Winter January 2004  

Dorpsstraat winter 2004 winter garden


The photos belong to spring, because they have been taken in March 2005. But itís a wintery atmosphere .

winter, street winter

The street was fairy-like.                                                                                      The first trees on the left are chestnut trees.

A peanut feeder, a wire-mesh, cylindrical cage, with holes for shelled peanuts. Several species, including titmouses Eurasian Jay,  and woodpeckers, consume peanuts. I Ďve made some holes larger. So it is easier for the birds to get the peanuts.

Snow has bent the tops of the bamboos

Two extremes.
The left photograph has been made 3rd February. On the marguerite daisy (chrysanthemum frutescens) a drone fly thought spring had already started. A flowering marguerite daisy is also unusual.
The photograph of the pond with the bamboo (Phyllostachys bissetti) has been taken on 8th February.  (5 days later!) I have the bamboo surrounded with a barrier of special plastic. Depth: 80 cm. So the rhizomes canít  break through the  of the pond foil.

The heron flew away immediately when it saw me.


Walk in the winter. December 20, 2009.

There was snow and the sky looked beautiful. This time I did not walk to the dunes. But to the forest and to the meadow opposite the forest.

At the crossroads a tree is cut down. A part has been left with a statue on it. Sin of the tree. But it is very nice

I walked back to the road. On the left are meadows. There is also a footpath.

If you  enlarge the last photo, you can read on the board  "paddenpad" . That means toad path.  But  now you will not see toads.


I walked back home.
