Pink saturday part 9: De Meijtuin, the garden of Jopie Kooiman

This post is the follow up for yesterday's post. Last Thursday I went to a very special garden in Klaaswaal, called: De Meijtuin. In the garden there's a small shop with brocante, the pictures of the crockery were all taken in the shop. The owner of the garden is a woman: Jopie Kooiman. A lot of the plants you see in the garden are for sale in the nurserygarden. I've spent hours and hours in the garden, it's one of the most beautiful gardens in The Netherlands.

There is also a possibility to stay overnight because in the garden there's a wonderful bed and breakfast house.
In the garden is a tearoom where drinks and cakes are being served.

The address:

De Meijtuin
Oudcromstrijensedijk Westzijde 49

What a l♥vely Pink Saturday blog entry. This is the one day of the week when I get to sit for a couple of hours and soak in my favorite color. Thanks for being a part of that day☺

The flowers and your photographs are literally breathtaking!

Wishing you and yours a wonderful family weekend. I will be remembering my father who served in WWII, and praying for all of our military who are in harms' way.
