Good Fences #5

We cycle more frequently and I enjoy it. Saturday we biked just outside our village, a beautiful, rural neighborhood. Along the road we saw green meadows, groves and barbed wire to demarcate the fields of different farms. We saw funny scarecrows in a strawberry field :)

We fietsen de laatste tijd vaker. Ik vind het leuk (en mijn man ook). Zaterdag 'namen' we de Haarweg. Langs de weg zagen we groene weilanden, groepjes bomen en prikkeldraad als afbakening van de verschillende stukken grond. We zagen ook grappige vogelverschrikkers op een aardbeienveld.


 
 
We also passed the war memorial on the Haarweg. There we've read the two names of war victims who died as a result of retaliation by the enemy. On the red marble memorial stone these words: Lest we forget. Around the war memorial you can see a beech hedge with beautiful green leaves.
 
We kwamen ook langs het oorlogsmonument. Daar lazen we de twee namen van oorlogsslachtoffers, die stierven als gevolg van een represaille van de vijand. Rondom het monument groeit een mooi beukenhaag met groen bladeren, die ritselden in de wind.

  13. Hello, and Good Morning,:) Lovely scenes with the group of scarecrows which look so lifelike. They fooled me, ( at first I thought the Lady Scarecrow dressed in pink and little girl also in pink were looker's on):) but I wonder how long it will be before the crows catch on! For all the effort put into this idea, I hope it works.

    That is a nice peaceful place for a war Memorial, and the matching colour of marble and stone is beautiful. Have a good weekend!:)
