My Dutch garden.   My holidays.

 

To the Dutch website / Naar de Nederlandse website.Nederlands / Dutch

A garden in Holland. 
Welcome on the gardensite of Thijs de Graaf.  A site about my hobby 'gardening' and 'photographing plants, insects and other animals'.  (

Hertshooi (Hypericum elite 'Orange Wave') The pictures of my garden are from different seasons. Winter, spring, summer and autumn and have their own charm. In "spring 2007" and “summer flowers” I describe many plants.
Also I have mentioned my house plants and euphorbia. On the page "garden" you can see pictures of the front- and back garden.

Comma (Polygonia c album)  Family Nymphalidae In 2007, I  have started to describe the animals in the garden. Many insects have their own page now. (butterflies, damsel-dragonflies, flies,beetles, bugs, hoverflies 1 and 2, wasps and bees, spiders). And several subpages.

Harlekijnlieveheersbeestje (Harmonia quadripunctata). Genus Harmonia. Onderfamilie Coccinellinae. Familie Lieveheersbeestjes (Coccinellidae). 

My holidays

Prachovské Skály  (Prachov Rots) I also have made some pages about different holidays. I describe the landscape as much as possible. Of course I have made a choice. The first pictures of France are from a long time ago. But also the pictures of Ireland and Scotland I had to scan.  New 2015: Croatia Eden Project

The dunes

De duinen In January 2009 I have made a start with a page about the dunes around here. De duinen


The first photos are taken with an hp photosmart 735, from 2007 with a hp photosmart  R818, from 2008 a Fujifilm FinePix S9600 and from May 2010 a Sony digital camera DSLR-A450.

I wish you much joy!

August 2012.

Het weghalen van een zieke paardenkastanje.

The removal of our sick horse chestnut.

When we came back from our holiday to Australia ( on June 1) one of our chestnuts already lost all its leaves. There was no sap under the bark. 
I have made
a report of the removal of the tree on August 2, 2012.
Photo 5 June 2012: You can see the difference with the left chestnut and the chestnuts on the front of the house.
