol mee: vrolijk gele boterbloemen!

Cows absolutely don’t like them and won’t eat these flowers because of their bitter taste. But still their name is a bit “related” to cows. We still have to wait a while now and then the meadows are filled with: cheerful yellow buttercups!




En omdat het weidebloemen zijn heb ik mijn miniatuur boterbloemen in een weckpotje gezet, zoals mijn oma dat vroeger ook met de door ons geplukte weidebloemen deed ;).

And because they are meadow flowers I’ve put my miniature buttercups into a glass preserving jar, just like my grandma used to do in earlier times with our hand picked meadow flowers ;).




Ik had al een bos narcissen gemaakt voor de DHN-show in het najaar, maar ik ben ze intussen alweer ‘kwijt’ ;O. Dus heb ik weer wat nieuwe narcissen gemaakt, ook in verschillende soorten, zoals deze dubbelbloemige narcis….

I’d already made a bunch of daffodils for the coming DHN-show (in September), but in the meanwhile I've ‘lost’ them ;O. So I've again made new daffodils, also in different species, like this double flowered daffodil….


…..en deze witte, nog in een gesloten bloemknop.
….. and this white one, in a still closed flower head.



En nog eens allemaal op een rijtje ;O!
And all together in a row ;O!




Vanmorgen zat ik op mijn fiets toen ik van een afstand deze reeën in een weide zag lopen en doordat de wind de andere kant op stond, kon ik ze mooi even op de foto zetten. Een eind verderop liepen er al wat koeien buiten. Ja, ik weet dat ik ontzettend bof om in zo’n mooie omgeving te wonen!
Iedereen bedankt voor jullie fijne reacties, een fijne week toegewenst!

This morning I was riding my bike when I saw (from a distance) these roes grazing in a meadow and because the wind came from an other direction I was able to photograph them. A few meadows away there were even already some cows outdoors. Yes, I know that I’m a lucky bird that I live in this beautiful area!
Thank you all for your kind comments, wishing you a nice week!

Oh, I like your country scenes, Ilona! In reality or in mini they describe a world we forget (and it's a shame)
The cow Patricia Cabrera is beautiful and highlights the buttercups!
Buttercups or daffodils you always realize with great resemblance

So pretty! I love your buttercups!

Elizabeth S zei

Buttercups are my RL garden nemesis as well as the evil dandelions, yet when yours are seen in miniature, they've suddenly become quite desirable!
I had no idea that cows don't enjoy eating them but Patricia's Marvelous dairy cow, appears to be seriously considering yours! ;D

Daydreamer zei

Dear Ilona, I will become boring by saying once again, you are AMAZING!!! The buttercups are so beautiful and sunny and Real looking... I could be fooled into thinking they were the real flowers we put in our canning jars too! I don't know how you do it... you are magical with the blossoms!!! And Particia's cow is Wonderful... I so look forward to seeing the Byre... eventually! :):) Meanwhile you will milk her in that lovely meadow and carry the milk home! :)

Anna zei

Rosethé zei

Bonjour Ilona, tes jolies fleurs nous apportent le printemps dans le minimonde!
La vache de Patricia est superbe !
Merci pour les photos !
Ici, sur les collines, les vaches ne sont pas encore en pâture, juste quelques chevaux profitent du soleil printanier !
Belle journée ! Bises. Joce

Que vaca tan bonita!!menos mal que no se comerá tus maravillosos ranúnculos,por que sería una verdadera pena,espero que tampoco se acerque a los narcisos,que preciosidades,nunca he visto de doble flor y me encantaría.
Que bonitos los ciervos y que pudieras captarlos con la cámara!
Besos.

Robin zei

Beautiful buttercups, and the jam jar is just the perfect simple container for them. What a wonderful selection of daffodils, which demonstrates yet again quite how brilliant you are.

miniacollection zei

Patricia is such a great artist, her cow is amazing. A good thing cows don't like eating buttercups, yours are so perfect it would have been a shame if she had eaten them.

Hallo Ilona,
Je bent echt een buitengewone miniatuurtuinman! Je boterbloemen en je narcissen zijn zo ongelooflijk echt en gewoon mooi. Ik hou van ze allemaal.
Grote knuffel

N.B. Geniet van dat mooie uitzicht ... hier is alles nog bedekt met sneeuw.

Megan Wallace zei

It starts looking green. Your buttercups and daffodils are beautiful!

Beautiful countryside photos! How wonderful to be able to enjoy these lovely sights. Patricia's cow is an amazing piece of work. I love the accessories you made for her. And, as always, your buttercups and daffodils are exquisite.
Hugs, Drora

Tes boutons d'or sont extraordinaires.

The headline alone made me smile all over the face... and the arrangement with Patricia's terrific cow and your milking tools is fantastic. And while I'm already using a bunch of adjectives describing something awesome, stunning, wonderful, beautiful, terrific, outstanding I can directly build a link to your awesome, etc. (please see list above) buttercups. If it wasn't for the cent it would be hard to believe they're miniatures! And I can say the same about the daffodils - you know by now... list above please. But you've "lost" a bunch of daffodils??? How could that ever happen??? *grin* Well, maybe for enabling me to judge how awesome, etc. etc. they really are... ;O) Happy Easter to all of you - and an extra greeting to Paulien with best wishes!

Hugs
Birgit (Who enjoyed looking at your landscape pictures very much - yesterday morning winter made it pretty clear around here that it has not given up yet. 10 cm of heavy, wet snow in just one night... *sigh*)
