Amsterdam-Abcoude, the Netherlands
Into a blue iris dream…
This beautiful patch of blue irises (Iris spuria) seemed to be dreaming in the warm morning sun, and dragged the viewer into their dream…
Photo made in the wild flowers- and herb garden at ‘Zon Alom’ – centre of the Nature Association “de Ruige Hof” , an organisation that works for the preservation of two natural area’s in Amsterdam South East: “Klarenbeek”, a part of the Hoge Dijk, and the “Riethoek” (Reed Corner) .
The “Hoge Dijk” (High Dike)
is a natural area in the South of Amsterdam SouthEast, adjacent to Abcoude ( Google Maps )
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.
