De Vlinderhof in het Maxima park


In Vleuten (bij Utrecht) vind je het Máximapark. Een uitgestrekt park waar je heerlijk kunt ronddwalen. Een mooi onderdeel van dit park is de Vlinderhof.  

 
 

De Vlinderhof is een, door de bekende tuinarchitect Piet Oudolf aangelegde, bloemen tuin. Heel bijzonder is ook dat dit een bewoners initiatief is en dat de tuin door bewoners wordt beheerd. 

 
 

Een hof voor de vlinders. Met heel veel bloemen waar vlinders graag op af komen. 

Maar vandaag waren er, waarschijnlijk door de harde wind, geen vlinders te zien, alleen mooie bloemen. 

Het maakte mijn bezoek er niet minder om. De tuin is niet zo heel groot, maar er is wel veel te zien. 

 
 

De gele en de rode zonnehoed waren goed vertegenwoordigd. 

 
 
 

Trekpontje

De snelste manier om (met de auto) bij de Vlinderhof te komen is door te kiezen voor de parkeerplaats aan de Alendorperweg nr. 44. Daar kun je dan met een trekpontje naar de overkant van de Vikingrijn gaan. 

 
 

Máximapark

Het is aan te raden om goed te plannen waar je naar toe wil gaan in dit uitgestrekte park. Verdwalen is hier niet onmogelijk. 

En hoewel je nooit echt ver van de bewoonde wereld bent, zou het zo maar kunnen dat je heel lang onderweg bent naar waar je eigenlijk naar toe wilde gaan.  Je ziet hieronder de plattegrond van De Binnenhof, een onderdeel van het park.

De Vlinderhof heeft een eigen website: Vlinderhof.com

 

De Japanse tuin staat op mijn lijstje, net als veel andere zaken in dit mooie park.

The World of Alvergar: Chapter 1
The World of Alvergar: Chapter 1 The Storm awakens - #iwantthisbooster #shortstory #partnering #fantasystories Short Explanation: - The story of the “World of Alvergar” is an interactive story that is made together with everyone on Yoors! In this story, we bring this world to life by adding many different characters, places and events. It takes place in an imaginative Middle Ages where all kinds of adventurous stories take place. And the best part is that YOU can help! To make such a world I am already thinking a lot myself, but also like to hear from you, the people/writers/readers what you have to add to this. So let's build this together and let our creativity go.!! Which preceded.... - We have already added a lot of characters to the world in the previous blogs. (I will write more about this later.) So we have already nicely described our main character Flint and the village where he lives. We also have a start for the story, namely the storm! So for now I thought it was a great time to start Chapter 1 of the story and REALLY write something about the adventure of Flint. I would like to hear tips and feedback about my writing of the next story. I'm used to writing scripts and this is going to seem more like a story from a book. So I personally have no experience with this... BUT YOU PROBABLY DO! 😁 So be sure to give tips and feedback on the story and add something when you know something! Chapter 1: The Storm Awakens - It's a beautiful day in Emmenfield. The beautiful village that originated from cheese trade and also the buildings of cheese are. It's a quiet day for the Cheese Smith and his son “Flint Smithson”. The Smith is busy making a big cheese hammer, this makes him for the Emmental family, the richest family of the village. They have built Emmenfield over the generations and now have complete control over the cheese market. This also creates rivalry and crime. Because the Emmental family is only busy benefiting and keeping their own family in power. Are small groups formed secretly to stop their. Flint sits next to his father and looks at an old portrait of his family when he was little.. Here his mother stands up like a young woman next to his father. Flint was still a little boy with two big teeth. His father asks him if he can bring the hammer away. So Flint puts the picture away in his bag and tackles the hammer wrapped in a nice piece of fabric. His father waves him off while he takes another bite of a block of cheese. Flint runs across the market from Emmenfield to the big house of the Emmental family. He's stopped by a strange character, it's a goat person named Gar of the Chévre family. He tells about the rivalry of the Chévre and Emmental families. These families have been fighting for years, now more secretly than before. And if he brings the hammer to the family, that this will be the end of normal life in the village. Flint decides to ignore this and continues. On Suggestion of @Janne Marthies this rivalry has arisen. Arrived at the big house of the Emmental Family. He knocks at the door with the big door knocker. This looks like a beautiful golden ring in a cow's mouth. After waiting for a while, the big door opens slowly and has a heavy sliding sound. Whoever opens is not the servant as usual. It's no one but Rowdy Emmental this time.. Rowdy is a cow-like boy with the age of Flint. They've known each other since they're little and they always want to be better than the other. Flint is a bit surprised but slowly gives the packaged hammer. Rowdy asks, “Did you talk to anyone before you came here?? “Out of Flint's surprise he nods no. Rowdy says secretly: “Good, because no one can know that I have these until I'm done. Your father knows that, too. Fortunately, I sent him a surprise to make sure he doesn't say anything!” Flint looks up a bit of fright, Rowdy laughs and knows the door. Flint quickly runs to his house. Arriving at his house, he sees his father sitting with a cup of hot tea. Next to him is a strange man but he also seems to be sitting quietly. Flint walks towards them are the man introduces himself as “Albus Blaze, the Wizard of Emmenfield.” Flint doesn't recognize this person from his village and yet he's lived here all his life. Something doesn't seem to be right here. After a short conversation between them, Flint's father tells us that Albus is here to help give the village more life. Right now, Gar is running. Calling to Flint that he shouldn't have given the hammer and that he should get it back. Gar grabs to the collar of Flint fasten a in a kind of fear he shakes him back and forth. Out of nowhere burned Gar, the wizard Albus has shot a fireball at Gar and says, “He knew too much.” Flint is able to promote and do not know what happens to him. His childhood rival Rowdy who has a Hammer he's up to and then sent this wizard to his father who just took down Gar. The Smith grabs a sword and hammer and calls. “What's happening here!” Albus responds: “A lot is going to change here and I'm making sure no one gets in the way.” Flint looks at his father who wants to fight in full rage. The Smith says, “If that includes killing people in Emmenfield, I'm going to stand in the way of it!” He runs at the magician and hits the fireballs on the side this he shoots. Just before he wants to hit the sorcerer there comes A HARD Bang! The sky darkens and in the distance there is a dark cloud. Flint and his father watching what's happening, right now Albus sneaks away. There's been a storm in the distance, the father lays down his weapons and captures Flint. Flint looks up to his father, still not knowing what exactly happens. His father says, “It's time, the storm has awakened, and you're the only one who can stop this.” The End of Chapter 1?

The survival of every day - tip 1
The first tip for the survival of every day is: dare to dream. The harsh reality of every day and the challenges it entails can make you lose your courage. Sometimes other people make our lives miserable; they laugh about your ambitions or warn you of disappointments. 'Dreams are cheating, 'they say. It can make you cynical, but don't fall for that trap! Tell me honestly, do you dare to dream? “Everyone dreams, but not everyone has the same dream. Whoever dreams at night, in the dusty pits of his head, wakes up to discover that that dream meant nothing. Those who dream during the day are dangerous, because they can pursue their dream with their eyes open, to make it come true.” - T.E. Lawrence - You have different kinds of dreams. They can be pure fantasy or very powerful in our reality; your life! Dreams that are not about anything or that inspire us. My encouragement is: go for the second kind. It's the art of dreaming the “dangerous dreams” of daytime. Think big. Think what makes you happy or happy. What if you never had to work again? What does your heart beat faster? What can be so real no longer? It helps me at least once a year to withdraw myself to a quiet place for 1 or 2 days and be busy with these questions. What do I dream of? Where do I want to be in 5 years? Someone once told me: “You overestimate what you can do in a year, but underestimate what you can do in five years.” That helps me not to dream too small, but at the same time be patient. So: write down your dream. Remind yourself, hang it somewhere where you see it every day. Share it with others, and let them remind you. Or share it in the comments below; what is your dream? #survival #tips The tips come from survival expert Bear Grills; the world's best-known survival expert, complemented by my own experiences.
