Thank you Melissa and Bojan.

Melissa, it's nice that you noticed the drama. It warranted it, because it's a very special little place, about one minute walking from my door. In the back, by all the trees/bushes is a long pathway where people can access their gardens. They buy or rent the little lots all along there to grow their fruits and vegetables and they get the land very cheaply by the Dutch government as an incentive to a "green" mentality. I love this. I never got one, because it is very labor intensive. You have to carry your own water from the little pond in there, bucket by bucket back and forth. But, everything in the world is growing back there and I'm fortunate to have nice friends who occasionally bring me little care packages from their harvests. #7276633
