    Hi I thought I'd create a thread for summer photos in the UK and all over Europe, not to be prejudiced as I want @DoubleDutch to share his lovely photos too.

    Today I decided it was a fine afternoon to walk along the golf course and check on "my" trees - I've had my eye on the elderberries, cherries and blackberries to actually go and forage for them when they are "ready" to be picked. I have found tons of recipes for the above - specially elderberry wine, elderberry infused gin, elderberry syrup for the colds and flu during winter.

    Sadly the birds ate all the wild cherries so none left for me :(

    But I got a really nice surprise when I stopped by one of the trees and saw something unusual

    HAZELNUTS!!!!

    OMG I was so stoked and my cousin didn't even know they were there to begin with. She is one of the grounds keepers and cuts the grass on the courses. We are planning to go end of August to pick the rest of the nuts (or the squirrels will scavenge them) and hopefully get some elderberries if we can find them. There are plenty of blackberries to go round so I will be picking a ton of them for jam.

    Pics of the golf course as I'm actually in charge of their website and adding updated photos on there as soon as I get really nice photos.

    I also work there too, at Scalm Park Leisure.

    And at Carp Lake, one of the 3 fishing spots, right in the middle of the golf course.

    Some Dutch summerpics.

    On the white bridge are two white birds.
    The pole is an excile pole of the city I live in (Hoorn). In the middle ages people that had to live in excile weren't allowed pass there.
