Eye candy

What I absolutely love about this place is the way that even ‘ordinary’ houses  and buildings are of such high quality and are usually embellished with something either beautiful or amusing. I wonder how much this helps the Netherlanders to be so happy and relaxed.

Some doors and windows in Groningen.

This is on the outside wall of a block of flats in Sneek – just for fun!

People make a lot of their windowsills.

Here’s an unusual window treatment – this is a shop, I think.

Ceramics outside a hotel in Workum.

A bird hide and some colourful houses.

and finally…they seem determined to pave everywhere. Makes the cycling easier.
