Monday morning feeling

My feeling this morning when I opened my blog and blogger had changed my name and I couldn't open my own blog. It seems I had made an other account years ago and suddenly it pops up. Took a lot of trouble to got back on the right track. All that software updating gives sometimes a real headache.

dinsdag 21 oktober 2014


Was this weekend on an excursion with a ranger in the Oostvaardersplassen. Normally this natural area is not accessible to the public, but sometimes there are excursions that are already fully booked months in advance. Thanks to the staff association of biebs former employer we got this opportunity. 
She also has a posting about this excursion today that you can find here .
The most excursions are always held against sunset when the animals are most active.
These heck cattle are the only ones who are not allowed on places were normally also humans have access to. 
Sometimes the bulls will attack
When the sun comes through you can imagine the african savanne.
It was a very successful excursion although a little colder then I thought.

Its that time of the year

After 35 years of maintaining our garden we decided to get some professional help.
It was a lot of work.
As gardener you need all kinds of expertise.
Now waiting for the result.
