The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Follow a tree: June 2015

The ornamental cherry tree peaks too early. In March she was awash with beautiful blooms like a peacock showing off her fine plumage. 

People come by in droves to take photos. Stopping off and enjoying all that amazing blossom. 

Now she looks like a dull Cinderella, after the ball no ones visiting. She’s all alone. 

But the canopy is broad and the leaves are green. 

 
She’s very healthy looking. And what of the maid in her shadow?

Last month I pointed out the statue. 

 The statue stands in the sloot, or ditch.

She has names and a date. 

Hendricus Johannes Tieman (Den Haag, 15 augustus 1921 – Rotterdam, 18 januari 2001) was een Nederlandse beeldhouwer, keramist, tekenaar, glasschilder, monumentaal kunstenaar en vervaardiger van mozaïek.

This artist was born in The Hague and died in Rotterdam. He was a Dutch sculptor, ceramicist, sketcher, glass painter, monument artist and creator of mosaics.

Guus Zuiderwijk was at the royal academy for art sculpture in The Hague in the 1960s. He was then a teacher from 1976 to 2002 and teaches now in another place. 

 She’s very sweet. She was relocated into the water some years ago after several instances of vandalism. She’s not looking bad for fifty one.

    The girl is looking great for 51! 😉 And after haveing suffered instances of vandalism, even more so. I like the cherry tree in summer, too. It is splendid in full bloom in March, sure, but a lush green tree has its charm, too.
