Holland - Birds in the cold

These days there are cormorants in de Lier
when we still lived there we didn't see them

We arrived when ice was still in the river

The ducks are standing on ice in the rain, brr.

Dutch Flowers

Ineke and Arie grow Cymbidium orchids

they try to grow them as straight as possible
with the help of a spring loaded hook and line

little branches they try to sell like this
in Glass with "gel balls" & water in the bottom

Usually annuals would have been going in the ground

but the only flowers we saw outside were some snowdrops

Last Sunday we walked to church in de Lier

It is the church in this picture, as you can see spring is still to come

Cops & Robbers

Marc's friends came over for his birthday party

We had "gourmetten" for our meal

But the main part was playing Cops & Robbers
they were outside for hours

Hamilton angle

I need the photo-shop straightener today
We dropped Olga at M25 house while Gwen & I
shopped for love-seat material

The owner of the store helped to pick this out
I think it will look very nice

Olga Gwen & I went to Hamilton

It feel strange to have a road going through a factory

We helped to put stuff in the container for Bill & Jayne

Kim made us look very strong, she carried most of the weight

Working together as one body supporting each other

Last Sunday the dust was flying

Now we got a little "dust" of snow
We missed the big snow storm

Snow mobiles

I like the evening sky
Going down the hill is a snowmobile path

At Egan's they go in the ditch because there isn't enough snow

Tristan has a snowmobile this year

It was snowing all day
