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
