SPRINGGGGGG-(onion)/photo.of month

It's Spring, so here are two pictures of spring onions/chives in my garden. The first one is still 'budding' and has a baby stink-bug on it (so cute). Please click on the pictures for detail (they're much better that way).

The European Fine Arts Fair + Rest. Beaumont

Tefaf, 2nd time.
This year we decided to stay for a weekend so we could enjoy this amazing fair and also the lovely city of Maastricht (With generous help from Dick) .
Eric had managed, once again, to book a great hotel at a great location. When we got to our room, there was a cold bottle of bubbly waiting for us (pre-arranged by Eric) which set the tone for the whole, amazing weekend.
Our room was a little basic but comfortable and I do recommend this place if ever you decide to visit Maastricht: Hotel and restaurant Beaumont:
We decided to have our meal at the Hotel's restaurant, which was extremely good! We were advised to book a table and, by eight, the place was full. A lot of the people eating there were locals which is always a good sign. The service was very good, the food and wine, excellent and the ambiance pleasant. It was so good, that the next day (after having looked around in this culinary city) we decided to go back to 'our place'. WV5ofBYbPr2mB5WOO-S8CU-onTAhkIuh_k7rKhhEefURbbm9UR6KyY1Ww9C5p_lgnjk-86IeMCpe6itmM2sqJs4mPIzy0lnLrgBzSc9JMYEqte_lJLVyY6oE.jpg
The hotel arranged regular transport to the TEFAF for free and, the next whole day was spent, 'drooling, longing and dreaming' at this worldwide, renowned fair. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of modern art for sale, this year, but also enjoyed looking at the old Masters (Rembrandt for only € 34 million.) 

We looked at everything...from Jewellery (of course) ... to Egyptian, geographical finds ... to clocks (again, of course).
Dream on Son.
