Artist's Description

Amsterdam-Abcoude, the Netherlands

The “High Dike” (de Hoge Dijk)
is a natural area in the South of Amsterdam SouthEast, adjacent to Abcoude .
There are large water parts and lots of reed lands and low bushes, and wooded area’s.
Just like the Reed Corner (Riethoek) it’s a very precious natural ecosystem close to the highly populated neighbourhoods of Amsterdam SouthEast.

Vegetation of reeds, grasses and herbs is very rich and varied in this area.
Red Clover (Wikipedia – Dutch: Rode klaver ) , – yes, I know, it’s actually pink ;) – is a very common meadow flower in Western Europe. It is widely grown as a fodder crop, valued for its nitrogen fixation, which increases soil fertility. For these reasons it is used as a green manure crop.
It has also been reported that red clover has been used for a variety of medicinal purposes, such as bronchitis, burns, cancers, ulcers, sedation, asthma, and syphilis.
It is the national flower of Denmark and the state flower of Vermont.
