    i thought that breakwaters are at shore,you can walk on them ,but it is not a paving.

    My dictionary gives the Dutch word "loot" as a shoot or a cutting, which makes sense in a way, but "a shoot" and "a cutting" refers more to when we take a piece from a small plant and put it in the ground to root and grow. What was your Dutch word? .
    a small piece of a plant and put it in the ground we call ''stekken'' for a few or ''stek'' for a single one.
    if we are cutting a piece of one plant and place it on another one,for making a new kind of them ,then it is ''enten'' or ''ent'' for a single one.

    ''stem '' is ''stam'' but knowing you this is a type mistake. we use for the left over of a coppiced tree ''stronk'' almost the same word.

      What the pink and blue arrows are pointing at are breakwaters, or you can say groynes. They jut out into the water and help to stop the current washing sediment too far along the bank, or they prevent erosion of the bank. Sometimes they are just of wood, sometimes stones or concrete, so yes, you could walk on them, but not like a proper pathway.
      When you said "are at shore" you probably mean the seawall, a concrete wall built along the shore to prevent erosion.
      ''stem '' is ''stam'' but knowing you this is a type mistake. we use for the left over of a coppiced tree ''stronk'' almost the same word.
      No, I was using "stem" the English word and trying to compare it to the trunk of a tree, which is why I put it in "..." If all the tree is coppiced then that leaves only the stump.
      Your "ent" is our "graft".
      Actually, if I remember rightly, an "ent" was one of the walking trees in Lord of the Rings.

        2 images of the front garden,the crocusses are done now,the daffodils are in bloom,and for the tulips have to wait,but it's mostly still leaves,not much of upcoming blooms.meanwhile the pionyrose is shooting out the earth this moment with the sun it gets.

          Your front garden looks so pretty against the green in the background. There's a weeping willow there already in leaf - I saw one when I was in Norwich last Thursday but that was right in the city, while those around here and on the road to Norwich are barely showing green. Though come to think of it I must go down to look at the one by the river, the massive one I photographed once may well be coming into leaf as we have had quite a few sunny days lately. But it is still so cold in my area, the east wind is biting although not so strong as it was.

                i made yesterday (with Wesley,Cornel and Marijke) a other walk,the same as the first one,below the bridge and beaver country
                and i can't remember that i had seen this 4 weeks back.

                a beaver castle.



                and it's not even a small one.



                they didn't show up.

                        this net won't catch/contains much fish anymore.



                        even on the water there is a smiley.

                          What are the flowers at #200? I would have thought species tulips because they are out before the normal one. My best ones that I have photographed before have made a very poor showing this year and are over. But you said your tulips are not out yet, so it can't be that. Whatever they are, you have a lovely sharp centre on each, Thijs.
                          In the following post I like the yellow flower best as there is more sharp detail in the centre.
                          The beaver is doing quite a bit of tree felling, isn't it? Incredible that they can get through such a thick trunk. That's the big disadvantage with these creatures - the damage they do to the trees. For that reason I am in two minds about their re-introduction here.
                          I like the net picture, quite an abstract image. And the smiley!!!

                            they are tulips,but in the backgarden,so they get plenty of sun,(if there is sun).

                              The beaver is an animal you wouldn't want to have biting on your (wooden) leg!
