MID DECEMBER MUSINGS

 

 

Side buildings of Fraelemaborg Manor, Groningen. Holland
Now a museum, built in the 17th century.
Sorry, I couldn’t come closer to get the doors in the capture.
Also, even though there was not a sign “forbidden to walk on the grass,”
grass is considered (almost) “sacred” in Holland.

For Makro-Tex was not sure what was meant with “Seasons” – to me this included more than one.  So the photo above is for Fall, the flowers for Summer, the deer display for winter.

White flowers, seen in the  Hortus gardens in
Groningen, Holland

A church window in a small town in Holland, Lunteren,  where we lived for one and a half years, and our first experience living in a forest.
It was a breath of fresh air, leaving a too busy life.
This reflection and the next image, remind me
some windows of time are so short, like a sizzle.
Grab it quickly before the window closes:)

  2. There is an injured deer here and there is a local rehabber who hopes to dart it to evaluate it or euthanize it…stressful and sad…..

  11. Hi, Jesh. I love that sizzle in the sky photo of yours. It has me thinking of the hind end of a dragon as it soars forward. 🙂 Love your deer photo, too. He looked like he was checking out his human neighbor.

    Great reflection and I love the deer photo!
    I lived in the appropriately named “Bucks” County Pennsylvania for years but I was never able to capture such a wonderful deer photo.

    Jesh – love your mid-December musings – an eclectic mix of photos. I am amused by the observation that grass is almost sacred in Holland. Then what is the point of the table and chairs on the lawn? That is quite a set of antlers on that buck! Enjoy your weekend!

  22. Wonderful photo of Fraelemaborg Manor and a beautiful sky shot. But your photo of the deer is my nr. one today.
    Actually I don’t know a lot of sacred grass fields overhere. I’m affraid I will have to consider that as ‘fake news’ …
    I hope you’ll have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thank you – my brother lives close to Veendam – will come by later to see your skies, because I’m painting – there might be more signs where I lived – in cities like the Hague, etc.Of course “sacred” is heel erg overdreven:)
