Copied your blogfeed, uncle Beefy, to spread the word but mostly the feelgood.

I spent this easter weekend in Oosterbeek, the village where I grew up. A beautiful village near the city of Arnhem along the river Rijn. We visited a special garden that belonged to the estate "De lage oorsprong", before WO2. Both house and garden didn't survive the war. The glory days were over. A few years ago an enthousiastic couple decided to give the garden a new life. They moved into the old gardener's cottage and started to make their dreams come true. With the help of a lot of volunteers and people with expertise they have succeeded in realising a solid and interesting structure that forms the base of this maturing garden.
