    Re: Ditjes en Datjes of JANIHUDI

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Oh NO

    cut away loots,and still standing loots.
    I understand what you mean by "loots", but if that is an English word then it is the wrong one for this. To loot something is to steal it, or you can point to a sack of stuff you've stolen and say that is my loot. (We use it as a joke word sometimes when we have bought a lot of things.) 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?
    The "stem" of a tree is trunk, so when you have a coppiced tree like those you show, I suppose we'd just say one of its trunks, I can't think of a word for just one of several trunks growing from the base. However, it's clear what you mean even if it's the wrong word!

    Yes, I expected something like that!

    Many, many thanks for all your answers,Thijs.

    they are there,but didn't remark them,i wasn't there afteral.the ''cold war'' was running after WWII,so the start of building was after WWII.they build the most time consuming part in ''peace time'',so in case the cold war became a ''hot'' war then they only have to place the bridge parts,what can be done in a few days,the pillars are allready there.



    orange: pillars
    red : opposite pillars
    purple : trench
    grey : the removed pillars (one for shure ,but maybe 2 or even 3)(see trench)
    white line: my walk that afternoon
    bleu arrow: from where i shoot the pillars shots,with the in the water bridgehead.
    pink arrow's :from where i take some of the freighters images. (what is the englisch name for those ''walls'',we call them ''krib'' and keeping the river sailable.

    this is ''normal'' level



    but here is the red line, the level of the first 10 posts of the thread.yellow is the car dock.

    the floods are there almost every year,sometime a meter ,othertimes half way dyke or even at the top of the dyke,whats is a several meters.outerside dykes aeria's are from the gouverment ,Department of public works.farmers could rent it from them for extra meadow land and grass to make hay.for food production hardly used it,maybe in case that when they sowing something there and there came a late or a early flood the seed or the harvest could be flushed away.so the farmers didn't own it,so no compasation eather.there are now the cows and horses there,just for keeping the grass short,the cows are not for milk production.

    the bleu markers are the trees that keep saved,a lot was cut away,but the bleu dots trees are all still standing,what is also good to see in this image,cut away loots,and still standing loots. btw made 2 images of those kind and this one was in the middle
