Originally I wasn't going to post this week, since I had no idea what to write. But now I'm actually going to tell you about the trees down the street from our house.
This is a shot taken earlier this fall. You can see the various stages of autumn in these trees...leaves mostly gone, somewhat gone, mostly not gone, and....still green. What a holdout.
The green tree (as it was above) is inside the traffic circle. These trees are some of the tallest near our house, at least that I see often enough.
During my NTS videoconference course, I tend to sit facing the window and just look at the trees.
Today was a nice sunny day, which meant I needed to go outside and cycle! When the weather is cloudy or rainy, I generally don't feel like going outside unless I have to, even though I love exploring.
The other day, I re-discovered the location of the Synod of Dordt (my husband had taken me there at one point)...learned some of the history of the narrowest street (Zakkendragersstraat - Bag carriers' street)...and just people-watched.
Our city is full of old buildings and old trees.
Imagine the stories they would tell if they could!

PS....next time I should practice writing in Dutch!!
