The leaves are changing and drifting, so herfst (autumn) must be upon us. I was particularly struck by the beautiful red leaves of this tree echoing the red of the Utrecht shield held by the lion atop the gate.
What’s with the words on a Wednesday? Mainly it’s an excuse to mention that I’ve been nominated by Expatsblog.com for their Expats in Netherlands blog award. Part of the judging criteria is based on the comments left about my blog on their page for my site, so if the spirit moves you to say a few kind words, I’d be grateful. For those who already have left kind words, thank you! I’ve been honestly touched by the nice things people have had to say. While you’re there, you can check out blogs from around the world. It’s fascinating to read the broad range of experiences people have and how they adjust to and view their new homes.
