Thanks Annoja, It was such a beautiful place. The Netherlands is so green - I was going to do a b&w of the picture but then you wouldn't see the green!

Yes, such beauty. How old do you think those trees were? They remind me of some very very old trees in a town in Malaysia call Taiping. They are a bit bigger but shorter but looks really grand. See if I can find a picture. OK, here you go Taiping Lake Garden. These are called the angsana trees.

Those were cool trees. I don't know how old they were but I would guess they were planted around 1684 when the palace was built. You can read about it here:

This is a great picture. Do the leaves change color in the fall? That would be a great picture!

Annette - I could photoshop it then I wouldn't have to go back in the fall to see it!
