Sunflowers


 The weather is awful here at the moment with lots of rain, so a dived into the archives and found some sunshine photos of the opening of the "Van Gogh Museum" in Amsterdam in 2015.


The Museum square around the museum was filled with a labyrinth of thousands  sunflowers a tribute  to a famous painting Van Gogh once made.


Everybody could take a walk in the labyrinth.


A view at the Museum.

Floriade

The Floriade is  a world horticulture exhibition that once in the 10 years takes place in the Netherlands.This year it was in our city Almere. There have been many troubbles to organize it, the costs were extraordinarily and nobody could understand who wanted to visit this.  I have been there once and  was not impressed. Yesterday was the second time and I took a ride in the cable railway.


 A view over a highway was not so interesting.


 

But at last there were flowers in full bloom.


And I flew away with feather wings.

Het Bivak

Last weekend  the Netherlands had an anual "open Monuments" day. Mostly we go to look for something interesting in the country but this year we noticed  we had an monument in our own village Almere Haven named "The Bivak" We jumped on our bikes and cycled to an allotment complex. The "monument" happened to be a mobile home or construction barn that was used in 1975 by the first  people wo had to make a new town here. There were eight of these construction barns for  divers people to live in for some time and to think about  creating a new town.

This is inside the barn. They were meant to be used for  one year, but that ended three years later. 
Well it s a long story to tell here, but for us interesting as we live in this place from 1979.It is now in use as an office for the allotment complex.

Nature

I visited an allotment complex in our neighbourhood and saw this sign with a funny name in dutch for leaving thick branches here, a so cold "Branches place". It is to difficult to translate the "funny" joke name in english
