Dahlia garden – Bredene, Belgium – part 1

“More than 250 different kinds of dahlia’s, which represent about 10.000 flowers, bloom in the recreation park: a real treat for the eye, especially in August and September!”

That’s what draw my sister and me to Bredene during our holiday in September 2013. We thought it would be very interesting and it was. Such a lovely mixture of colors and different kinds. Therefore I will make a mini-series about the Dahlia flowers.

Today my dad lost his fight against cancer. He was diagnosed with stage 4 brain tumor. My sisters and I got a whole year to say goodbye to him. We are so thankful for this. 21 years ago our mum also died of cancer. We didn’t have time back than to say goodbye. Now we all have two guardian angels who watch over us and our children.

Come home safe dad! We all love you and will miss you.

Your daughters: Karin, Heidi, Kristien, Ulla & Baerbel
