View in Oosterwold

Was Sunday again looking at the newest district of Almere Oosterwold where you can build houses without government interference but with fixed rules about eco friendliness (such as no gas use) and that you must use at least 1/3 of your land for vegetable garden. You also have to take care of your own sewerage etc.  It turns out that a lot of people have trouble with that and have underestimated the cost of their own energy supply, which makes the architecture of some houses look more like a glorified shed. Still, there are some gems among them.

Our neighbor's magnolia seems to have something to offer. Blooms very early this year, by the way.

Painted facades

In the town of Tralee in the southwest of Ireland, this is truly elevated to an art. So nice to see. Some photos from a holiday in 2014. (Header Dam square in the evening)

Hurray it is Monday again

 Heard on the radio this morning that we would run out of our natural supply today if everyone in the world lived on the same footing as we do in the Netherlands. Would say keep it up. It doesn't look like behavioral change is really possible. An annoying but real message.

Another frayed edge gone.

Six months ago, it was still there. Now it's gone. Once a famous cafe restaurant Weesperzijde 250.

Village Streets

 From the archives. Small village street on Urk. Old fishing village once on an island in the "Zuiderzee". Now part of the N.O polder.

The first sunlight

 This morning, despite her age of 14 1/2, little Sofie ran up to the attic to sit on the shelf under the drawing board. Her favorite sun spot.
