Gnomes or Kabouters

My cousin collects gnomes 

she has hundreds 

large and small

this one has the most details in it's face
it looks like the drawings of Rien Poortvliet

here the difference between a "real" and a Chinese replica
The "real" one has different eyes 

a few really big gnomes 

my cousin doesn't like to have her picture taken
so I took a picture of the dog

Arjo ar SV.CO

I like to see where my family works

Arjo works here at SV.CO
main product is kalanchoe and Chrysanthemum 

started the tour with these ladies

planing the chrysanthemums 

the pots all got showers to 
stabilize the young plants in the potting soil

on to the greenhouse

there are different transport lines going, here another line
and someone taking the plants off the line and spreading on the floor

all space gets used, people walk on the transport system
when the space is all filled

little cards tell when the plant was planted and moved
these are ready for harvest

another transport line brings the plants in the packing area

long lines ready to be packed and shipped

filling orders

matching packaging with the colour of the plants
