Village garden

Making the most of what you have seems to be a very Dutch characteristic. This tiny lot is a prime example of that. We pass it almost daily, and many others like it.

I’ll have to get a picture of the corner house next to the grocery store. The roses are so show-stopping that every time we pass it Elizabeth says, “Mom, we have GOT to get tips from the people who live here. They are just amazing at roses.”

  1. Yes, make the most of what you have because the Dutch are ‘zuinig’ (= frugal)!
