Some more shots from my long hike through the frozen polders and parklands in Breukelen. Goodness, it was sooo cold and grumpy clouded.

Here a typical Old Dutch farmhouse with wooden carvings decorating the roof-edge, and trained Lime or Linden (wikipedia) trees (espaliers) in front
Lime or Linden (wikipedia)
Espalier is the horticultural and ancient agricultural practice of controlling woody plant growth by pruning and tying branches so that they grow into a flat plane, frequently in formal patterns, against a structure such as a wall, fence, or trellis (Wikipedia )
